Cicoil Cat 6A cable for harsh environment applications
By Alyssa Dalton
Apr. 9, 2015 – Cicoil has announced its new “lightweight and ultra flexible” Cat 6A cable, which promises exceptional reliability when flexed, twisted or routed through tight spaces thanks to its flat design. Compared to other Cat 6A cables, the cable’s design allows for easy stripping and a significant decrease in cable prep time, adds the company. According to Cicoil, the extrusion process allows four individually shielded 28 AWG 100 Ohm pairs to be placed in a small, flat profile, precisely controlling the spacing of each component, insulation thickness and the overall cable shape. Cable assemblies, complete with connectors, are offered in 3-ft, 6-ft and 12-ft lengths.
