Low-Smoke Zero-Halogen Cat 6 Patch Cords are for use in patching environments with poor air circulation where personnel and equipment may be exposed to corrosive gases and fumes during combustion. The cable jacket for these cords is designed to minimize the release of halogen gases and toxicants into the air, reducing the potential of hazardous contact in occupied spaces.
Patch cords shall provide Cat 6 performance for cross connecting in Cat 6 systems comprising of equipment, cable, and appropriate connectors. The patch cords shall use 24-gauge stranded UTP conductors with a standard 8-position modular plug and strain-relief boot on each end. The cords shall be available in 1-, 2-, 3-, and 5-meter lengths. Product shall be manufactured to meet performance and assembly requirements per ANSI/TIA-568-C.2. Product shall meet ANSI/TIA1096-A requirements.
