Category 6 UTP Channel-Level Patch Cords


Signamax continues to set the standard for high-quality, high-performance patch cords with two series of category 6 patch cords. Our category 6 cords are 100% transmission tested to component performance as specified in ANSI/TIA-568-C.2. Assembled in a con-trolled environment using advanced manufacturing techniques to ensure consistent quality, these patch cords provide exceptional performance when mated with our category 6 connecting hardware.

Our Channel-Level Category 6 cords provide an excellent level of performance and are designed for less demanding applications. These cords are 100% tested in a 4-connector channel configuration to ensure consistent performance.
Signamax category 6 patch cords incorporate slim-profile snag-free boots, which protect the plug latch, and a flexible, but durable cable strain relief and are compatible with both T568A and T568B wiring schemes. Category 6 Channel-Level patch cords are manu-factured using ETL-verified stranded cable designed for greater flexibility and service life and are available in eight popular colors and a variety of standard lengths.

  • Transmission performance per TIA/EIA-568-C.2 channel performance specifications
  • 100% factory tested to 4-connector channel performance
  • ETL verified 26-AWG stranded cable
  • Rated for at least 750 plug insertions
  • Enhanced plug-to-jack connection integrity
  • Slim-profile snag-free boots with durable flexible cable strain relief
  • T568A/B wiring scheme compatible
