    Remee Wire & Cable Introduces Cat. 6A Cables with Reduced Diameters

  • Aug 19, 2020

    Remee Wire & Cable, a high-integrity manufacturer of electronic wire and cable for reliable performance, introduces new Category 6A cables with reduced diameters that meet or exceed all TIA standards.  The smaller size provides a number of advantages for installation, cable management and handling, while allowing networks to operate at 10 Gigabits per second.

    Remee Cat. 6A Cables feature a  nominal O.D. of .255 inches, which is only 80% of the size of previous generation Cat. 6A cables from Remee.  The reduction in size also makes these cables 20% lighter, weighing only 35 lbs. per 1,000-foot reel.  As a result, these Cat. 6A cables are easier to load, handle and move around on the job, and they are helping to prevent job site injuries.

    Due to their smaller diameter, Remee’s Cat 6A cables occupy less space, allowing more cables to fill conduit on the job site.  These new cables increase conduit fill capacity by 75%.  Previous versions of Cat. 6A cables with a nominal O.D. of .320 inches were limited to four cables, at a maximum 40% fill rate.  By contrast, seven of the new smaller Cat. 6A cables can be installed in conduit at a 40% fill rate.*

    In addition, these smaller O.D. cables occupy less space in crowded cable trays and facilitate handling in high density applications.  Because the smaller O.D. allows for more efficient air flow in conduit and cable trays, the 23 AWG solid copper conductors provide superior performance in PoE+, PoE++ and 4PPoE applications.

    Another important feature of Remee’s Cat. 6A cables with reduced diameters is they will provide the same  electrical performance over their larger counterparts.  The same Cat. 6A electrical characteristics are maintained, while getting other benefits from the smaller package.
