Category 6 SkinnyPatch UTP Modular Cords - North America


Siemon's SkinnyPatch 6 Modular Cords deliver category 6 performance with a reduced cable diameter for improved airflow and increased flexibility in high-density patching areas. The cord's smaller 28 AWG stranded copper construction offers a significantly tighter bend radius for easier cable routing and enhanced cable management, providing pathway space savings in racks and cabinets while facilitating moves, adds and changes in tight spaces. Confirmed by Intertek, an independent third party test lab, SkinnyPatch 6 Modular Cords exceed ANSI/TIA-568-C.2 and ISO/IEC 11801 Edition 2.2 performance standards. These cords also feature Siemon's patented metallic isolator for exceptional NEXT performance and innovative 360-degree crimp for excellent plug-to-cable strain relief.

  • Jacket meets flame resistance requirements for both CM and LSOH
  • Features a nominal OD of 0.16 in. (4.0 mm) for improved airflow and flexibility in high-density applications
  • Clear boots and optional color clips enable a single cord part number to be custom colored coded
  • Integral latch guard protects plug from snagging when pulling through pathways or cable managers
  • Internal load bar provides consistent terminations and ideal pair geometry
  • Patented metallic isolator inside plug for consistent, exceptional category 6 NEXT performance
  • Ultra slim boot further facilitates high-density patching
