Category 6 Screened 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 screened connecting hardware.

Signamax category 6 screened 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 screened patch cords are manufactured using ETL-verified stranded cable designed for greater flexibility and service life and are available in a variety of stan-dard lengths.
