Superior Essex Announces Industry’s Smallest CAT 6A Cable

September 10, 2018

Superior Essex announces that an improved version of its 10Gain XP cable will debut at the BICSI Fall Conference 2018 in San Antonio, TX. The new 10Gain XP CAT 6A plenum rated cable’s diameter has been decreased to 0.25 inches OD, making it the most cost effective, and only Category 6A UTP cable available at that size. The smaller diameter provides an improved cable pathway fill ratio, a smaller bend radius, and increased airflow efficiency in data centers.

This segmented tape shielding is the only design able to provide real UTP systems with the total interference protection of shielded cabling systems without the hassle of a costly continuous shield and the “bond & ground” process. This is the safest solution available on the market in accordance with NEC codes, TIA standards, and industry best practices when considering the increase in high PoE applications.

“The new, smaller diameter 10Gain XP CAT 6A plenum cable offers significant size advantages in tight spaces and less environmental impact without compromising on performance or safety. Our new design uses approximately 20% less material than the typical CAT 6A cable, and offers complete protection against alien crosstalk interference at a significantly lower cost than competitor products,” says Amir Sekhavat, Director of Global Product Management for Premises Copper.

BICSI Fall Conference and Exhibition will be held at the Henry B. Gonzales Convention Center in San Antonio, TX, September 9th–13th, 2018. Superior Essex will exhibit from booth #427.

Produced in a zero waste to landfill plant, 10Gain XP and its family of premises copper cables are also supported by Health Product Declarations (HPD) and third-party verified Environmental Product Declarations (EPD), which allows these products to be used in building projects and contribute towards LEED points required for green building certification.
