Why Flat Network Patch Cable
A flat network patch cable allows you network cabling installation in a extremely tight place like under the carpets, up the walls and behind the furniture. The features of the flat ethernet patch cable is with much smaller OD and flexibility, but also the performance as high as normal network cables.
Flat network patch cable types
The flat network patch cords generally sorted 4 types, that is cat5e, cat6, cat6a and cat7. Cat5e, cat6 flat patch cable are generally unshielded(UTP), but cat6a and cat7 flat patch cables are shielded individually(SSTP).
Data transmitting speed
The data transmitting speed of these 4 types of flat network patch cables as bellow:
Flat cat5e patch cable supports 250MHz bandwidth
Flat cat6 patch cable supports 350MHz bandwidth
Flat cat6a patch cable supports 500MHz bandwidth
Flat cat7 patch cable supports 600MHz-900MHz bandwidth
The components of the flat patch cables
The most notable features of flat patch cords is that all cat5e, cat6, cat6a and cat7 composed of 4p 32AWG(7*0.08mm) stranded bare copper conductor wires. And for this point, greatly saved the copper materials and help to cut down the cost. What’s more, the connectors for the flat patch cables are generally with Two-Piece RJ45 8p8c plugs.
The OD of the flat patch cables
I think the OD of the cables is what we mostly care about, also this is the reason when designed to make flat patch cable.The UTP flat patch cable’s OD is generally designed to be 6.0*1.5mm, the SSTP cable is 7.2*2.2mm.
And there is another type, we call it super flat patch cable or ultra flat patch cable, its OD as small as 4.0*1.0mm, but this sacrifice a little quality of this cable,but its no problem to pass Cat6 Fluke channel test within 20 meters.
To sum up, flat network patch cable is a pretty but inexpensive product. Comnen as a leading patch cable manufacturer, provide all of the above network patch cables, for more information, please visit our web: www.comnen.com
