Kordz Releases SlimCat Thin Cat6 Cables

The new SlimCat line features Cat6 Ethernet cable that’s skinnier than others, along with matching crimp connectors and keystone sockets.

Backed by 20 years of global manufacturing experience and deep knowledge of the systems integration industry, Kordz understands what systems integrators need to design and install robust, reliable networks quickly and efficiently. Its SlimCat line comprises bulk-reducing 4mm diameter Cat6 cable and specially designed RJ45 crimp connectors and RJ45 keystone sockets for robust, compact end-to-end connectivity.

A cabling solution developed to streamline installation in smaller spaces or where retrofitting cable is difficult, SlimCat fills a void in the industry while supporting 100 watts PoE++ and delivering 1 Gbps network connectivity up to 50 meters. Illustrating the company’s strong belief in the value of robustness, the new SlimCat system incorporates Kordz’s 2000-cycle latch, the same one used in the patented connector in Kordz’s popular patch cords.

“For some projects, standard Category 6 cable is too bulky to install easily and discreetly. Structured cabling is a mature and saturated market, so we decided to approach the category differently by developing a complete Category 6 networking system of products that takes up significantly less space to reach areas that other cabling solutions can’t,” says James Chen, Kordz managing director. “The diameter of the unshielded 28AWG SlimCat cable is half the size of 23AWG and 24AWG network cable, highly flexible with a 32mm bend radius, and when paired with the SlimCat Keystone RJ45 Socket, performs to ANSI/TIA-58.2-D Category 6 permanent link standards up to 50 meters. As always, systems integrators can rely on the Kordz promise of ‘Connectivity Assured.’”

The SlimCat system comes with a lifetime warranty and complies with both EU and U.S. fire rating standards. Components are packaged in standard lengths in an easily identifiable Reel-in-Box.

Like all Kordz products, each component of the SlimCat system has been individually tested during each phase of production for quality assurance and adheres to the latest performance standards and fire ratings.
