Category 6a (CAT6 Augmented) is defined at frequencies of up to 500Mhz, twice that of CAT6.
At these high speeds cross talk, in particular alien cross talk, present a significant issue to reliable operation.
Shielding is particularly critical in environments with increased levels of noise such as hospitals, telco operations infrastructure, radio and television
broadcast applications, X-ray theatres and in the vicinity of mains power transmission lines, switch yards and substations.
Hypertecâ€™s range of shielded CAT6a now includes:
â€¢ Keystone jacks
â€¢ Keystone couplers
â€¢ Unloaded keystone patch panels
â€¢ Solid conductor cable
â€¢ Patch leads
The Hypertec shielded CAT6a Jack is a toolless jack featuring a keystone foot print, making it compatible with keystone patch panels.
Bezels are also available, making these jacks compatible with Clipsal & HPM style face plates.
The Hypertec shielded unloaded patch panel features an all metal body and comes with a ground wire kit, to quickly and easily ground the patch panel.
The all metal body ensures contact with the jackâ€™s metal body and results in shield continuity.
Hypertec Shielded CAT6a Patch Lead cables feature double shielding where individual twisted pairs are foil shielded, before a final braided wire shield is wrapped
around the complete cable bundle. All these shields are connected to the metal frame, which is an integral component of the Hypertec RJ connector.
