Our mini Cat6 Ethernet cables are only 28AWG, making the diameter of the cable 3mm! Regular 24AWG are 5.8mm in diameter! This means a remarkable reduction in space used over regular cables.
These small diameter patch cables are designed for large data-center wiring deployments or any other installation where space is at a premium. There are three main benefits to using slim patch cables:
- The reduced surface area provides better airflow leading to reduced temperatures.
- The thinner 28AWG conductors have a smaller bend radius than standard cables, allowing for easier routing in tight spaces.
- Slim patch cables weigh less than standard counterparts, putting less stress on their connectors and patch panel ports, as well as reducing the overall weight of your installation.
