Laird Intros 10Gig CAT6A Cables for HDBaseT Applications

Laird Digital Cinema has introduced two high performing 10 Gig, Cat6A cable series featuring IP RJ45 connectivity for wired LAN and wireless access points, digital signage, PTZ security cameras, audio consoles and more.

The Laird CAT6A-REV cable assemblies feature Belden’s REVConnect system to enable easy connector modification in the field. The cable assembly is riser-rated and PoE ready for devices requiring power up to 100W and features a small bend radius for tight spaces. With superior crosstalk isolation and EMI suppression, Laird LD-REV6A cables are ideal for networking and HDBaseT applications with Category 5e, Category 6 and Category 6A RJ45 connections.

The Laird TUFFCAT6A-E series with 10G tactical network cable includes two different configurations, the EC model which terminates in RJ45 etherCON to RJ45 etherCON connectors and the EP assemblies which terminate in etherCON RJ45 to ProShell RJ45. The ruggedized CAT6A tactical cable is extra-flexible with a TPE jacket that withstands temperature extremes. The durable, locking connector system exceeds 10-Gig performance standards and is intermateable with existing etherCON CAT5. Laird TUFFCAT6A cables are designed for HDBaseT and UHD-4K video transmission in punishing environments such as live events and OB trucks.
