L-com's right angle Category 6 Ethernet patch cables have won Product of the Year from TMC's Communications Solutions.

Our right angle technology has resulted in cleaner, neater server racks, easier drop-point connections, and networks that operate faster due to cables maintaining the required category rating. We can now offer a huge variety of choices to engineers...

L-com, Inc., a designer and manufacturer of wired and wireless connectivity products, has followed up on the success of its right angle Ethernet cable assembly lines with a new line of right angle Cat 5e cable assemblies with low-smoke, zero halogen (LSZH) jackets. The new cables are expected to allow the use of right angle networking cables in locations where fire and combustion are a risk, such as ships, airplanes, and military bases and vehicles.

L-com first introduced its right angle RJ45 cable assemblies in 2010 with shielded and unshielded Cat 5e cable lines and unshielded Cat 6 lines. The cables use a patent-pending technology to enable a tight right angle at the connection point without risking untwisting the twisted pairs that allow the cable to pass Category testing. Since then, the cable design has won multiple awards, has spurred tips and videos, and L-com greatly expanded the line to include hundreds of different lengths, connector orientations, and jacket colors. The new products build on these lines by offering similar cables with LSZH jacket materials that will release minimal smoke and no toxic gas if burned in the case of a fire.

"Our right angle technology has resulted in cleaner, neater server racks, easier drop-point connections, and networks that operate faster due to cables maintaining the required category rating," said David Gallagher, Product Manager. "We can now offer a huge variety of choices to engineers and technicians who work in environments with stringent flame/smoke regulations."

As with all of the right angle Ethernet cables, L-com plans to stock the new LSZH cables in-house for same-day shipment against orders. In addition to the right angle feature, these cables use 24 AWG stranded conductors for flexibility, and are available in fifteen standard lengths ranging from 1 foot to 100 feet, and three standard colors. Detailed engineering drawings and 3D CAD models are available on L-com's website.
