With the Cat.6A EL module R&M makes an evolutionary leap forward in network technology
BENGALURU, India – April 16, 2015 – R&M, Swiss cabling specialist launches new Cat.6A EL Module in India. The Cat. 6A EL module features a newly developed compensation function for optimized signal transmission. The letters EL stand for Easy Lock. Cat. 6A EL plays a vital role in situations where simple and quick installations are required and the permanent link has to deliver high performance conforming to standards.
R&M’s Cat. 6A EL module has two parts: the wire guide and the jack with wiring cover. The jack can be mounted without any special tools. Insulation displacement terminals contact the cables automatically when the cover is closed. An integrated half clamp provides strain relief, securing all types of cable without squeezing them. Cable ties are no longer needed. With shielded cabling solutions (STP), the half clamp establishes the shielding contact at the same time.
Cat. 6A EL module has paved installers with a reliable way to the future and 10 Gigabit Ethernet for their customers. The procedures for wiring and installing the RJ45 module can be carried out quickly. The RJ45 jack enables a local data network to be operated with 10 Gigabit Ethernet, which is 1000 times faster than data traffic, sent via today’s most commonly used 1 Gigabit Ethernet networks. The RJ45 jack fulfills the component specifications according to IEC 60603-7-41/-51. It is suitable for the construction of permanent links and Class EA channels according to ISO/IEC 11801, currently the highest performance level in Twisted Pair copper cabling.
Mr Michel Riva, CEO at R&M says, “Cat. 6A EL is an evolutionary leap forward in copper connectivity technology.The real and most significant step forward, however, lies in the mounting solution.” adds Riva
Cat. 6A EL is compatible with the modular R&M freenet cabling system, R&M security systems and the R&M inteliPhy infrastructure management system. It is robust in connection with other makes of connectors. Cat. 6A EL can be combined with non-R&M ranges for mounting frames, sockets and switches.
Mr Gaurav Ahluwalia, Managing Director at R&M India said, “Installers can wire Cat. 6A EL module in under a minute. In the past it would have taken days to wire a network distributor for structured cabling systems, but, with the Cat. 6A EL, it can be done in a matter of hours. Cat. 6A EL was developed with the aim of significantly simplifying installation in the area that usually takes the most work: connecting the RJ45 modules in high-rise buildings.”
The Cat.6A EL module has been in the market for a few months and is already in global use. The Cat. 6A EL module fulfills all requirements for high-frequency data transmission and for network operation with 10 Gigabit Ethernet, which will be required in the future.
“The new Cat. 6A EL module was a breeze for our staff to install ” reports Project Manager, Mathew Capon from the installation company JCB Communications, Sydney, Australia.
