TE Connectivity (TE), a world leader in connectivity and sensors, offers its Raychem Cat 6a cable to help meet the demands of harsh environment military and aerospace applications. The ruggedized cable design delivers 10Gb/s of high speed data transmission which meets or exceeds cat6a electrical requirements with sufficient margin.

TE’s Raychem Cat 6a cable is designed for a variety commercial and military applications, including in-flight entertainment systems, flight control, avionics, cabin management systems and military ground vehicles. It’s constructed with engineered fluoropolymers able to support ANSI/TIA-568-C specifications for stable performance in extreme conditions over long lengths. TE’s manufacturing process and engineered fluropolymer materials enable this cable to be made in 26 AWG aimed to save size and weight.

“Our expansive research and development programs in material sciences are continually creating robust high-speed data cables to help meet the demands of modern aerospace, marine, and ground systems,” said Juan Contreras, product manager of global aerospace, defense & marine at TE Connectivity.

The Cat 6a cable is compatible with most high-speed connectors (38999, ARINC) as well as TE’s CeeLok FAS-T and CeeLok FAS-X connectors. It is available in two wire gauges: the industry standard 24 AWG and a smaller 26 AWG for size and weight critical applications
