Leviton high-flex HD6 patch cords are designed to be used in 1 gigabit applications for all frequencies from 1 to 250 MHz, where CAT 6 patch cords are commonly utilized. The patch cords offer flexible, high-density patching. The cables support high-speed data applications. They reduce patch cord density in a 24-port patch panel by 38% when compared to typical CAT 6 patch cords. Patch cords shall provide 1 gigabit application performance for cross connecting in systems comprising of equipment, cable and appropriate connectors. The patch cords shall be 28-gauge, unshielded, twisted pair, stranded conductor construction with a standard 8-position modular plug on both ends. Plug contacts shall be plated with minimum of 50 micrometer of gold. Patch cords shall have an outer diameter of 0.15 inch.
