L-com's New Shielded LSZH Right Angle Category 5E Cable Assemblies Provide Additional EMI Protection


L-com's latest right angle Ethernet cable innovation uses low-smoke, zero halogen jackets over an aluminum/polyester jacket to combine EMI/RFI protection with flammability properties to meet the needs of military/aerospace and other fire-risk applications. These new cables feature the same patent-pending technology that allows a tight, right angle at the connection point without compromising the Category 5e rating.

North Andover, MA (PRWEB) June 07, 2013

L-com, Inc., a designer and manufacturer of wired and wireless connectivity products, has continued releasing new right angle Ethernet cable assembly lines with its new shielded right angle Cat 5e cable assemblies with low-smoke, zero halogen (LSZH) jackets. The new cables are expected to provide additional electro-magnetic interference (EMI) and radio frequency interference (RFI) protection while allowing 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 just released its unshielded LSZH right angle Cat 5e cables weeks ago. 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 L-com introduced the technology in 2010, it has won multiple awards and L-com has greatly expanded the offering to include hundreds of different lengths, connector orientations, and jacket colors. These new products are cables with LSZH jacket materials over an aluminum/polyester shield terminated at the connectors for maximum EMI/RFI resistance.

"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."

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.
