June 15, 2023 Kordz Debuts 28AWG Cat6 and Cat6A Cable to Streamline Installation and Assure Fast, Reliable Connectivity

Released March 30, 2023

Half the size of ordinary Cat6A and Cat6 cable and PoE++ compliant, Kordz’ new PRS and PRO SlimCat™ Network Cable Systems combine powerful performance with installation ease. 

Kordz is spearheading the next evolution of Category 6A network cabling design and installation with the launch of a new professional, high-performance solution, PRS SlimCat™ Network Cable System. An extension of its multi-award-winning PRO SlimCat™ Network Cable System introduced earlier this year, the PRS SlimCat™ Network Cable features shielding to meet Cat6A specifications, is remarkably robust, thin and flexible, and supports data rates of 10Gbps up to 50 meters. Combined with POE++ compatibility at 100W, this end-to-end Cat6A-rated solution enables systems integrators to deliver consistent, reliable network connectivity for a wide range of commercial customers with demanding bandwidth requirements. Kordz exhibits its revolutionary PRS and PRO SlimCat™ network cable families at the Future Ready Solutions booth #3454 at InfoComm 2023. 

In addition to supporting high-performance networking for bandwidth-intensive applications, the PRS SlimCat™ Cat6A Network Cable and matching Cat6A Shielded RJ45 Crimp Connectors and Cat6A Shielded Keystone RJ45 Sockets offer unprecedented space-saving advantages in dense rack installations and challenging retrofit applications. Dramatically less bulky and rigid than traditional 23AWG and 24AWG cable, the new 28AWG PRS SlimCat™ Cat6A cable helps integrators complete jobs quickly, confidently and profitably, with the assurance that the job is done right the first time. Like all Kordz products, each component of the PRS SlimCat™ Cat6A Network Cable System has been meticulously tested during each phase of production for quality assurance, comes with a lifetime warranty, and complies with both EU and US fire rating standards. All components are bundled in clearly labeled, integrator-friendly packaging. 

For projects that do not require shielded cable, Kordz offers its award-winning Cat6-rated, PoE ++ compatible PRO SlimCat™ Network Cable System. It boasts the same robust-yet-thin, flexible design, matching connectors, quality assurance and warranties as the PRS SlimCat™ Network Cable System but supports data rates of 1Gbps up to 50 meters.  

“Both our PRS SlimCat™ and PRO SlimCat™ systems were developed to minimize the complications integrators often encounter when installing networks, especially in high-density and retrofit situations, but without any compromise in performance,” says James Chen, Kordz Managing Director. “This unique combination of performance and installation ease fills a very important void in the commercial integration marketplace. We want to make integrators’ jobs easier and provide customers with the trouble-free network experiences they expect. Whether you need a high-performance, high-bandwidth solution like PRS SlimCat™ or a system to support more modest networking needs like PRO SlimCat™, Kordz has the right system for a wide variety of commercial environments.”   

It appears as if the integration community agrees. At Integration Systems Europe (ISE) in February, Kordz recently picked up two prestigious industry awards, the TNT (Top New Technology) award from CE Pro and Best of Show honors from Sound & Video Contractor.
