Pre-terminated Copper Harness Cable

Part Code: 17C5E-XX


Pre-terminated copper trunk cables provide a quick plug-and-play solution for links between switches, servers, patch panels, and zone distribution areas in the data center. With the right upfront planning and coordination, these trunks can offer major benefits over terminating twisted-pair cable in the field. Copper trunks are typically comprised of bundles of 6, 12, or 24 and factory terminated with jacks and plugs. There are various pre-terminated copper trunk cables available in cat5e, cat6 and cat6a UTP and STP cable construction with different termination types, such as jack to jack, jack to plug, plug to plug, etc. on the market. The picture below shows a jack to jack cat5e UTP pre-terminated copper trunk cable.

Key Features

  • High-performance Cat6A, Cat6, Cat5e pre-terminated patch cables with professional grade keystone jacks that are designed to greatly reduce installation time
  • Keystone jacks are compatible with 3C3® unloaded patch panels
  • Available in unshielded and shielded twisted pair cable assemblies, with either jack-to-jack or jack- to-RJ45 connector configurations to accommodate almost any custom application.
