Belden 3600 Pre-Terminated "Green" Cabling System Reduces Installation Time and Costs, Provides Reliable Category 6 Performance

Richmond, IN (PressExposure) September 22, 2009 -- Belden (NYSE: BDC), a world leader in the development of signal transmission products for the enterprise, industrial, building management, broadcast, and security markets, introduces the new Belden 3600 Pre-Terminated Cabling System. Belden’s eco-friendly Pre-Term Made Easy™ cabling solution delivers robust and reliable Category 6 performance, making it ideal for installation in data centers and office environments.

The 3600 Pre-Terminated Cabling System is easy and convenient to configure and install − it can reduce installation time and labor costs by as much as 90 percent. Since all system components are factory-tested, there is no need for the extensive testing and troubleshooting typically required in cabling installations. In addition, this “green” system provides for plug-and-play installation and component reusability, resulting in lower cost and less waste. The system is fully supported under Belden’s IBDN 3600 Certification Program, including guaranteed bandwidth of 280 MHz and Belden’s 25-Year IBDN Product Warranty.

At the heart of Belden’s 3600 Pre-Terminated Cabling System are the following core components:

- 3600 Pre-Terminated Cable Assemblies - small, flexible cable assembly design, combined with RJ45 plugs, allows for fast, easy installation and termination. The use of a braided sleeve and pulling eyes provides additional protection when pulling and routing the assemblies through overhead trays, raised floors, cabinet poke-throughs and cable management hardware.

The cable assemblies come in standardized 6-cable bundles. Each 23 AWG 4-pair cable features Belden’s patented Bonded-Pair technology to ensure Category 6 performance and reliability, before and after installation. The assemblies are available in 1-ft increments from 6-50 ft assembly lengths, and in 5-ft increments from 55 to 295 ft assembly lengths. Each is labeled with a unique serial number and bar code for easier asset management.

- CAT6+ RJ45 Modular Couplers - the inherent simplicity of this RJ45-RJ45 feed-through coupler (or inline coupler) brings modularity and flexibility to the 3600 System, along with a new and higher level of RJ45 plug-and-play performance. The Coupler also provides outstanding transmission performance in short and long channels and it is reusable and reconfigurable for both front and back patch panel reconfiguration. And since the Coupler is compatible with Belden’s full line of KeyConnect™ modular patch panels, adapters and faceplates there is no need for special installation hardware.

Also Available - New KeyConnect Modular Jack Colors Belden has also announced that its KeyConnect 10GX, CAT6+ and CAT5E Modular Jacks are now available in 17 colors. Traditionally these jacks were available in TIA 606 matching colors as well as Gray, White, Almond and Black. The new colors include Ivory, and darker versions of Orange, Red, Yellow, Green, Blue and Purple. Belden KeyConnect Jacks can be used in Belden’s 10GX, KeyConnect and AngleFlex™ Patch Panels, as well as Belden KeyConnect and MediaFlex Workstation Outlets.
