High speed copper systemsThe TE Connectivity XG Copper solutions provide a robust and reliable infrastructure for 10GBASE-T as described in IEEE 802.3an. The cabling systems provide extended margins to the stringent requirements of ISO/IEC 11801 Edition 2.1, which ensures compliance, even in environments not optimized for high speed applications.
The XG Copper solution is based on a shielded 4 pair system, including all relevant components, to build any implementation as described in the cabling standards. Handling of screens and assurance of continuity are ensured by the patented pressure cable screen clamp which guarantee an optimized connection between cable and connector screen, regardless of which cable is used. TE Connectivity 4 point screen connection in the RJ45 connection ensures optimized connections between plug and jack. Together care has been taken to optimize the protective layer of screens throughout the complete installation, providing the end-user with the highest performance of any 10GBASE-T compliant system.
AMP TWIST XG connectors are designed in the SL format used widely for all TE Connectivity connectors. Termination is carried out with the patented quick termination technology AWC, which provides the fastest termination of a screened connector within the industry.
