Oncore Cables Introduces ClearFit Line of Cat 6 Patch Cables
Ultra Slim, Snagless and Flexible Design Make ClearFit the Perfect Choice for Tight Data Center and Patch Panel Installations
IRVINE, California—October 14, 2010— Oncore Cables, LLC, an Irvine California-based company, today released its ClearFit line of Cat 6 patch cable products. The ClearFit line is optimized for the small space traditionally afforded by patch panels and tight network closets.
Oncore’s first design goal was to reduce the diameter of the cable itself. The average girth of a Cat 6 cable is about 6 to 6.5mm, but ClearFit cables are just 4.75mm. The overall effect is that ClearFit cables take up less physical space in a network room, and they’re easier to flex and move around, as well.
The connectors of ClearFit cables are low-profile, which cuts down on the space each end takes up in switches and panels. This makes it much easier for installers to insert and remove cables in a panel with closely spaced ports. And the ClearFit’s snagless connector design makes long cable pulls smooth and easy.
The biggest selling point for ClearFit cables, however, is the level of customization available to customers. “We can do any custom length,” says Brian Richardson, executive vice president of Oncore. If [customers] want 27-footers, we can get them 27-footers.”
The logic behind customized lengths is simple: Different situations call for different lengths of cable, and having extra slack can be a pain for IT workers. Richardson notes that many manufacturers only offer a few set cable lengths—3, 5, 7, 10, 15, 25, and 50 feet, for example. “If you’ve got anything between 25 and 50 [feet], you’re going to have a lot of slack, especially if you need 29 or 30 [feet].”
ClearFit cables are available in 15 different colors with options for custom branding, which adds another level of customization to the cables. Customers can color-code their network closets, use sequential labels, and perform other organizational tasks by taking advantage of the cables’ customization options.
The ClearFit line is also available in Cat 5e and Cat 6a options. Both share the same ultra-flexible cable with the snagless ClearFit connectors. And the ClearFit line of patch cables are TIA/BIA compliant.
As for how fast your custom order makes it out of Oncore’s facility, Richardson says that almost all orders are on their way to the customer in one to two days.
