PowerCat 6A UTP CMP/CMR Cable


Part No: CAA-00449P-XX, CAA-00450R-XX

Region: americas

PowerCat 6A UTP cable is capable of supporting 10GBASE-T applications and features an innovative noise-canceling aluminum/polyester isolation wrap surrounding the core that delivers excellent alien crosstalk (AXT) performance.

The product features a low outside diameter of 0.275” (Plenum) 0.25” (Riser), allowing for easier, more efficient installation and cable management. This also improves density and cooling. PowerCat 6A U/UTP cable is third party verified by ETL for Category 6A component compliance and is ideal for PoE applications requiring higher levels of current and is an excellent choice for high-bandwidth, mission-critical applications and wireless access points.

- For new installations of PoE Type 3 / Class 5 and above that wish to be eligible for the Molex 25 year Application Assurance Warranty, we require Category 6A cable to be used throughout.
- To confirm your PoE / RP3 cabling design is eligible for the Molex 25 year Application Assurance Warranty, your design must be verified and validated with the Molex PoE Calculator. Read more at https://www.molexces.com/poe-calculator
- Molex recommends that the PoE feature on an individual switch port is power disabled prior to unplugging the associated powered Device.
- Molex recommends that the full range of PowerCat 6A products be used in a system to maximize cabling and PoE performance.
