Properties of individual system components

PreCONNECT® COPPER ToR – Generation 2 is the re-design of our factory assembled copper data cable trunks optimized for „top-of-the-rack“ „plug-and-play“ installations in data centers.

PreCONNECT® COPPER ToR G2 Trunks are the consistent further development of our successful PreCONNECT® COPPER Standard Trunks, fulfilling the requirement to have thin and flexible cables for „top-of-the-rack“ cabling. 

Particular suitability for „top-of-the-rack“ through the use of innovative thin, flexible Cat.7 copper data cables with 23 foil-screened AWG23/1 solid wire pairs below an overall copper braid, with a FRNC-LSZH cable jacket.

The thin and flexible cables are offering their advantages at raised-floor installations too, their much lower volume interferes the flow of the cooling-air less and they do not fill the cable-trays and the raised-floor that much. By laying the cables within equipment racks, the cables can be routed in a manner to not interfere the flow of the cooling-air at the equipment coolingfan´s inlet and outlet sides, because of its higher flexibility and its thin diameter. So the cable itself helps your equipment cooling optimization. Last but not least the fire load of the cable of our PreCONNECT® COPPER ToR G2 Trunks is much lower than of our PreCONNECT® COPPER Standard Trunks.

Cable types:

  • 6-channel S/FTP Cat.7, solid wire foil-screened pairs, below overall copper braid, FRNC-LSZH cable jacket, color aqua
  • Selectively six 4x2xAWG23/1 or six 4x2xAWG26/1
  • CPR class: AWG23/1 selectively B2ca and Dca, AWG26/1 = Dca
  • Diameter: AWG23/1 B2ca = 18.2mm, AWG23/1 Dca = 18mm, AWG26/1 = 13.9mm

RJ45 jack module:

Both sides factory assembled with each six shielded Cat.6A ISO/IEC RJ45 Keystone jack modules, fanout legs protected with overall copper braids.


PreCONNECT® COPPER ToR – Generation 2

The PreCONNECT® COPPER ToR G2 Trunks are fulfilling the specifications of permanent link 10GBASE-T class EA:

- AWG23/1 up to 90m
- AWG26/1 up to 60m, instead of the standardized 90m

The legs of the RJ45 jacks are protected with overall copper braids, to guarantee the shielding and grounding of the entire Trunk. The length of the legs with RJ45 jacks are matched to the to the corresponding 19“ panels.

PreCONNECT® COPPER ToR-G2 trunks are delivered in our well known factory assembled high PreCONNECT® quality and „plug-and-play“ functionality and 100% factory measured of course. You merely must lay the cable and snap the RJ45 jacks into the 19” panels.

Polarity: 1:1   TIA 568 A
PoE: AWG23/1 and AWG26/1 applicable for PoE+
NVP for lenghts measurement: AWG23/1 and AWG26/1 = 76%
Length definition: Order-length = length between the RJ45 jacks at both sides

Maximum order-lengths = maximum 10GBASE-T permanent link length:
-    AWG23/1 = 90m
-    AWG26/1 = 60m

Delivery form: As cable ring in cardboard-box with measurement protocol
