The new AMP-TWIST 7AS SL connector from the AMP Netconnect Business Unit of Tyco Electronics combines ease of installation with a high-density SlimLine (SL) style, and has been designed to offer premium performance well above the Category 7A Class FA frequency limit of 1000 MHz.
The new connector forms the latest technical evolution of the successful AMP-TWIST connector technology, and provides excellent shielding and screening performance together with optimised quadrant design to allow a connector performance tested up to 1500 MHz on all pairs.
The high bandwidth offered by the new connector closes the gap between the connector performance and that of the best PiMF cable performance, resulting in a system operating frequency which is twice as high as the Category 7A frequency limit.
This extra system bandwidth means that the connector will function reliably in demanding applications such as CATV, with an upper frequency requirement of 862 MHz, broadband video and high-speed data distribution. In addition, it offers powerful multimedia capabilities even when several services are shared within a single cable sheath.
