Black Box is offering a free sample of its new Slim-Net™ 28-AWG patch cables.

This new line of CAT6 and CAT6A patch cables with thin 28-AWG stranded copper conductors can be used in AV, multimedia, and PoE applications. With a diameter nearly half the size of 24-AWG cables (.161” or 4.1 mm), Slim-Net cables offer improved flexibility over traditional patch cables.

As a special introductory offer, the company is also running a limited-time promotion through August 31: Buy 40 Cables, Get 10 Free.

Slim-Net cables offer significant benefits for high-density broadcast rooms and data centers.

One of the primary benefits is improved airflow to equipment due to increased space between the patched cables. In addition, Slim-Net cables greatly improve handling making it easier to patch cables; perform moves, adds, and changes; and to identify port assignments.

Because the cables are so much thinner than traditional cables, users can save space in racks as well as cable pathways and managers. The flexibility of the cables also improves cable routing and management. The number of horizontal cable managers can be reduced or eliminated completely.

“These cables are designed to free up space in crowded racks,” says Ryan Hopkins, Cable Product Manager at Black Box. “Users can be assured of premium network performance. We test the cables against all standards and guarantee them for life.”

The Black Box cables meet or exceed all TIA 568-C.2 performance requirements and come with a lifetime warranty. Extensive specifications are available at

The Slim-Net 28-AWG CAT6 and CAT6A cables are available in seven lengths and seven colors.
