Siemon | LockIT™ Patch Cords

Siemon has launched their new LockIT™ Category 6 and Category 6A patch cords that have been designed to prevent unintended or unauthorised disconnections in a network.

The new cords are ideal for preventing disconnection of devices such as security cameras, point-of-sale terminals, self-service kiosks, digital displays and other devices in publicly accessible spaces like schools, retail stores, transportation hubs, hospitality venues and hospitals.

LockIT cords are also suited for protecting mission-critical network connections within data centres and telecommunications spaces. They are offered in both 26 and 28 AWG constructions, with 28 AWG offering a smaller diameter for better airflow and increased flexibility in high-density patching areas.
