Belden Releases Traceable Patch Cords with Unique Features

ST. LOUIS--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Belden Inc., a global leader in signal transmission solutions for mission-critical applications, releases traceable Bonded-Pair patch cords to meet the ever growing need to quickly and easily identify and trace network connections in today's high-density and mission-critical infrastructure environments.

"Finding patch cord connections within densely populated patching areas is a challenge that is overcome by deploying Belden's traceable Bonded-Pair patch cords," states Product Line Manager Benoit Chevarie. "Belden's cords feature an integrated, and exceptionally bright, LED light that enables easy identification of where the cord is connected."

The LED light is activated with a simple press of a button on the low-profile plug, and flashes on both ends of the patch cord. Offered in 10GX (Category 6A) for 10 gigabit applications and CAT6+ for gigabit applications.

Unique features of Belden traceable cords:

  • Exceptionally bright LED with a battery life expectancy of seven years or 1,000 applications (battery is also replaceable)
  • Comes standard with unique serial number and bar code at each end of the cord for use with mobile DCIM systems
  • Made with Belden's patented Bonded-Pair technology to ensure long-term performance through the rigors of multiple moves, adds and changes
  • LED blinks for 20 seconds and can be stopped at any time with a second press of the button

Belden has worked with Cormant Inc. to develop a standard feature that provides each traceable patch cord with a unique serial number and bar code at each end. This code can be scanned using mobile enabled DCIM systems, such as the Cormant-CS DCIM solution, to manage end-to-end connectivity and inventory throughout the enterprise. Because the cords are identified and managed using a barcode they require no additional physical equipment to solve the challenge of enterprise connectivity management; bringing true intelligence to patch management.
