Premium Performance 

Black Box GigaBase 3 Premium CAT5e Patch Cables feature a secure, lockable design. Tested to 350-MHz and 1-Gbps performance, these cables exceed the 100-MHz CAT5e specification, greatly reducing impedance, structural return loss and near-end crosstalk (NEXT). A robust four-pair 24-AWG construction features 50-micron gold-plated contacts for superior conductivity.

These cables have connectors designed for an insertion and extraction life of 750 cycles, making for an ultra-reliable solution that you can count on to perform. The rugged, hard-polymer LockPORT boot and plug are integrated to provide increased strength in comparison to standard connectors.

Locking Options Available

These cables allow you to lock down critical network ports when required – without buying new patch cords. Secure your network ports by inserting a locking pin (sold separately) into the built-in locking tab on the patented snagless boot. To unplug the cable, release it with the removal key (sold separately). 

Locked: Red Pin

Prevent unauthorized access to mission-critical and publicly accessible ports in government offices, lobbies, retail establishments and more. To lock a port, insert the red locking pin into the patented LockPORT boot on the cable. Unlock the port with the LockPORT Locking Pin Removal Tool.

Secured: Green Pin

Prevent accidental disconnects in the office, manufacturing and industrial applications and more. To secure a port, insert the green locking pin into the cable’s LockPORT boot. To release the pin, squeeze its butterfly tabs and pull – no removal tool required.
