Belden’s New REVConnect System Goes Platinum

REVConnect Wins Platinum Award in Cabling Installation & Maintenance 2016 Innovators Awards Program

ST. LOUIS--()--Belden Inc., a global leader in signal transmission solutions for mission-critical applications, is pleased to announce that its newly launched REVConnect system was recognized at the Platinum level, the highest award, by the judges of the annual Cabling Installation & Maintenance Innovators Awards program. The judging panel consisted of cabling and communications system specifiers, designers, integrators and managers with vast professional experience.

This award recognizes superb innovation, characterized by a groundbreaking approach to meeting a need, and/or a new level of performance, efficiency, ease of use or other beneficial quality.

The mandate that was given to our Engineering teams in Montreal, Canada and Gjern, Denmark was to design a new Category 6A termination process that would improve deployment productivity while maintaining the excellent performance we designed in our 10GXS cables. The development team started with a clean slate, incorporated a lot of customer feedback and came up with a complete new connectivity system that addresses current and future networking applications.

The “R-E-V” in REVConnect stands for a connector that is Reliable, Easy to Use and Versatile. Featuring unique core technology, an installer only needs to learn one process, have one tool and use one set of core components to perform any connectorization from Category 5e to Category 6A jacks, shielded or unshielded and even Category 6A field-mountable plugs. One core termination is compatible with eight different connectors. Its performance meets and exceeds all industry standards, including ANSI/TIA-568-C.2, ISO/IEC 11801 (Classes D through EA) and IEEE 802.3 2012.

“With the introduction of the new REVConnect system, Belden is leading the industry in the last stage of Category 6A connector development,” says Benoit Chevarie, Product Line Manager for Belden Copper Systems. “This time, not only did we address ease installation and the reliability of the termination but we did it for all jacks and plugs which will greatly contribute to an increase in productivity.”
