Hitachi Cable America Releases Revolutionary Category 6A Cable Design

Manchester, New Hampshire, USA, April 4, 2019

Hitachi Cable America Inc. (HCA), a leader in the manufacture of high-performance copper and fiber optic communication cables, strives to be at the cutting edge of technology. Hitachi has made this evident through the development and release of its Drybit™ Category 6A indoor/outdoor plenum-rated cable. Drybit cables are the first category cables designed for wet places and plenum spaces. Following the recent release of its Drybit Category 6 cable, Hitachi wanted to expand the Drybit line to include a Category 6A cable. Drybit Category 6A plenum-rated cable offers the same water and chemical resistance as the Drybit Category 6 cable and has enhanced electrical performance necessary to support 10 Gigabit Ethernet. It is also verified to the Category 6A standard by UL. Drybit’s unique dry core allows the building owner to safely bridge two distinct cable environments using one single cable. Drybit cables are UL listed CMP. And, since Drybit cables eliminate the need to physically transition from one cable type to another, they also eliminate the space, materials and costs associated with doing so. Drybit Category 6A is available in shielded and unshielded designs. Drybit cable is made in the USA at HCA’s Manchester, New Hampshire facility.
