Copper Patch Cords

Sentinel Connectors was the first company to be issued a UL 3992 certification, verifying the performance of our patch cords. These cables were evaluated in accordance with UL 3992 to meet the industry standard for physical, electrical and transmission performance of data communication cables.

The certification program revolves around a comprehensive test and evaluation of electrical, mechanical, materials and cable assembly aspects of patch cord. Choosing a certified UL 3992 will help you source the proper patch cord for your network needs.
