What is an Armored Patch Cable?

Patch cables are critical to the operation of electronic and optical equipment, and can allow system performance to operate at the intended high speeds and bandwidth.

A patch cable connects two electronic or optical devices to each other for signal routing. This is usually for network applications, to “patch” a signal from one hub, switch, or router to another hub, switch, or router. Use patch cables to carry a variety of signals, such as:

  • telephone
  • audio
  • video
  • digital signals for networked and non-networked applications

Armored patch cables are designed to resist outdoor conditions and protect connectivity and the cabling infrastructure from rodents, moisture UV resistant and corrosion. The stainless-steel armored jacket is flexible and allows the cable to run through tight spaces where access is limited.
