    Straight Through Cable

    A straight through cable, also known as a patch cable, is the most common type of network cable used in industry today. They are used in the local area network or LAN to connect different devices together such as computers to hubs or routers. These cables are terminated with an RJ45 connector at each and are wired in accordance with TIA/EIA standards.

    RS offer a comprehensive range of high-quality cables from industry-leading brands including Harting, Brand-Rex, Molex, Belden and of course RS PRO. Choose from shielded or unshielded cables with LAN categories Cat5, Cat5e and Cat6a.
