Leviton Introduces Category 6A Cable with Reduced Diameter

Leviton Manufacturing Company
New LM-RDT™ offers one of the smallest outside diameters available

Bothell, Washington, January 04, 2022 – Leviton today announced a new Category 6A cable called LM-RDT™. This UTP plenum cable features an outside diameter (OD) of only 0.230 inches, making it ideal for cable upgrades, retrofit applications, or areas where space is at a premium.

LM-RDT – short for Leviton Manufacturing Reduced Diameter Technology – achieves a smaller OD by eliminating the cable cross-filler while maintaining Category 6A performance through Leviton Precision Twist Technology. This proprietary technology precisely controls the cable's twist, enabling Category 6A performance in a much smaller form factor. LM-RDT also incorporates new Leviton FLX-1™ advanced polymer technology into the plenum-rated cable jacket for greater flexibility and easier routing through cable pathways.

"LM-RDT is one of the most innovative Category 6A cables we have ever developed," stated Todd Harpel, senior director of global copper cables at Berk-Tek, a Leviton Company. "Our Precision Twist Technology allows us to eliminate the cable cross-filler, resulting in a solution that is smaller, lighter and easier to install, as it reduces termination time and jobsite waste. In addition, FLX-1 technology all but eliminates cable memory, simplifying cable pulls and installation."

Leviton Network Solutions acquired Berk-Tek in September 2020, and LM-RDT is another example of the technical teams working together to develop breakthrough cabling technology as a full system supplier. The new cable follows the jointly developed LANmark™-SST cable, which offers premier performance in a Cat 6A cable.

The LM-RDT cable is part of two new Leviton end-to-end systems: the high-performance Atlas-X1® LM-RDT System, and the economical eXtreme® LM-RDT System. Both systems are designed to accommodate high-bandwidth applications where pathway space is at a premium.

LM-RDT Cat 6A UTP plenum cable is available today from Leviton's extensive distribution network. For more information about the new cable, please visit Leviton.com/RDT or contact your local Leviton sales representative.
