What is an Atlas-X1 Connector?

Leviton’s premium category-rated system delivers the highest level of verified performance and reliability, offers tool-free termination for simplified installations, and is easily scalable for migrations up to 40GBASE-T. Atlas-X1 is ideal for deployment in all types of mission-critical networks and capable of supporting Power over Ethernet (PoE) up to 100 watts.

The Atlas-X1 is the industry's first connector to support shielded applications from Category 8 to 5e and UTP applications from Category 6A to 5e, all from one unified form factor.

Leviton Premium Copper Systems Atlas-X1

Product Overview

Ideal for deployment in mission-critical networks, Atlas-X1 delivers the highest level of verified performance and reliability, offers tool-free termination for simplified installations and is easily scalable for network migration up to 40GBASE-T.

Quality Standards

"The Atlas-X1 is designed and manufactured in the United States to ensure the highest levels of performance and reliability," said Grayling Love, Leviton's Senior Product Manager of Copper Systems. "It provides exceptional headroom above the TIA standard in both short- and long-channels, and offers the greatest number of features for today’s demanding networks."

Atlas-X1 connectors are independently tested and guaranteed across all category ratings to exceed component, permanent link and channel margins, delivering performance above the ANSI/TIA-568-C.2 and ISO/IEC 11801 requirements. Additionally, pre-production Atlas-X1 Cat 8 connectors are third-party tested and confirmed to meet the current draft 2.0E of the TIA-568-C.2-1 Category 8 proposed standard (Oct. 2014). The pending standard defines performance and testing requirements up to 2 GHz for Category 8 cabling systems to support the operation of IEEE 802.3bq 40GBASE-T applications up to 30 meters. Atlas-X1 Cat 8 shielded connectors will be available upon standard ratification.
