Siemon, a global network infrastructure specialist, is pleased to announce a new MAX In-Line Coupler panel with RJ45 connections on both the front and rear of the panel for faster deployments and quick duplication of active equipment ports in a variety of applications.
Preassembled with 24 Category 5e or 6 UTP couplers, the MAX In-Line Coupler Panel allows for connecting RJ45 plugs into both sides of the panel. When used with Siemon’s doubled-ended IC solid and MC® stranded modular cords, the coupler panel allows for extremely quick duplication of active equipment ports, which is ideal for emergency situations. The performance of the MAX In-Line Couplers is such that one coupler can be installed per warranted channel along with up to another three non-coupler connectors.
“In highly dynamic environments with constant change or in situations that call for getting active equipment up and running extremely quickly, the ability to plug RJ45 cords into the back of a patch panel eliminates time-consuming punch down of cable,” says Siemon Product Manager Brian McCaffrey. “Popular for temporary installations and disaster recovery, our MAX In-Line Coupler Panel can be deployed without exceeding channel requirements.”
Constructed of lightweight high strength steel with a black finish, the panel features a compact single rack unit design and a removable rear cable management bar that secures cables for proper strain relief.
