RJ45 8P8C UTP/STP Rack-mount Patch Panel
The patch panel is a connecting hardware system (typically rackmounted) that facilities cable termination and cabling administration using patch cords.
One shorter patch cord will plug into the front side, whereas the back holds the connection of a much longer and more permanent cable.
The assembly of hardware is arranged so that a number of circuits, usually of the same or similar type, appear on jacks for monitoring, interconnecting, and testing circuits in a convenient, flexible manner.
Patch panels offer the convenience to allow technicians change quickly to the path of select signals, without the expense of dedicated switching equipment. This was first used by early telephone exchanges, where the telephone switchboard (a massive array of patch panels) and a large room full of telephone operators running it was ubiquitous.
HCI supplies patent designed patch panels in both solutions of Unshielded (UTP) and Shielded (STP), comply with requirements of ANSI/TIA-1096-A (former FCC Part 68) and Level A reliability requirements of IEC 60603-7 for RJ45 8-way connector
Our patch panel family covers performance range from Category 5e (Cat 5e), Category 6 (Cat 6), to Category 6A (Cat 6A), and meets the ANSI/TIA-568-C.2, ISO/IEC 11801 Ed. 2.2 and CENELEC EN 50173-1 cabling standard.
HCI offers patch panels in both Component (Certified Connecting Hardware) Level, and Channel / Perm. Link Level as well to maximize customer's choices in different project scenario.
