Signamax® High Density Modular UTP Patch Panels

High Performance Cat 5e and Cat 6 Connectivity



What's special about these copper patching systems?

  • Provides up to 48 ports of interconnectivity between your network components and structural Ethernet wiring, delivering high speed data transmission to each of your devices
  • Low corrosion, gold-plated phosphor bronze alloy over nickel conductors efficiently transmit electrical signals for the smoothest performance
  • Uses only 1U-2U of space for high density connectivity that uses up very little room in your rack or enclosure
  • Jacks are rated to handle a minimum of 750 plug insertions, accommodating even the most dynamic networks though many changes
  • Click for More Features

These Cat5e and Cat6 high-density Signamax® patch panels provide an efficient and durable solution for bringing Ethernet connectivity to up to 48 devices. These rugged interconnects exceed ANSI/TIA-568-C.2 requirements for Cat5e and Cat6 data transmission performance, and their 1.6 mm carbon steel and flame-retardant housings and will not be engulfed in the event of a fire.
