Signamax™ Category 5 Telco Patch Panels

Fast Ethernet Modular Patch Panels with Telco-Style Termination


What's special about these Cat5 patch panels?

  • Highly versatile 24 or 48-port patch panels with RJ-45 connectors are wired to 50-position Telco-style connectors to provide excellent flexibility for multiple port premise connectivity
  • Easy-to-terminate design greatly reduces labor costs by taking a fraction of the time to wire, thanks to the fact that you don't need to individually terminate each keystone jack
  • Connectors are prewired to Telco 25-pair standard pin configuration, and are available in either male or female styles to accommodate preexisting network requirements
