The newly introduced Procyon copper panel from OCC is designed to be interchangeable with fiber panels, and for high-density copper connectivity. Each copper module provides 48 Category 6A shielded ports in a single rack unit. The copper panel mates with 12 preterminated high-density copper cable assemblies (mated connections shown below), with each assembly providing cabling for four RJ45 ports. OCC says its rugged, shielded assembly allows for quick installation of high-speed copper interconnects.
The panel was designed with shielded and unshielded cabling in mind, OCC explains, and is compatible with UTP, F/UTP and S/FTP cables in Category 5e, Category 6, Category 6A and Category 7A configurations. The panel slides forward for easy access to the patching field. It features integrated equipment/patch-cord and rear cable-management features.
