The feed-through patch panels newly available from Cablesys have RJ45 ports on both sides and, the company says, “are ideal for existing data centers which require additional patching.” Each panel fits 24 ports in 1 rack unit. “The feed-through patch panels are less messy than traditional punchdown patch panels,” Cablesys adds. The panels are available in Category 5e, Category 6 and Category 6A configurations. The Category 6A versions are available in unshielded- or screened-twisted-pair options.
All ports are rated to withstand 750 insertions. The company adds, “Panels are made of heavy-duty 16-gauge steel with powder coating. The panel takes up only one rack-mount space on standard 19-inch racks. An extension bracket is available to fit 23-inch cabinets.”
