April 30, 2009--Ortronics/Legrand's shielded keystone jack patch panels are designed to provide Cat 6A/10G performance, feature a cast-encased rear loading shielded jack, and incorporate a tool-less termination process.

Rear loading jacks can be terminated without the need of special tools. A wire lacing feature maintains pair geometry and limits untwisting of pairs, and includes a wiring diagram. By closing the jack housing fully, the lacing cap is seated onto the jack insulation displacement contacts (IDCs), terminating all four cable pairs at the same time. The IDCs support termination of 22 to 24 AWG solid conductors.

The die cast metal construction creates an integral shield and provides 360 degree coverage, while a supplied cable clamp enables secure and shield/ground wire connections.

These shielded patch panels are available in flat and angled configurations, with 24 or 48 ports. Shielded keystone jacks are grounded to the patch panels through the body of the jack once they are snapped into the back of the panel and require no additional individual grounding. Panels are supplied with a matching number of reusable keystone FTP jacks, rear cable management, and grounding wire lugs that provide the grounding point for attaching the panel to the cabling system ground bus.

The RoHS-compliant panels feature universal T568A/B wiring and support preferred termination practices.
