L-com Global Connectivity has launched a new series of mini-coupler feed-thru patch panels for use with data center, LAN, MDF/IDF, and Gigabit Ethernet connectivity applications.

Per the company, "the mini-couplers used in these panels provide the same performance and quality as full-size Ethernet couplers, but measure less than one inch in length. This design provides more room for installers to work, improves air flow and reduces stress on cable exits, ensuring that the mating assembly's bend radius is not exceeded. Additionally, they are shorter and lighter than standard couplers which maximizes usable space behind the panel."

Twenty-eight new mini-coupler feed-thru panels are available from L-com in three categories: 1U and 2U keystone feed-thru 19-inch panels; 1U and 2U keystone ECF flange-mounted 19-inch panels; and 2 and 4-port universal sub-panels for use with the company's UPR35-6B universal master rack panel. Each panel type is offered with both Category 5e and Category 6 ratings and in shielded and unshielded versions, depending on the model. The panels are constructed of 16-gauge cold-rolled steel for strength and have a black powder coat finish for durability. Each port is screened and numbered to simplify cable organization and tracking.

"Our new mini-coupler feed-thru panels offer a space saving design that is required by many of our customers. Unlike conventional couplers, the mini-couplers used in these panels measure less one inch, providing a low-profile solution. Additionally, you can build your own custom rack panel using our wide assortment of USP-style sub-panels," comments Manuel Martinez, product manager at L-com. The new mini-coupler feed-thru panels are in stock and available for immediate shipment from the company. Learn more.
