Leviton has released two new universal panels for its e2XHD Snap-In Cassette Patching System. The flat and angled 1RU panels support fiber, UTP, and now shielded Category 8 connectivity.

“Enterprise and data center IT organizations require network infrastructure that protects their data flow, yet allows easy cable routing and simple moves, adds, and changes. IT managers want better protection for their mission-critical applications with shielded connectivity that still allows fast deployment and simple maintenance,” comments Mark Dearing, Leviton senior product manager. Dearing adds, “The e2XHD universal panels allow for a complete mix-and-match of Leviton fiber, shielded, and UTP snap-in cassettes. These panels include the added option of using high-performing Atlas-X1 shielded components, including Cat 8, to protect networks from electromagnetic and radio frequency interference (EMI/RFI).”

The e2XHD Snap-In Cassette Patching System includes 1RU high-density universal flat and angled patch panels, copper and fiber snap-in cassettes, and accessories for additional cable protection and management. The e2XHD cassettes quickly snap in and pull out of the panels for easy installation and maintenance. Copper cassettes are available empty for field termination, or can be pre-terminated with UTP or shielded connectors for quick deployment. Panels also accommodate Atlas-X1 shielded Cat 8 pre-terminated trunks. Fiber cassettes are pre-terminated for fast deployment and assured high performance.

The system's high-density 1RU panels support 48 copper ports. Leviton's Fiber MTP cassettes provide a simple migration path to 40 Gb/s or 100 Gb/s networks, are pre-terminated, and are available in 12 or 24 fibers, OM3, OM4, OM4+ or single-mode.

The e2XHD copper cassettes are available empty for field termination, or can be pre-terminated with UTP or shielded copper connectors, including Cat 8, for quick deployment. Pre-terminated solutions ship directly from Leviton’s Chicago or Glenrothes (UK) factories for fast global service. Leviton's Atlas-X1 and eXtreme copper connectors easily snap into the cassette after termination. Panel covers and cassette blanks offer extra protection from dust and damage.
