November 10, 2008--A cable identifier system that is also designed to solve disorganized cable rack conditions is now available as PatchSee "The Intelligent Patch Cords," from Mitsubishi International Corp, Optical Products Division.
The design incorporates two plastic optical fibers built in to standard Category 5, 6 and 6A patch cords, along with LED light injection. Users can identify and secure both ends of a patch cord without tracing cables or disconnections. PatchSee also helps define various cable line functions by providing 16 color-coded, removable clips that snap on to the RJ-45 connectors. The clips negate the need for maintaining varied color patch cord lengths, reduce inventories, and eliminate the need for cable labels.
Suited for data processing, networking, office automation, industrial control and telecom panels, these cable identifiers meet EIA/TIA standards and are compatible with computer cabling equipment and switches. A 25-year product use warranty accompanies each PatchSee patch cord.
Key specifications include: Zero-halogen, PVC sheathed (UTP) types; 11 standard lengths, 2 to 16 ft. (0.6 to 4.9 m) plus a long-length direct cable 20.1 to 165 ft. (6.1 to 50 m); operations to 10-Gbits/sec bandwidth (Cat 6A).
A free demonstration kit explores the light identifier function, as well as a sample operating "starter kit."
