PowerCat 6 Angled Patch Panels


Part No: PID-00156 , PID-00157

Region: global

PowerCat 6 Angled Patch Panels are ideal for installations of high density or which utilize extensive side and end-of-the-rack cable management. The angled feature provides enhanced port access and minimizes patch cord bend radius to the rack. The IDC section consists of V-shaped contacts that flex not fatigue when terminated. Each RJ45 port features a patented spring-loaded shutter and can be color coded to match jack outlets with the use of optional port icons. Offering both front and rear labeling options, the patch panel is constructed of cold-rolled steel for additional strength and durability.

Our PowerCat 6 system is suitable for PoE applications as defined below:
IEEE 802.3bt from Type 1 to Type 4, and CISCO UPoE+
For new installations of PoE Type 3 / Class 5 and above that wish to be eligible for the Molex 25 year Application Assurance Warranty, we require Category 6A cable to be used throughout. To confirm your PoE / RP3 cabling design is eligible for the Molex 25 year Application Assurance Warranty, your design must be verified and validated with the Molex PoE Calculator.
