24 Port PowerCat 6A Shielded Patch Panel, 568A/B, 1U


Part No: PID-00217

Region: global

The 24 Port (1U) and 48 Port (2U) PowerCat 6A Shielded Patch Panels are made from robust sheet metal. These panels are also supplied with robust removable rear cable management trays for cable strain relief and neat cable dressing. Port numbering is provided on the front and rear of the panel and individual ports may be color coded using connector icon labels for site specific network administration.

The PowerCat 6A Shielded Patch Panel features the unique DataGate™ Shielded connector. This shielded connector offers superior alien crosstalk suppression, excellent insertion loss, and provides enhanced electromagnetic interference (EMI) protection by utilizing robust die-cast zinc alloy connector body housing. This shielded connector also features a unique spring loaded shutter that not only protects it from dust and contaminates, but the ingenious spring loaded design also ejects improperly seated patch cords. The shielded connector is dual color coded for either 568A or 568B wiring schedules. The DataGate PowerCat 6A Shielded connector was specifically developed for high-speed data transmission; designed to exceed the highest electrical performance standards in the industry. The DataGate PowerCat 6A Shielded connector is also backwards compatible with Shielded C6 and C5e systems.

Molex recommends that the full range of PowerCat 6A Shielded products be used in a system to maximize cabling performance. This system is compliant with the latest ISO 11801 AMD 1 Class EA and TIA-568-C.2 Cat 6A for the support of 10G BASE-T.
