Siemon, a provider of network infrastructure, has expanded its patch panel line with new Angled HD patch panels. Available in 24- and 48-port versions and in both Category 5e and Category 6, the new angled panels offer higher density and installer-friendly features.
Designed for use where patch cables are managed within the vertical channel, the new Angled HD patch panels feature the same rear cable management and electrical performance as Siemon's line of flat HD-style patch panels.
The HD5 series angled panels exceed Category 5e specifications with component and channel performance to 160 MHz. The HD6 angled series panels exceed Category 6 specifications for all pair combinations up to 250 MHz. Designed with the installer in mind, the panels are offered in both standard and contractor bulk packaging and can be easily mounted in EIA standard 19-inch racks or cabinets. They feature a write-on area for panel and port identification on both the front and rear of the panel, as well as a front surface uninterrupted by screw heads for a clean appearance.
The Category 5e Angled HD5 panels use S110 termination modules compatible with Siemon's multi-pair impact tool that reduces installation time. The Category 6 Angled HD6 panels use S310 termination modules with pyramid wire entry that separates paired and bonded-paired conductors when lacing cables for fast installation. Through its flat and angled HD, MAX, Z-MAX, and TERA-MAX patch panel offerings, Siemon delivers a range of UTP and shielded customer applications from Category 5e to Category 7A.
