R&M is further increasing the packing density of copper cabling in 19-inch racks. Now, a patch panel for data centers has been created which accommodates 48 ports of the highest category, Cat. 6A ISO, on a single height unit (1 U). R&M has facilitated the assembly and disassembly of the RJ45 modules. They can be unlocked on the front. In addition to the connection modules for copper cabling, the new 48 port patch panel can also accommodate fiber-optic connections. R&M provides adapters for LC duplex and SC simplex adapters. The diverse possible uses of the patch panel result in a number of economic advantages for users, emphasizes R&M. The panel is suitable both for data centers and for highly densified distributors in structured cabling systems. R&M supplies shielded and unshielded versions.
