Belden Inc. has launched its new REVConnect Preloaded Patch Panel to support faster deployment in enterprise networks.
Designed based on specific feedback from installers and end-users about what they need most in a preloaded patch panel, REVConnect Preloaded Patch Panels meet their most important requirements—and offer several other time-saving features as well.
As the only preloaded patch panel that allows installers to utilize a multi-pair tool while terminating with one hand—and using the same termination method as REVConnect jacks, which terminate reliably and easily, and are very versatile—REVConnect Preloaded Patch Panels save time and make training and installation easy. The patch panels can be terminated from the rear or front; one termination method can be used for patch panels and workstations to simplify logistics and the number of tools needed. The panels can also be identified using labels or icons.
For optimized cable management, and a faster termination process, cable-measuring features allow installers to simply use the space over every port to organize cables, dress cables to management accessories and measure the slack needed (for front or rear termination), mark the cables and start terminating.
REVConnect Preloaded Patch Panels can be ordered using only one part number, which simplifies the ordering process, making it easier and faster.
“Everything the installer needs is included in the box: fully assembled housings, cable support bars and labeling material,” says Benoit Chevarie, global product manager, connectivity, at Belden. “REVConnect Preloaded Patch Panels feature single-port modularity to simplify network maintenance, ensure easier repair and guarantee port availability. This, combined with front accessibility, makes their service and maintenance simple and straightforward.”
REVConnect Preloaded Patch Panels are available in flat and angled designs, black and white versions in Category 6A (10GX), Category 6 (CAT6+) and Category 5e (CAT5E) options, with 24 or 48 ports.
