Bel Stewart: Space-Saving 1U Patch Panels
Rack-mount patch panels.
Glen Rock, PA — New from Bel Stewart Connector, a division of Bel Fuse Inc. are 48-port MRJ21 1U patch panels for high-density networking and telecommunications applications. The 10/100BASE-T (PN ASY60300-005) and 10/100/1000BASE-T Gigabit Ethernet (PN ASY60300-006) patch panels are the latest additions to the company's MRJ21 Cabling System, a high-density, high-performance, copper cabling solution.

The new patch panels are engineered to assist installers to rapidly connect equipment using MRJ21 interfaces to infrastructure or equipment with RJ45 ports, while saving valuable rack and cabinet space in data centers or telecommunications rooms. the cabling system supports high-density, small form factor connectivity in any plug-and-play environment including data centers and zone cabled or office environments. The patch panels fit into standard 19-in. racks and are suitable for use with the company's MRJ21 cable assemblies, which offer the ability to connect 24 twisted pairs (12 two-pair or 6 four-pair ports) with just one connection.

Available in common and custom sizes, the factory-terminated and tested cable assemblies facilitate quicker installation together with highly reliable and robust connections. The cables are supplied in shielded and unshielded configurations in addition to plenum, riser and LSZH jacket constructions. Multiple versions of MRJ21 end configurations, including hybrid MRJ21 to RJ45 and RJ21, are provided.

Patch panels have a straight-panel design with push-on keyed connection, jackscrews for positive latching and secure cable retention, and on-site configuration label.

Designs for T1/E1 and DSL applications, along with custom connector terminations, are also available.
