ICC Introduces a New CAT 6A Patch Panel

ICC Press Releases

Fullerton, California – ICC introduces a new Category 6A (CAT 6A) patch panel featuring 110-Type Insulation Displacement Connectors (IDCs) terminals on the rear.  The terminals are in-line vertically and separated specifically to make wiring easier and to improve performances.  IDC terminals can also withstand termination impact using a 4 pair punch-down tool.

The CAT 6A patch panel is built to perform.  It’s UL® listed and supports IEEE 802.3an standard for 10GBASE-T network performance.  It also supports PoE and PoE+IEEE 802.3at and is backwards compatible with CAT 6 and CAT 5e structured cabling systems.  The patch panel has gone through rigid testing to exceed the ANSI/TIA-568-C.2 industry standard showing data transmission beyond 500MHz. Results also reveal Permanent Link headroom up to 7.1dB NEXT and Channel Link headroom up to 9.1dB NEXT using ICC Premise Cables.

ICC designed the panel for unparalleled quality.  All contacts in each port have ICC’s signature 50 micro inch gold plating to protect from corrosion.  The outer frame is made of 16 gauge steel with black powder coated paint for maximum protection.  Twenty-four (24) RJ-45 ports with silk-screen port numbers and labeling areas are available on the front of the panel.  Color wiring diagrams on the rear of the panel show both T568A and T568B wiring schemes.

The patch panel is perfect for telecom room and data center applications.  The panel fits one rack mount space and is designed to mount onto wall mount brackets, distribution racks or cabinets with standard 19” EIA widths.  Use ICC CAT 6A premise cable, 22 to 24 wire gauge, and the structured cabling system is eligible for ICC’s 15 Year or Lifetime Performance Warranty.  Go online to www.icc.com/warranty for more information.

ICC’s CAT 6A patch panel is available through a nationwide network of ICC distributors. To locate a distributor near you, visit www.icc.com/distributor or call ICC at 888-ASK-4ICC (275-4422).
