NC – An ICC Elite Installer located near Knightdale, North Carolina, was hired to install an ICC structured cabling system. The project called for 312 Category 6 (CAT6) data drops to run from the equipment room to the work areas. Common project materials such as faceplates, keystone jacks, J-Hooks, and others were used for the installation. However, the installer decided to purchase 48-port CAT6 patch panels in a six-pack ValuePack.
ICC’s ValuePack helps reduce the cost per patch panel, saving the installer money. Also, packing six patch panels in a single carton saved the installer time from opening multiple cartons and reduced packaging waste, protecting the environment. Each panel is individually protected with bubble wrap to prevent scratching during shipping. The ValuePack carton is resealable. It can help store unused products until they are needed. The carton is also built tough and designed for repeated use. Most importantly, ICC’s patch panels are in compliance with industry standards.
ICC’s CAT6 patch panels are TIA® and ETL® “component-rated” which is a tougher standard than the “permanent link” rating. Also, 50 micro inch gold is plated on the contact’s interface area in each port of the panel which meets the FCC part 68 compliance. Plus, ICC’s patch panels are PoE 100W rated.
