Cat. 6A EL in the New 24 Port Panel

For installers, fast assembly is just as important as the functionality and quality of the products. This is why R&M is doing everything in its power to speed up and optimize installation processes. A key step here was the development of the RJ45 connection module Cat. 6A EL. The Easy Lock (EL) mechanism cuts termination down to just a few easy steps. Tests have shown that a Cat. 6A EL module can be wired with a shielded-pair cable in under a minute.

R&M now offers a wiring tool to make wiring even more convenient and faster. With a lever movement, the wiring block is precisely inserted into the module housing. The contacting of the wires in the IDCs does not require any great strength.

If a project has to be implemented faster and even more smoothly, the module is combined with the 24 Port PC Panel Cat. 6A. Just a quick flick of the wrist and the module is sitting snugly in the patch panel. The adapterless easy lock technique shortens the assembly process down to a record time. Shielding is automatically contacted.

This 1U platform with ports in one row is also a new development from R&M. It was designed for the structured office and building cabling of the 10-Gigabit era and for today’s installation requirements.

Naturally, faster installation cannot be allowed to negatively impact operational reliability and performance. The combination of Cat. 6EL module and 24 Port Panel Cat. 6A exceeds – with correct assembly – all parameters required by the ISO / IEC 11801 Class EA standard. The cabling system is thus ready for 10 Gigabit Ethernet.
