Modular telecoms patch panels

30 January 2019 Telecoms, Datacoms, Wireless, IoT

The exponential growth in data and telecoms services has created significant space pressure in data centres and telecommunication rooms of telecom companies. Space is expensive and ever-increasing costs call for optimum usage with high-density solutions.

The crucial factor is that improved efficiencies must be affected without reducing quality, i.e., connections must still be robust, reliable, easy to handle and, as there is constant change in IT technologies, the cabling has to be highly flexible to cater for these changes.

These challenges are met with Telegärtner’s new patch panel system HD3 (high density, high durability, high dynamic) from Webb Industries. With fibre-optic, twisted pair and coax modules for cabling installation on site, as well as for the connection of pre-terminated cables that can be combined individually and which can be installed and changed within just a few seconds, the new HD3 patch panel is an ideal solution for users who need a flexible and future-proof solution.

½ HU, 1 HU and 3 HU modular 19“ panels, which can be installed in a recessed position, and a multi-purpose rail allows for easy cable routing, strain relief and installation of mounting brackets. Installation of modules is possible from the front and from behind due to an ­innovative locking mechanism. Modules in a standard non-recessed position can be exchanged quickly without the need for special tools.

Mixing of fibre-optic, twisted pair and coaxial modules in the same panel ensures optimal efficiency, and a wide variety of different fibre-optic modules is available for breakout/mini-breakout/pre-terminated cables, with integrated splice cassette or fanout modules with MPO/MTP connection.

Up to 144 fibres with LC connectors can be realised per HU with MPO/MTP modules or breakout and mini-breakout cables; up to 96 fibres with loose tube cables; up to 48 RJ45 jacks per HU; and up to 48 SMA or 24 BNC coax connections per HU. Furthermore, cable management can be installed and removed without any tools, and customer-specific modules are available on request.
