Siemon, the network cabling infrastructure company, has announced the release of its new DIN Rail mounted patch panel. This 4-port panel snaps securely into any standard 35mm DIN-Rail to provide a quick and flexible patching solution for RJ-45 based copper and optical fibre Industrial Ethernet connections. This allows Ethernet connectivity to be easily mounted wherever DIN Rail is available, including in distribution cabinets, alongside DIN Rail Ethernet switches and with PLCs and other control devices.
Siemon’s DIN Rail patch panel features an angled mounting design for low-profile cable routing. By angling the outlet orientation, the panel provides ample cable routing space and secure strain relief in just 70mm (2.75 inches) of mounting depth, without impeding port access or exceeding performance-critical cable bend radius requirements.
At just 130mm (four inches) wide, the 4-port modular panels are side stackable, allowing a simple, high-density expansion path to address expanding network connectivity needs. These durable panels are constructed of lightweight, high strength steel with industrial black powder-coat finish and integrated cable management features.
Compatible with Siemon Z-MAX outlets and MAX modules, these panels support a wide array of cabling connectivity options, including Z-MAX 6A category 6A/Class EA systems in both UTP and shielded configurations, category 6 UTP Z-MAX, shielded and UTP category 5e MAX as well as LC, SC, ST and MTRJ MAX fibre modules.
The new DIN Rail panel from Siemon comes from the company’s SIS (Siemon Interconnect Solutions) development team, focused on solving industry and customer-driven interconnect challenges by developing standards-based, application specific products. The SIS expertise calls together extensive network engineering knowledge with design innovation and considerable production capability.
The SIS portfolio includes a comprehensive line of connectors and cable types that may be integrated with an array of transmission technologies, providing solutions for a variety of markets and customer applications.
