May 24, 2010 Siemon, announces DIN Rail Mounted Patch Panels. These 4-port panels snap securely unto any standard 35mm DIN-Rail to provide a quick and flexible patching solution for RJ-45 based copper and optical fiber 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.Siemons DIN-Rail patch panels feature 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 2.75(70mm) of mounting depth, without impeding port access or exceeding performance-critical cable bend-radius requirements.At just 4(130mm) 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 fiber modules.
