Patch panels serve as interface modules between the field and control cabinet cabling. The new DIN rail devices now also feature Push-in, IDC or screw connection, in addition to the traditional RJ45 connection. This can save you a great deal of time during installation. These are available as versions with integrated surge protection and shield current monitoring. The range is complemented by Power over Ethernet injectors, which can supply remote Ethernet devices with data and power via the same cable.
- Quick and easy mounting
- Large selection of different connection technologies
- Surge protection to ensure high system availability
- Shield current monitoring for diagnostics in the event of shield currents caused by EMC or potential differences
- Wiring space covered with front panel cover
- Compact design
Versatile connection technologies and covered wiring space
Greater flexibility and time savings during installation: You can choose between IDC, Push-in, screw, and RJ45 connections.
Covered cable wiring space: A hinged cover covers the wiring space on the field cable side with connection terminal blocks and shield contacting. This ensures a uniform installation pattern. In addition to this visual extra, the sensitive connection wires are protected from external influences.
Tool-free shield connection
The cable shielding can be connected to the device quickly and easily without tools – with strain relief assured at the same time. Simply lay the cable in the shaft provided and close the shroud – and you're done. Your advantage: quick installation thanks to tool-free connection with no loose parts.
Surge protection and shield current monitoring on the field cable side
The patch panels are available as versions with the new surge protection and shield current monitoring functions. The integrated surge protection protects the devices and the application against sudden high voltages in the data cables. The cable shield current monitoring can be used for diagnostics in applications with Power over Ethernet. An LED indicates if there are differences in potential or other shield currents caused by the effects of EMC.
