CAT 5E Screened Right Angle Patch Panel

OPTiLite Category 5E patch panels are manufactured and tested to the Category 6 performance standards defined by the TIA, ISO and EN standards bodies. A range of performance characteristics are tested upto 250 MHz including return loss, attenuation and near and far end cross talk (NEXT and FEXT) for which both worst case and power sum tests are completed.

Actual performance far exceeds the required standard – when tested in isolation and in circuit – resulting in significant headroom for even the most demanding of applications. As well as providing link and channel compliance – when installed with OPTiLite category 6 components – with the aforementioned specification – the panel is also backward compatible with Category 5e components.
