Siemon Network Patch Panels
For more than a century family owned and operated Siemon has excelled in technological leadership. Siemon’s innovative advances focus on the manufacturing of high performance network cabling technology - with patch panels a critical component.
In this patch panel guide, we'll explore many of Siemon patch panel choices for a variety of networking applications, be it 12 port, 24 port or 48 port patch panels in flat and angled configurations.
TERA-MAX Category 7 Patch Panels
TERA-MAX patch panels provide outstanding performance and reliability in a shielded, high-density modular solution. As outlets are snapped into place, resilient ground tabs assure that each outlet is properly grounded for maximum protection from outside interference. No secondary outlet grounding operations are required, reducing overall installation time.
Z-MAX 6A Shielded Patch Panels
Z-MAX patch panels provide outstanding performance and aesthetics in a shielded, high-density modular solution. The Z-MAX panels provide rapid and reliable installation by accelerating outlet mounting, grounding, and cable tie-down operations.
In addition to traditional 24 port / 1U flat and angled versions, the Z-MAX shielded panels are also available in 48 port / 1U configurations to permit high density installations.
Z-MAX 6A UTP Patch Panels
Z-MAX patch panels provide outstanding 10 Gb/s performance and aesthetics in a high-density, modular UTP solution. The Z-MAX UTP panels provide rapid and reliable installation by accelerating module mounting, and cable tie-down operations. In addition to traditional 24 port / 1U flat and angled versions, the Z-MAX UTP panels are also available in 48 port / 1U configurations to permit high density installations.
TERA-MAX Patch Panels
TERA-MAX Category 7 Patch Panels are also suitable for the Category 6A ZMAX 6A Shielded cabling system. TERA-MAX panels are designed for use with hybrid (flat/angled) shielded Z-MAX outlets, shielded MAX or TERA outlets. Since TERA-MAX panels also accept Cat 7 TERA outlets, the panels support potential future infrastructure upgrades.
HD® 6 Patch Panels
With universal wiring for both T568A and T568B, HD 6 network patch panels were the industry’s first patch panels to exceed category 6 connecting hardware specifications for all pair combinations up to 250 MHz. Part of the System 6 cabling system, HD 6 network patch panels feature user-friendly termination, labeling, and cable management, plus they can be mounted directly to an EIA standard 19 inch relay rack or cabinet.
Rear cable manager properly guides cables to point of termination while the rear metal enclosure protects printed circuitry. To reduce installation time when lacing cables, HD 6 patch panels use a pyramid wire entry system on S310 blocks to separate paired conductors.
12-Port HD® 6 Mounted On S89D Bracket
Part of the System 6 cabling system, the HD6-89D-12, 12-port category 6 HD 6 network patch panel, with Universal T568A/B wiring, is also an economical solution for small applications. It can be used to retrofit S66™ punch down blocks to a high performance modular design.
MAX® Patch Panels
MAX patch panels provide a flexible, high density termination solution for the telecommunications room. Using the full line of MAX modules (available separately), the panel can be configured for a variety of multimedia applications and 10GBASE-T performance. A rear cable management bar isincluded for routing horizontal cables to terminations.
Angled MAX Patch Panel
Siemon's MAX series angled patch panels route cables directly into the vertical cable managers eliminating the need for horizontal cable management between panels. The Angled MAX Patch Panel combines modular design with high density and is capable of supporting multiple media types using a variety of MAX modules. Available in 1 and 2 RMS versions.
12-Port HD5® Mounted On S89D Bracket
