Category 5e Screened Keystone Feed-Thru Couplers

Category 5e UTP keystone feed-thru couplers can be used as a second piece of connecting hardware when a cross-connection is needed for active equipment connection to the cabling, and as a consolidation point in the open office environment. Feed-thru cou-plers meet component, permanent link and channel requirements as defined in TIA/EIA-568-C.2 and provide a sound platform for supporting today's network technologies. These high-density feed-thru couplers are compatible with Signamax 24- and 48-port high density snap-in patch panels providing flexibility in field installation. They are also compatible with all Signamax faceplates and sur-face mount multimedia boxes.
  • Applications:
    - cross-connections
    - horizontal cabling consolidation points
    - horizontal cabling connection point in building automation cabling
  • Contact design provides enhanced plug-to-jack connection integrity and protects against damage caused by insertion of 4- or 6-position plugs
  • Rated for at least 750 plug insertions
  • Compatible with T568A and T568B cabling
