The Excel Category 6A Screened Angled Keystone Jack, is a toolless termination RJ45 socket suitable for mounting in patch panels.
The angled design of the socket face makes this product ideal for high density frames. Traditional horizontal patch cable management bars can be removed or reduced in number as the leads follow a natural route to the left or right of the panel and the cabinets vertical management.
To the rear of the socket the design is exactly the same as the excel keystone range, enabling standard termination and cable dressing practices to be followed. The socket itself is housed in a high quality zinc die cast housing, which opens a the rear in a butterfly manner to reveal the IDC termination points. Once the conductors of the cable to be terminated are fed into a management cap the process is completed by snapping the 'butterfly wings' together with minimal, but firm pressure.
Patch Panel frames with 24 port density in both black and chrome are available.
