Bittree to Highlight New Data Patch Panels at NAB Show

Available in fiber, copper and mixed configurations March 14, 2017

GLENDALE, Calif.—Bittree will arrive at the Las Vegas Convention Center for this year’s NAB Show with a series of flush-mount, high-density, modular keystone data patch panels to go along with its video and audio patchbay products. These new data patch panels are available in fiber, cooper and mixed configurations.

The 1RU data panels offer 1x24 density in a single, non-staggered row with room for a bar-and-cap front designation strip; it can also accommodate inserts with up to 17mm pitch. The front panel construction features rear lacing bars while the nickel-plated rear panel serves as a ground plane for shielded and bonded applications when used with corresponding jacks in copper configurations. The keystone panels support connectivity options that include ST, LC and SC fiber, plus RJ45 Cat6 and Cat6A punchdown or feed-through, shielded or unshielded adapters.

Fibber-equipped panel configurations support both multi-mode and single-mode fiber applications and are compliant with ANSI/TIA-568-C and UL1863 communications standards.  There are also four copper connectivity options that incorporate nickel-plated phosphor bronze contacts with gold over-plate and exceed ANSI/TIA-568-C.2 requirements. RJ45-to-RJ45 feed-through and RJ45-to-110 IDC Punchdown interface modules are available in shielded or non-shielded variants.

Bittree is offering the panels in multiple pre-configured models or can be customized with any combination of connectors. Custom configurations can accommodate both fiber and copper connections in a single panel.

Bittree will showcase the new data patch panels at booth SU6221.
