A range of panels supplied fully populated with feed-through (also known as double-sided or back-to-back) screened, RJ45, CAT5E sockets, enabling system patching and easy connection of portable or external equipment. A printable designation-strip with snap on cover and a lacing bar are fitted as standard.
Manufactured from a lightweight, but extremely rigid, broadcast style, aluminium extrusion. The individual connectors are mounted in a sub chassis and are presented flush with the face of the front panel. Panels are fitted with a cranked lacing-bar giving easy access to the rear sockets. The connectors are arranged in equal groups either side of a central divide and a designation-strip holder with snap-on cover is fitted on the front panel to permit the supplied paper strips to be inserted before or after installation; 7.5mm of printable height is available. Templates for printing designation strip labels, available as a DWG file for AutoCAD and compatible applications, can be downloaded from the appropriate product page on the Canford website.
Spare 432mm designation strip paper (not suitable for printers) and covers are available, see Designation strips - snap on.
Available finished in Dawn Grey (BS4800-10A03) or Black.
Optional accessories: see Canford Rackbracket - Recess mounting brackets.
