Category 5e MDX-Series Unscreened Patch Panels

The next step in integration in the complete copper communication solution – SIGNAMAX MDX-Series Patch Panel.

The MDX was designed based on the best features of our MD and EC-Series panels with a new innovative twist that offers cable management within the same rack space as the panel.  Slots were designed in between each block of ports for cable management rings offering custom patch cord management configurations, along with, two different options for port identification.  The clear hinged window feature allows for custom marked ports, whereas, the small pads along the bottom of each port offers quick notation. Each panel is equipped with plastic fillers to cover the mounting slots when they are unnecessary. The new and improved SIGNAMAX MDX Patch Panel ensures flexibility at the time of initial  installation and during service operations.
