PATCHBOX Plus+ & PATCHBOX 365
What are the differences between the PATCHBOX Plus+ and the PATCHBOX 365?
The PATCHBOX Plus+ is designed for standard network racks and the PATCHBOX 365 for smaller network racks yet both share the same fundamental benefits.
The PATCHBOX Plus+ has an extractable cable length of 1.7m which covers up to 26 RU. The PATCHBOX 365 has a cable length of 0.8m which covers up to 10 RU yet because of its smaller unit depth it does not require mounting rails.
How long are the cables?
PATCHBOX Plus+ has an extractable cable length of 1.7m which covers up to 26 RU.
For longer connections, which should cover more than 26 RU, Long Range cassettes are available. These can cover 48 RU and compared to the Patchbox Plus+, they have an over length of one metre which is not retractable (retractable 1.7m + not retractable 1m).
The PATCHBOX 365 designed for smaller network racks has an extractable cable length of 0.8m which covers up to 10 RU.
Do PATCHBOX 365 Cassettes fit in the PATCHBOX Plus+?
Yes, you can use the PATCHBOX 365 Cassettes in the PATCHBOX Plus+. However the PATCHBOX Plus+ Cassettes should not be used with the PATCHBOX 365. The PATCHBOX 365 is designed for smaller network racks and does not require mounting rails and therefore can not guarantee stability using the longer PATCHBOX Plus+ Cassettes.
How often can I extract the cables? How many pulling cycles can I expect?
Both the PATCHBOX Plus+ and PATCHBOX 365 have tested 300+ pulling cycles without any compromises in performance.
Is the PATCHBOX PoE compatible?
Yes, both the PATCHBOX Plus+ and PATCHBOX 365 are PoE compatible. We recommend a maximum of 15.4W which is standard PoE (IEEE 802.3af).
How does the bending affect the fiber optic cables?
We only use bend insensitive fiber optic cables which have bending radiuses of up to 9mm.
What is the bandwidth of the patch cords?
Our Cat. 6 UTP and Cat. 6 STP patch cords used in the PATCHBOX Plus+ and PATCHBOX 365 are tested to ISO 11801 Class E standards (Cat.6) and provide a data rate of 1GBit/s.
Is the PATCHBOX covered by a manufacturer warranty?
Yes, we offer a 5 year manufacturer warranty on the PATCHBOX Plus+ and PATCHBOX 365.
What type of network racks / rails is the Setup.exe compatible with?
The Setup.exe fits all 19" rails with square punched holes. The Setup.exe can also be configured to fit 19" rails with different rail thicknesses. The Setup.exe is not compatible with 19" rails with threaded holes.
How much weight can the Setup.exe carry?
The recommended maximum load-bearing capacity is 15kg.
The load-bearing capacity is limited to the maximum weight per rack unit (RU) of the network rack. Please refer to the rack manufacturer for the maximum weight per rack unit (RU).
The Setup.exe is not sitting tight or too loose on the 19” rail.
Please adjust the brackets by loosening the nuts on the side using a wrench and adjust them to the thickness of your 19” rails.
Is the Setup.exe covered by a manufacturer warranty?
Yes, we offer a lifetime manufacturer warranty on the Setup.exe.
