The PATCHBOX® Plus+ System offers a variety of advantages like faster, more organized, documented and many more compared to conventional cabling. It always depends on what you like to archive with the System or what your requirements are so some features might be of greater value for you than others.
We could write about the advantages on and on but it might be most efficient if you just give us a call (+43 1 99 71 960) or drop us an email and we can give you advice on how to get the most out of it for your specific use case.
How does the PATCHBOX® Plus+ work?
The PATCHBOX® Plus+ with its retractable cables, provides the user with the exact cable length needed. No more overly long cables, creating a cabinet full of cable spaghetti. The PATCHBOX® Plus+ is a all-in-one solution, which includes cable management, labeling, mounting rails, and interchangeable patch cord cassettes.
How long are the cables?
In the standard version the cable is 1.7m extractable which covers up to 26 RU. We have long range cassettes available with up to 2.7m extractable cables.
How often can i pull the cable out?
We have tested up to 300 pulling cycles without any compromises in performance.
Is it possible to run PoE on the flat patch cords?
Yes, you can absolutely use it for Power over Ethernet applications like Telephones or Access Points. We recommend a maximum of 15.4W which is standard PoE (IEEE 802.3af).
Isn’t the bending radius on the fibre optic to tight?
We only use bend insensitive fibre which are available on the market since only 2011 and are capable of bending radiuses of up to 9mm.
Where do you produce your products?
Our production facilities are in Hungary and we source our materials from Germany, Austria, Hungary and the United Kingdom.
What is the performance of the cables?
Our Cat. 6 UTP and Cat. 6 STP patch cords are tested to ISO 11801 Class E standards and provide you therefore with a speed of 1GBit/s. Our fibre optical patch cords are capable of speeds up to 40GBit/s and are also tested to ISO 11801 standards.
My RJ45 connectors were scratched when i received them, has it been used?
All of our patch cords are tested before dispatch. We connect them to a Fluke DSX-5000 and run ISO Class E tests on them to ensure you only get highest quality patch cords.
How much weight can the Setup.exe carry?
The recommended maximum weight is 15kg but we ran tests with up to 20kg of weight. The Setup.exe itself is capable of much more due to its strong design the weak point here are the 19” mounting rails. Please refer to you rack manufacturer for the maximum weight per rack unit.
Can i mount heavy servers or USP’s with the Setup.exe?
We recommend a maximum weight of 15kg to not put the 19” rails at risk of bending. For heavier equipment please use mounting rails which are usually provided from the equipment manufacturer.
The Setup.exe is not sitting tight or too loose on the 19” rail.
Please adjust the brackets by loosening the screws on the side using a nut or wrench and adjust them to the thickness of your 19” rails.
My Setup.exe makes squeaking noises.
You can apply a tiny drop of WD40 or something similar to the hinge to get rid of possible noises.
