  • Each port features surge protection on all wires.
  • Guaranteed for life!


  • Super convenient—faster and easier than installing individual data-line protectors.
  • Designed for high-speed data, voice, and multimedia applications.
  • Meets or exceeds TIA/EIA-T568-A Category 5 standards.

  • Save money—instead of buying multiple data-line protectors, get everything you need in one patch panel.

    Here's your chance to save money and time while making sure your CAT5 lines are protected from damaging surges and spikes. The BLACK BOX® CAT5 Protected Patch Panel incorporates a patch panel and 24 data-line protectors in one!

    With this two-in-one panel, you'll get a top-quality, 24-port CAT5 patch panel designed for mission-critical, high-speed data, voice, and multimedia applications. It's compatible with networks such as 10BASE-T, 100BASE-T, and 155-Mbps ATM, and it exceeds EIA/TIA 568 standards.

    The panel features 24 tin-plated 110 IDC connectors mated to RJ-45 connectors.

    You'll also get worry-free data-line protection from lightning, electrostatic discharge (ESD), and other power anomalies. In one step, you have the data-line protection you need to keep your system and data safe. And you save a lot of time by installing only 1 panel instead of 24 separate protectors.

    The panel provides bidirectional clamping for maximum power protection. It features extremely sensitive, avalanche diode technology and a fail-safe mode that protects equipment even if there's a surge overload. It's self-resetting up to 1500 watts.

    With this panel, your system will be up and running when users need it. Less downtime means less frustration for you. You'll save time and money, and you'll enjoy peace of mind.
