  • Do you need to test and monitor your DTE/DCE equipment? Not sure what piece of equipment is experiencing circuitry problems and causing network disruption? The Patch Panel Chassis provides a reliable and cost-effective way to access data circuits for network reconfiguration, restore service to equipment that goes down, monitor noninterruptive lines, and troubleshoot your system.

    Along with the Patch Panel Chassis, be sure to order the optional modules and cables specific to your application (see "Related Products"). You can remove the modules from the chassis without disconnecting the cables. Each circuit module has five LED activity indicators for SD, RD, CD, DTR, and DSR. The test module displays 10 activity LEDs of a specific interface with associated test points, a lamp test push button, and a DB25 monitor port for optional external equipment.

    The chassis features 16 slots for optional patch modules and one slot for an optional monitor/test module and includes a power supply. Each patch module features three front-panel patch cavities for access to the circuit. Two rear connectors are for DTE and DCE connections. Each test module provides noninterruptive monitoring via a DB25 connector. The chassis support speeds up to 10 Mbps.

    The Patch Panel Chassis is rackmountable in a NEMA standard 19" cabinet. Gold plated, self-wiping contacts ensure reliability. It's transparent to all data path signals.
