Bel Stewart Connector's New Space-Saving MRJ21 1U Patch Panels (48-Port RJ45)

Devices Enable Quick and Easy Transition from MRJ21 Cable Connectivity to RJ45 Connectivity

GLEN ROCK, Pa.--Released today from Bel Stewart Connector, a division of Bel Fuse Inc. (NASDAQ: BELFA) (NASDAQ: BELFB), are 48-port MRJ21 1U patch panels for high-density networking and telecommunications applications. The 10/100BASE-T (PN ASY60300-005) and 10/100/1000BASE-T Gigabit Ethernet (PN ASY60300-006) patch panels are the latest additions to Stewart Connector's MRJ21 Cabling System, a high-density, high-performance, copper cabling solution. The new patch panels are engineered to assist installers to rapidly connect equipment using MRJ21 interfaces to infrastructure or equipment with RJ45 ports, as well as save valuable rack and cabinet space in data centers or telecommunications rooms.


Stewart Connector's MRJ21 Cabling System supports high-density, small form factor connectivity in any plug and play environment including data centers and zone cabled or office environments. The patch panels fit into standard 19-inch racks and are ideally suited for use with Stewart Connector's MRJ21 cable assemblies, which offer the ability to connect 24 twisted pairs (12 two-pair or 6 four-pair ports) with just one connection. Available in common and custom sizes, the factory terminated and tested cable assemblies facilitate quicker installation together with highly reliable and robust connections. The cables are supplied in shielded and unshielded configurations in addition to plenum, riser and LSZH jacket constructions. Multiple versions of MRJ21 end configurations, including hybrid MRJ21 to RJ45 and RJ21, are provided.

Patch panels feature a straight panel design with push-on keyed connection, jackscrews for positive latching and secure cable retention, and on-site configuration label.

Designs for T1/E1 and DSL applications, along with custom connector terminations, are available upon request.
