TERA-MAX Patch Panels


TERA-MAX 19 inch patch panels harness unprecedented performance and reliability in a shielded, modular solution. Any combination of TERA or hybrid shielded Z-MAX™ modules (in flat orientation) can be configured in TERA-MAX panels. In addition to standard flat TERA-MAX panels, angled versions are also offered to support high-density applications.

As outlets are snapped into place, resilient ground tabs and ground lugs assure that each outlet and cable is properly grounded for maximum protection against outside interference.

No secondary grounding operations are required, reducing overall installation time. Built-in cable management and strain relief features are integrated onto the rear of panel.

  • Lightweight, high strength steel with black or metallic finish
  • Bold port numbering enables quick identification of outlets
  • Panels can be mounted directly on standard 19 inch rack or cabinet
  • ANSI/EIA-310-D compliant
  • Individual modules easily snap into place, providing integrated grounding without additional steps
  • Angled TERA-MAX patch panels allows direct routing of cables to vertical managers, eliminating the need for horizontal cable managers
