Excel Networking Solutions, the award winning copper and optical cabling infrastructure provider, has expanded its Category 6A screened solution with the introduction of a re-engineered low profile version of its already popular keystone toolless jack.

The brief to designers was to provide a low profile connector offering integrators a quick and easy way to terminate product, combined with excellent performance, and the smallest depth in the market. The result is a product which quite simply sets new standards on all fronts.

As the saying goes, size matters, taking on board challenges being experienced by many system designers and installation engineers, the new Excel jack comes in at just 28.3mm deep, some 10% shallower than its closest rival depth wise.

The overall dimensions of the jack are 16.2mm wide x 28.3mm deep x 21.5mm high.

This reduced depth, together with the strain relief feature, built into the butterfly termination clamp, allows for entry from top, rear, sides and below.

In addition all of the great features of the Excel Category 6A Screened Toolless Jack, including the high quality die cast housing, 360 degree screening and butterfly opening, remain as part the product design.

A standard requirement of any Excel Category 6A product is third party verification, we only work to the most stringent standard. Our new low profile jack is no exception, designed, manufactured, and verified by Delta to the Augmented Category 6/Class EA specifications as defined in ISO 11801 2nd edition amend 1 and ANSI/TIA-568-C.2 this jack offers performance way above published standards, right down to 5 metre lengths when installed with Excel Category 6A screened cables.

Excel believe this jack which will set new benchmarks in the market for size – it is the smallest on the market, for flexibility – multiple entry and reduced depth for ease of install, and for performance – third party verified to ISO 11801 2nd edition with incredible performance in the field over even the shortest of runs.

Commenting on the new module Simon Robinson, Excel Product Manager said “We have listened to customer feedback and the market requirements and taken our highly popular Excel 6A Screened Toolless Jack and reduced the depth, without compromising on the performance, to allow even greater ease of installation, particularly into confined spaces such as shallow back boxes, floor boxes and anywhere that space is an issue, such as data centre environments”.

The new Excel Category 6A Screened Toolless Jack (P/N 100-181) is compatible with a range of standard and angled shutters and faceplates, and with patch frames with either 16 or 24 port density available in black or chrome. These products will be available from stock from 27th June 2011.

As an addition to the range, the current standard depth, and angled Excel Category 6A keystone jacks will continue to be available.
