Ortronics/Legrand Introduces Clarity SNAP

Modular, Pre-Terminated Copper Cabling System Offers High Performance and Quick, Easy Installation

NEW LONDON, CT--(Marketwire - January 14, 2008) - Ortronics/Legrand, a global leader in high performance copper, fiber and wireless structured cabling solutions, will introduce the Clarity SNAP™ pre-terminated copper cabling system at the BICSI Winter Conference, January 13 - 16 at the Gaylord Palms Convention Center in Orlando, Florida. The SNAP system combines the enhanced performance of Clarity connectivity with a modular design that ensures reliability and increases the ease and flexibility of installation and maintenance while dramatically reducing installation times.

Clarity SNAP is an ideal solution for high density applications, especially the growing data center market. The Clarity SNAP system includes traditional six-port module patch panels, individual jack panels, terminated cable assemblies, and workstation jacks. Supporting the above standard performance of Clarity 5E, Clarity 6 and Clarity 10G, SNAP provides superior channel performance, supports easier and quicker installation and reduces/eliminates the need to conduct field testing on the final installed system. Ortronics' pre-terminated cable assemblies feature a unique connector on each end of the cable assembly that is reduced in size, which makes pulling or laying cable in place easier while providing a high speed connection.

Like all Ortronics Clarity products, the RJ45 connections of these patch panels and jacks are precision tuned with Clarity patch cords using Ortronics center tuned technology for significantly improved cross talk and return loss performance that is field measurable in the channel. In addition, the Clarity SNAP system is RoHS compliant (meeting all lead-free requirements).
