Legrand | Ortronics Introduces Clarity® High Density Copper Solutions

Maximize Your Cable Density, Reduce Your Footprint

NEW LONDON, CT--(Marketwire - Apr 3, 2012) - Legrand | Ortronics, a global leader in high performance network infrastructure solutions, is proud to introduce our newest high density Clarity jack and panel products. Clarity High Density Jack solutions solve copper density challenges without sacrificing performance.

Ortronics new high density jacks (HDJ) incorporate patent-pending mechanical and electrical advancements, providing greater headroom, as well as a new termination mechanism for easier termination that eliminates errors and reduces labor costs. A new slide-lock assists with quicker installations, while locking the jack firmly in place.

Ortronics smaller HDJ jack footprint allows up to 48 ports of premium Category 6a, 6 or 5e performance in 1 rack unit panel. The new high density jack and panel series require less rack and floor space, reducing real-estate costs. Ortronics HDJ patented, recessed angled modular patch panels combine with Ortronics vertical cable managers to provide up to quadruple the density as standard panels with horizontal cable managers.

The greater rack unit density, made possible with the smaller jack footprint, is supported by Ortronics superior cable management products that have been optimized for cable protection and proper airflow as part of the Layer Zero® solution. This system is ideal for applications like data centers, distribution areas (TIA-942 Standard) or limited space, high density environments.

Clarity High Density Copper solutions are supported by Layer Zero. Layer Zero is the proposed infrastructure layer for the ISO/OSI model introduced by Legrand | Ortronics. Layer Zero -- the Infrastructure Layer™ -- addresses the critical role that the physical infrastructure plays in network performance. Layer Zero solutions encompass the entire physical infrastructure that supports your network, including advanced cable management, pathway solutions, under-floor and overhead systems, aisle containment, racks and cabinets.
