Considering Zone Cabling?
Be aware that 25 pair Category 5 cabling solutions come in different configurations.
If you are running trunk cables from one wiring closet to another, from a wiring closet to a group of workstations or any application where you are converting from the RJ21 back to RJ45 connections on both ends, the AMP Champ System 5 is a good solution. This is a simple plug-and-play solution where you can install pre-terminated trunk cables and either patch panels or distribution boxes at both ends. You now have an AMP Category 5 zone cabling solution.
On the other hand, if your application requires a direct connection from your RJ21 zone cabling to your 100 Base Tx equipment, a Lucent 525 Plug solution is what you need. This product line offers a full range of solutions, including patch panels and octopus cables as well as RJ21 to RJ21 trunk cables enabling this to be an appropriate solution for both applications.
Control Cable Inc. offers both solutions. We manufacture custom length trunk and octopus cables here in our facility which enables us to offer you the quality and fast turn around time that we are famous for.
