24 or 48 port blank Systimax patch panel

24 or 48 port blank Systimax patch panel

Hello, I'm in search of blank 24 port or 48 port patch panels that I can insert the Systimax MPS 100E jacks in one at a time as needed instead of buying a regular loaded Cat 5 or Cat 6 patch panel. There are occasions when installation would be easier if I could just terminate the jack outside of the panel, and then just simply snap it in place from the back of the panel....I would like to think it would cost less than a loaded patch panel since it would only be a piece of metal with square holes punched out... I have searched the web but I'm coming up empty. Anyone out there familiar with what I'm asking?.
Thanks Richponder

Have you checked out Belden products? I think they have empty 24 and 48 port panels.

Check with Graybar.

It is worth noting that Commscope, who purchased the Systimax product line from Avaya a while back, has rebranded a percentage of Systimax items as Commscope. I don't know if that includes the blank keystone jack panels though.

Train your Google-fu :)

Search for "modular patch panel" and you'll find bunches.

Thanks to all for the reply's, I have submitted a email to Commscope for a item or part number but have not heard back from them yet. The blank modular panel I'm in search of is one that the Systemax MPS 100 E jacks will fit into, They are not the Keystone or Leviton or the ICC brand name type. I currently have about 500 of MPS 100E jacks in stock and thought If I could find a modular panel that they would snap into I could use them. They are what we used to know as Lucent jacks branded by Lucent Technologies back in the day.

If you have an Android device, you can download a Commscope app that contains their current catalog which includes Systemax products. I suspect that there are versions for Apple devices.

Thanks to all for the reply & info..Commscope technical support got back to me and they were extremely helpful. They provided me with the correct part number for the modular blank 24 port panel... [Commscope # M2000 ] which will take my systemax MPS 100E jacks.

Thanks Again
