Brand-Rex has launched a new shielded tool-free jack designed to revolutionise termination times. Available in Category 6 and 6A, the new jack is not only one of the simplest and quickest to terminate but its PCB design excellence ensures exceptional electrical performance as standard.

Announcing the new launch Eddie McGinley, Product Manager at Brand-Rex said: "We've reduced the installation time by up to half that of our competitors’ products and our own previous Brand-Rex tool-free jack. A novice would expect to terminate the new jack in two minutes whereas an experienced installer can easily achieve 90 seconds including cable preparation. We project this can be reduced even further, cutting labour time by up to 50 per cent."

“Ease of installation, not just speed, was part of the design brief which was largely based on feedback received from customers and installers in the field. Having launched one of the very first tool-free jacks back in 2006, we have the advantage of more field experience and knowledge than any other manufacturer. We firmly believe that the new tool-free Snap-In Jack is now the most advanced on the market, the simplest and most intuitive to install and the easiest to terminate or re-terminate.” For a video demonstration of just how easy it is to use go to here.

"And of course in the Brand-Rex tradition, the new jack offers significant headroom above TIA/EIA, ISO and EN standards as well as superior electrical and mechanical quality and longevity".

With its compact footprint the new tool-free Snap-In-Jack fits easily into standard panels and outlets as well as high-density patch panels such as the Brand-Rex 48 port 1U panel. Making it ideal for data centre and enterprise environments where space is at a premium.

The new jack has been designed specifically to require a very low closure force for fast but robust termination and is fully certified by an independent third-party test house to all relevant standards.

Part of the 25-year system warranty the new Brand-Rex tool-free Snap-In-Jacks offer significant project savings and total peace of mind for Gigabit and 10 Gigabit installations.
