New, professional Mini Distributor for small networks

(Steinenbronn) Telegärtner Karl Gärtner GmbH has developed a compact Modular Patch Distributor with eight ports. The new MPD8 Mini Distributor plugs the gap between products with six and twelve ports. The eight ports offer the user great flexibility in port combinations. For areas of application with low port density, this saves the users a network cabinet. The MPD8 Mini Distributor enables home, office or industrial cabling to be set up quickly, flexibly and space savingly.

"The new MPD8 Mini Distributor plugs the gap between our products with six and twelve ports.  It meets the demand for a low-cost solution for passive distribution with even greater choice," Marcel Leonhard, Product Line Manager DataVoice at Telegärtner points out. The newly developed MPD8 Mini Distributor from Telegärtner offers the user flexible equipment possibilities. For example, it can be equipped with the Telegärtner modules AMJ-S, AMJ Module K, AMJ coupler, UMJ Module K or UMJ coupler. Combinations are also possible. Another variant is available with IDC piercing terminals on a horizontal circuit board and 8 RJ45 sockets of category 6A in accordance with IEC 60603-7-51.

Enable set-up of structured cabling

The new Modular Patch Distributor MPD8 with its compact dimensions is ideally suitable for home, office and industrial cabling as well as in areas where a low port density is needed and a small network cabinet would be too big. The manufacturer highlights the flexible installation possibility as especially practical. The modified floor plate with an integrated fastening track allows the MPD8 to be mounted directly on the TH35 mounting rail without and additional adaptor. Surface installation is also possible.

The easy to install housing enables structured cabling to be set up for small networks without an additional distributor rack and without great effort. With the new Modular Patch Distributor MPD8 for eight ports, Telegärtner offers a low-cost possibility for setting up networks such as they are increasingly in demand in start-up companies, medical practices, law offices, hostels, smaller offices or also in home cabling for example.
