Siemon launches new Z-MAX 45 Category 6A shielded outlet


Siemon has launched its new Z-MAX 45 shielded Category 6A outlet which features a shorter, compact design with the ability to terminate cable at a 45-degree angle, reducing rear depth requirements whilst maintaining proper bend radius.

Z-MAX 45 outlets use a reversible rear cap that enables cable to exit the outlet at a 45-degree angle to accommodate shallow back boxes and wall-mounted raceway applications. With 40% less depth compared to standard outlets, Z-MAX 45’s hybrid design supports both flat and angled mounting orientations. Unlike true 90-degree side entry outlets, Z-MAX 45 also enables side stacking for high-density applications, whilst the plastic bezels prevent contact between metal housings for superior alien crosstalk performance. The innovative linear lacing features combined with the termination tool offers best-in-class termination time whilst significantly reducing installation variability for consistent, repeatable performance.

“Siemon’s new Z-MAX 45 shielded outlets exceed all Category 6A performance requirements and feature the same advanced performance, superior quality and fast termination our customers have come to appreciate with Siemon’s existing Z-MAX outlets,” says Lee Funnell, head of technical services group, Europe, Russia and Africa at Siemon. “The Z-MAX 45 is the optimal 6A solution for tight work area locations where cable bend radius is a concern.”
