The Excel Category 5e Low Profile Unscreened Keystone Jack, is a reduced size toolless termination RJ45 socket. The reduced size allows for multiple cable entry directions to be accommodated when this jack is mounted in a standard depth back box. This permits many mounting options including flush shutters at the outlet as well as more common angled shutter used with keystone jacks. The low profile design allows this jack to fit in the Excel 0.5U 24 Port Patch Panel resulting in a maximum port density of 48 per 1U. The socket itself is housed in a high quality fire retardant plastic cast housing, which opens at the rear in a butterfly manner to reveal the IDC termination points.
