How do patch panels work and what types does Neutrik offer?

Patch panels usually consist of two rows of standard ¼” (A-Gauge, EIA RS-453 standard), longframe ¼” (B-Gauge, BPO316 standard) or bantam jacks in the front and various wiring or connecting possibilities on the back and can be mounted into 19” racks. All Neutrik patch panels offer various normalling possibilities between top and bottom row. It’s common to wire (or connect) the equipment to the back of the panels and use patch cables to switch and route the signals from the front.

Basically Neutrik offers two different patch systems:

  • Professional patch panels with permanent wiring
  • Semi-professional feed through patch panel with ¼” jacks at the front and back (NYS-SPP-L1)
