Mitsubishi International, Optical Products Division, is offering a cable identifier system to solve disorganized, tangled cable rack conditions. PatchSee patch cords incorporate two plastic optical fibers built–in to standard Cat5, Cat6 and Cat6a patch cords along with LED light injection. This enables users to identify and secure both ends of a patch cord without tracing cables or disconnections causing “line-down” conditions. PatchSee also defines various cable line functions by providing 16 color-coded, removable clips that snap onto the RJ45 connectors. The clips negate the need for maintaining varied color patch cord lengths and reduce inventories. The color-coded clips eliminate any need for cable labels.

PatchSee patch cords are suited for data processing centers, networking, office automation, industrial control and similar panels.
