Network infrastructure specialist Siemon, has launched a new line of Z-MAX surface mount boxes, designed for space-challenged work area environments.

These boxes are designed to enable the installation of Siemon's category 6 and 6A Z-MAX cabling, category 7 TERA and LC fibre network connectivity.

Created to support Siemon's cabling systems without the need for additional mounting bezels, the new boxes are designed to provide network cabling installers a flexible, fast and reliable way to bring work area connectivity to areas suitable for surface mount installation. 

The boxes are available in one, two, four and six port configurations, and maintain the installer-friendly features and benefits of Siemon's original MX-SM boxes. Like the original, the new Z-MAX surface mount boxes may be mounted via concealed screws, adhesive tape or flush-mount magnets to provide an array of flexible deployment options.  The snap-on cover is designed to securely protect critical connectivity and provides designation areas for colour-coded icons and write-on designation labels. 

Multiple cable management features, including integrated routing posts and cable tie anchor points, are designed to maintain proper cable bend radius and strain relief to ensure a compliant and well-organised installation.

"The new surface mount boxes are ideal for converged-IP and PoE devices such as security cameras, access control points, LED lighting and digital signage in building locations where traditional outlet box mounting locations are unavailable," said Robert Carlson, vice president of global marketing at Siemon.  "And the Z-MAX surface mount box's support of Z-MAX, TERA and LC connectors gives installers a wide variety of performance and media options."

The Z-MAX surface mount box also delivers sufficient cable routing space and clearance to manage a range of cable sizes, including larger diameter 10Gb/s-capable copper options.  These cable management features are supported by multiple cable and raceway breakout entry points on the sides and bottom of the box, making it easily adaptable to nearly any mounting configuration.
