DIY wall patch panel

    At the stage of upgrading the home laboratory, it became necessary to have at least 10 pieces of RJ45 sockets on the table. I didn’t want to buy a bunch of overhead outlets, and the finished wall patch panels did not please us either with their appearance and installation method. The idea was born to solve the problem on their own. This kind of thing

    turned out. Who cares how it turned out - I ask for a cut.


    Actually, in the bins of the motherland, a standard patch panel was found (quite cheap, by the way).

    The patch panel has 4 units of 6 outlets, each such unit can be dismantled.

    I think the idea is further clear:

    1. We take a plastic box of suitable sizes (I took 60x40).
    2. In the case cover, cut a rectangular hole of the desired size, dremel quickly and simply, with a knife longer and harder.

    3. Insert the module into the box lid, drive in the cables.

    4. We get the result.

    It is clear that it would be possible to cram the patch panel into the box entirely, but this is a rather big load on the box itself and I don’t need such a density of ports at one point, as well as 4 blocks were spaced along the entire length of the table, which is more convenient (personally for me).
