        Does the 56PB come with a normally open and normally closed contact?

        No. The 56PB only comes with a Normally Open Contact, as it is a singular operating button and non-latching.

        Can a 56PB2 be mounted horizontally (face up) in a wet area?

        It is not recommended if there is another option as the IP66 rating doesn't allow for immersion in water, which is what happens if water pools in the lid.

        How do you read the color code on the IDC connectors of the Cat 6 Patch Panels?

        Customers may question which color code instructions to follow, 568B vs. 568A. Or they may not understand how to read the color code.

        Product Line:
        Cables and Connectivity Solutions, Cat 6 Patch Panels

        All versions and serial ranges.

        The color code instructions may be confusing.

        For high speed networking 568B is used almost universally.
        If you need help determining how to terminate to the 568B or 568A color code please see the attached file.
