CAT5e Patch panel with 110-style punchdowns
 
Any suggestions where (in Ottawa) I could find a CAT5e patch panel with 110-style punchdowns on one side and RJ-45 on the other?

Our builder's rough-in brought three unterminated CAT5e lines to the media box (for my audio zone control panels), and so I'm planning to use a patch panel to connect between them and my distributed audio system. I planned to punchdown the ends on the one side and then just make up a few R-J45-terminated patch cables and jack-in. Problem is, I can't find the kind of panel anywhere with the punchdowns on one side and jacks on the other.

A bonus would be if it has the pegs so I can mount it inside the media box.

Any suggestions? I miss Halifax where I had all my favourite local suppliers for this kind of stuff.

My friend gets his stuff from Reset Electronics near the Ikea.

Nedco (industrial), Reset (ikea), Graybar (east end i think), Network Supply (collonade), Comtest (queensway & bronson). Lots of places!

Open House makes a telephone panel like you describe. I just have no idea retail stores in Ottawa who would supply it.

How about a decent Canadian online supplier? I don't mind waiting a few days for it to arrive.

I personally find Hammond of decent quality, and the company HQed in Guelph. http://www.hammondmfg.com/

Any electronics shop in Ottawa will carry their product, I'm sure.

I just put a Hammond rack in my decore center the other day. Very nice quality stuff, however they are not a retailer.

I honestly have no real idea who carries any of these things at retail anymore.

I don't know about specific products but I have shopped from AARtech (http://www.aartech.ca/) before.

Hehe I just got an order of Insteon stuff from them. I didn't think to check if they have the patch panels. Thanks, I'll take a look! :)
