Large network installations can be cumbersome and time consuming for IT network managers, with workers needing to open hundreds or even thousands of individually packaged jacks. Fortunately, new Leviton GreenPack® packaging effectively streamlines installation and reduces material waste.
GreenPack is available for Atlas-X1® Cat 6A and Cat 6 UTP and shielded jacks, and for eXtreme® Cat 6A UTP jacks. They hold 12 jacks in individual, clear pockets. The jacks can be removed quickly, with remaining connectors and components staying well organized. This saves time at the jobsite, enabling much faster unpacking and deployment.
Will GreenPack packaging save you money on labor? Absolutely. In a typical 10,000 jack installation, using GreenPack provides a three percent total project cost savings in materials and labor. Workers will spend less time fiddling with opening individual plastic packages, and more time on actual termination, speeding up the time it takes to complete a project.
Plus, GreenPack packaging is a win for the planet. The packs are an environmentally sound alternative to individually packaged jacks, wasting a lot less plastic. Additionally, the corrugated cardboard sleeve and PET plastic packaging are 100 percent recyclable – helping to keep our oceans safe from excessive plastic waste.
GreenPack features secure corner tabs that open and close easily and create added protection for all jack components. A see-through window allows for quick product identification.
Available in three jacks colors for better network planning, 12-jack GreenPack provides the right number of jacks to match patch panel configurations (12 ports = 1 Pack, 24 ports = 2 Packs, 48 ports = 4 Packs). Additionally, Atlas-X1 and eXtreme jacks are compatible with all Leviton QuickPort® products.
Leviton jacks, including those sold in the new GreenPack, are available through the company's extensive distribution network.
