Title: POWER EXTENDER FOR RACK CONTROLLER
Abstract:
A communications patching system includes a rack controller and a controller power extender. The controller power extender operates to extend capabilities of the rack controller that monitors one or more patch panels via a panel bus. In certain examples, the rack controller is connected between the rack controller and the panel bus and enables the rack controller to support an increased number of patch panels by preventing a voltage drop at patch panels located far from the rack controller.
