I've got an ADC QCP 96 pt tt punch patchbay. On the back panel of the patch bay, the top row from left to right is numbered 1, 49, 2, 50, 3, 51 and so forth. The bottom row from left to right is numbered 25, 73, 26, 74, 27, 75 and so forth. My question is does the back panel mirror the front exactly? Does "1" correspond to the upper left input on the front of the patchbay and "25" on the lower left input? Or is "49" the lower left input on the front of the patchbay?
Channel one is upper left. Channel 49 is under that channel being the first channel bottom left. The reason they are setup that way is if you want to set the normals, you only need to punch a wire from #1 to #49 right next to it etc.
96 Point Patchbays: To make Full Normal wire from Blue #1 to Blue #49 ; wire from Blue #2 to Blue #50 From Orange #1 to Orange #49; From Orange #2 to Orange #50 etc.
To make Half Normal wire from Red #1 to Blue #49 From Black #1 to Orange #49; wire from Red #2 to Blue #50 From Black #2 to Orange #50 etc.
