Packaging and Bundle

The packaging of the NRP-MC851 unit is not very fancy, but it draws attention and it is very sturdy. The unit inside could have been better protected as there isn’t anything besides a bubble bag protecting the PSU, but the thick walls of the cardboard box should keep it safe. The grey exterior of the cardboard box could even be used as a magazine or paper holder. Inside the package you will find a couple of pouches for storing the cables you aren’t going to use, a detailed manual, typical 3M screws, a couple of cable ties and a warranty card. There is also a bag with all of the modular cables inside. All of the cables share the same red-black sleeving and have coloured connectors depending on their type.
