are you saying that we will still be OK since we will be actually using 175ma per trace,
which is 350ma total through our loop?
Are these traces copper or something else?

We have seen Cat5E patch panels (from a vendor who shall remain nameless) blow traces at about 250ma. Some vendors use very thin traces indeed.

From my personal experience, a 12 degree C rise is trivial and would not cause any
PC board discoloration, unless the PC board was operated above 100 degree C.
Or the PC board material is faulty. I wonder if it is FR4.
If the patch panels are being damaged, there must be a whole lot more current involved than 350ma,
or the traces are very thin, or it has a different cause.
