Doesn't this quoted text say that the patch panel PC board must handle,
for example 0.75 amps at a 60 degree C ambient?
If so, that implies to me that it must handle the 175ma.
It would seem to be against the laws of nature to have a trace that fails due to
a current that is too low, right?
Am I missing your point?
Maybe you are saying that the TR-42 letter doesn't actually say the PC board traces themselves
can handle 0.75 amps at 60 degree C, but rather the just connector?
The point is: what continuous current can the cable plant handle as a system reliably?

I'm not sure I agree with what you said.

How does a connector spec that allows almost 10 times our requirement
(1.4A at 40 degreeC vs .175A at the same temperature) imply no problem?
