Do You Really Know Fiber Optic Wall Outlet?

Fiber optic wall outlets are an essential component in comprehensive fiber to the home projects, but do you really understand it? Let’s explore them together with the following information from topfiberbox’s editor.

What is  fiber optic wall outlet?

Fiber wall sockets have characteristics such as high light transmission efficiency, minimal inter-stage coupling loss, clear and realistic image transmission, and zero thickness in fiber optics. Their typical application is as optical input and output windows for low-light image enhancers, playing a crucial role in improving the quality of imaging devices. They are widely used in various instruments and devices that require image transmission, such as cathode ray tubes, camera tubes, CCD couplings, and others.

Types of fiber faceplate:

1.The fiber optic wall box’s external dimensions comply with the international standard 86 type.

2.Suitable for the installation of SC simplex adapters or LC duplex adapters, applied in the working area cabling system.

Technical Features of fiber wall plate:

Optical fiber panel are end-user terminal box that realize fiber-to-the-home solutions, with a reasonably designed internal space. They are used in homes or work areas, completing the access and output of dual-core fibers. They fully meet the requirements for fiber bending radius, protect incoming and outgoing fibers, and provide secure protection for fiber. With an appropriate curvature radius, they allow for a small storage of redundant fibers, realizing the application of FTTH, FTTD (Fiber To The Desktop) systems.

Structure of fiber outlet box:

(1)  Composition of structure

A. The fiber optic wall outlet consists of a front cover, a bottom box that provides space for cable storing, fixing, and devices, on-site connector installation, and an adapter interface with fiber connector protective components.

B. The wall outlet box includes fixed devices for fixing of drop cables and protecting fiber splicing.

C.  The fiber wall plate comes with components for fixing single SC or duplex LC type adapters.

D.  High-quality ABS or flame-retardant plastic materials are used, for the fiber wall socket ‘s front cover, bottom box, and other components.

E.  Adapters port should have dust-proof cap when no jumper is inserted.

(2)  The appearance and size

A. The appearance of the fiber wall plates should be similar or essentially identical to that of electrical and weak electrical panels.  They are with a white color.

B. The design adopt the 86 type, with external dimensions of 86mm × 86mm. And the span between the two mounting screw holes should be 60mm.

C. The indoor fiber  termination box has a complete shape, and all components have smooth surfaces with uniform color. The adhesion of the coating or plating on the surface of metal components is strong, and plastic parts are free from defects such as burrs, bubbles, cracks, voids, warping, impurities, and the like.
