With the number of users increases, optical fiber cabling becomes more and more complicated. Rack mount fiber termination box is an important equipment in the optical transmission system. It is usually placed in an optical communication room or rack to manage fiber terminals and implement cabling functions. It is widely used in fiber optic communication room, fiber optic connecting devices to manage fiber terminals and it works as the protector of optical cable termination and line transmission.
In general, there are three types of fiber distribution boxes: rack mount type ODF, cabinet mount type ODF, and wall mount type ODF. Rack mount types are usually 19 inches and come in units of 1U, 2U, 3U, or 4U. U is Unit, which generally refers to the height of the panel device. To be precise, 1U is equal to a rack height of 44.45 mm (1.75 inches) and a 2U mounting height is 2 x 44.45 = 88.88, which is 3.5 inches high. The height of the 3U is 3 x 44.45 = 133.35mm, which is 5.25 inches. The standard was established by the Electronic Industries Association (EIA). The main difference between the IU/2U/4U optical fiber panel is the height and the number of fiber cores.
They come in different sizes and types with customizable panels and trays. Rack mount fiber optic enclosures are divided into different installation methods: drawer type, swing-out type and cover removable type. Slide-out and swing-out types of fiber enclosures are more convenient to use but they are also more expensive. The cover removable type patch panel is cheaper, but not so convenient. The cover removable type rack mount enclosures are the most commonly used ones in the telecommunications industry.
What are the characteristics of the drawer type rack mount fiber enclosure?
1. Split tray design, easy to operate
The drawer-type fiber encosurel uses a split tray, and the module box can be pushed and pulled independently when they are stacked and installed. The mounting area is equipped with a separate pull button lock to prevent slipping. The tray has a sliding and locking function, which can be directly pulled out like a drawer when in use, and can be wired after being locked out, which is very convenient.
2. Compact structure, super density cabling, effective space-saving
The compact design allows for high fiber density and more port numbers to increase cabling density and maximize cabinet space savings. The high-density unique design fiber patch panel, with maximum LC connecting & cabling, adopt the high-strength environmental lightweight material and superior surface treatment technique, which make the panel achieved complete function and various flexible cabling solution.
3. Flexible design, efficient cable management
There is an independent cable management frame at the back of the enclosure, which can easily manage the cable and ensure the air circulation in the space. The independent cassette at the front side is for smart cable management solution. Multi-layer cassette for easy separated operation. The independent cable management frame at the backside is to fix the trunk cable. The redundant trunk cable ensures the cassette move properly.
The drawer-type rack mount fiber termination box is flexible in configuration, easy to install, easy to maintain and manage. It is widely used in patch cord connection, fiber fusion, fiber storage, and high-density MTP cabling management.
