The optical fiber distribution cabinet can also be called the optical fiber distribution box. It is an upgraded version of the odf optical fiber distribution cabinet. It is also used for optical fiber termination, optical fiber fusion, optical fiber wiring and optical fiber storage, but it uses the tray inside the box to slide down. Out-of-the-box design, so that both the adapter panel and the high-density MPO/MTP wiring box can be installed. It is a common wiring tool for local area networks and data centers, and can ensure long-term reliable network transmission.
Fiber Distribution Cabinet have various specifications, and the common ones are rack type and wall-mounted box type. In U or RU, it refers to the height of equipment designed to be installed in a rack, usually in 1RU, 2RU, 4RU sizes. It has a slide-out and push-pull drawer design, which not only provides flexible wiring but also protects optical fibers well. It is an ideal wiring management solution for data centers.
The optical fiber distribution cabinet makes the termination of optical fiber cables easy to manage. It is mainly used for the introduction of optical cables, the cross-connection of optical fibers, the storage of optical fiber jumpers, and the wiring output. It can realize optical fiber fusion splicing, optical fiber termination, and optical fiber adapters. , connector and cable connector integration.
When the fiber density increases, how to effectively manage and organize a large number of patch cords becomes extremely important. A good optical fiber distribution box will need to have the function of easy management of patch cord changes. The optical fiber distribution box can effectively terminate, protect and manage the optical cable, and is an important equipment in the optical network transmission process.
The structure of the fiber optic distribution cabinet
Before we start installing fiber optics in a fiber optic distribution box, we should first understand its construction. The following is an example of a simple fiber optic distribution box to introduce its structure, as shown in the following figure: The front panel of this fiber optic distribution box can be installed with 3 adapter panels, and there are two spools in the box to manage the optical fibers in the box.
