How to Install A Fiber Optic Outlet

The fiber outlet is for fiber to the home ftth application, it uses fiber optic cables to connect optical network terminal ont at the user's living room. Similar to electrical boxes, the sockets provide a fiber termination point and accessible housing for long term optical fiber service.

A splice tray is used to keep fiber with minimum bend radius and cable management and the maintenance of splice protections. This fiber optic outlet includes two mechanical splice protections (max dimensions: 45x4x4mm) or two fusion splice protections (45x2.2mm or 45x2.4mm). The optic outlet is designed for wall mounting, its dimensions are 80mm x 100mm x 24mm (W x H x D).

Should you buy a fiber optics outlet?

It is highly recommended and the main reason is that it gives you direct access to high-speed internet. Whether you want fiber optic services, download large files or work from home, you always want to invest in a high quality fiber optic outlet. This will give you direct access to fiber networks without a problem. It’s highly efficient and it gets the job done in no time.

Installation Process

Step 1.

• Remove the optic wall plates cover by pressing on one of the side recesses of the base using your thumb.

• Lift the optic cable outlet base cover.

STEP 1 - REMOVE THE COVER

Step 2

• Before mounting the optic wall outlet on the wall, choose the cable entry position.

• For a low entry: go to step 3.

• For a high entry: go to step 9.

• For a rear entrance: please go to step 11.

STEP 2 - choose the cable entry position

Step 3

For low cable entry in the fiber optic wall outlet.

• Remove the pre-cut surface of the base with flat pliers: pinch the U-shaped surface with flat pliers while pulling forward to break it. If necessary, remove burrs with a small file.

• To prepare the tightening of the cable at the entry of the optical termination outlet, insert a plastic collar in the slots provided for this purpose.

STEP 3 - Remove the pre-cut surface of the base

Step 4

• Identify the position where the fiber optic wall jack will be fixed.

• Using a 6mm drill, drill holes 60 apart in the position described above.

• Insert the two dowels provided in the holes, and screw the two screws into the dowels over a few millimeters.

• Place the optical cable wall plate in position, and tighten the screws again to hold the base in position.

STEP 4 - Identify the position

Step 5

• Prepare the fiber connections and make a mark at the end of the access ramp on the base of the PTO. Make another mark at 1.5m and cut the cable at the second mark.

• from the first mark, strip the cable and cut the reinforcement wicks.

STEP 5 - Prepare the fiber connections

Step 6

• Insert the cable at the bottom of the aprons and tighten the plastic collar on the cable.

• Cut off the excess length of the collar.

STEP 6 - Insert the cable

Step 7

• Route the cable element under the retaining lugs and between the base and the optical wall plate splice tray.

STEP 7 - Route the cable element

Step 8

• Close the fiber splice tray and feed the cable element into the splice cassette.

• Make sure that the cable element is held under the retaining tabs.

• Make a mark to the right of the retaining tab on the side of the splicing area as described above. Strip the fiber of its secondary coating from this mark.

• Route the optical fiber towards the central coiling area of the optic splice tray.

• Coil the optical fibers around the central hub, ensure that the fiber is under all the retaining tabs of the coiling tray.

STEP 8 - Close the fiber splice tray

Step 9

For high cable entry in the fiber optic wall plate.

• Remove the pre-cut surface of the base with flat pliers: pinch the U-shaped surface with flat pliers while pulling forward to break it. If necessary, remove burrs with a small file.

• To prepare the tightening of the cable in the entry of the PTO, insert two plastic collars in the slots provided for this purpose.

• Install the 4 port outlet as described in step 4.

• Prepare the fiber cables and make a mark at the end of the access ramp on the base of the PTO. Make another mark at 1.5m and cut the cable at the second mark.

STEP 9 - Remove the pre-cut surface

Step 10

· From the first mark, strip the cable and cut the reinforcement wicks, insert the cable and tighten the plastic collars on the cable. Cut the excess length of the collars.

· Route the cable element around the base hub and between the base and the 2 ports fiber optic socket splice tray.

· Close the splice tray and feed the cable element into the splice tray.

· Make sure that the cable element is held under the retaining lugs

· Follow step 8 to strip and coil the fiber in the optical splice tray.

STEP 10 - strip the cable

Step 11

For rear cable entry in the optical termination outlet.

• To prepare the tightening of the cable at the entry of the fiber optic socket, insert a plastic collar in the slot provided for this purpose.

• Make a mark on the cable about 10mm beyond the end of the base central hub wall. Make another mark at 1.5m and cut the cable at the second mark.

• From the first mark, strip the cable and cut the reinforcement wicks.

• Mount the optical cable wall plate either on the recessed box in the wall or as described in step 4.

STEP 11 - prepare the tightening of the cable

Step 12

• Position the cable and tighten the plastic collar on the cable. Cut the excess length of the collars.

• The cable route element around the hub of the base and between the base and the optical fiber socket splice tray

• Close the splice tray and feed the cable element into the splice tray.

• Make sure that the cable element is held under the retaining lugs

• Follow step 8 to strip and coil the indoor fiber in the splice tray.

STEP 12 - Position the cable

Step 13

Remove excess fiber pigtail and patch cable as described above.

STEP 13 - Remove excess fiber pigtail

Step 14

• Perform mechanical splicing or fiber fusion.

• Install the splice protection in the slot provided for this purpose in the upper part of the splice tray.

STEP 14 - Perform mechanical splicing

Step 15

• Wrap the excess length of fiber on one side of the splice holder in the central part of the splice cassette.

STEP 15 - Wrap the excess length of fiber

Step 16

• Wrap the excess length of fiber on the other side of the splice holder in the central part of the splice cassette.

• Make sure that the fibers are well maintained under all the splicing cassette retaining tabs.

• Close the cover after finish.

STEP 16 - Wrap the excess length of fiber

Step 17

• The fiber optic wall socket is delivered with the label protection flap not fitted.

• Print the pre-glued housing identification label.

• Stick this label in the space provided for this purpose on the socket cover.

• The protective flap can then be fixed by inserting the clips on one side and then the other in the fiber outlet box cover.

STEP 17- label protection flap

Step 18

• To insert a connector, the fittings flap lifts upwards.

• If the connector is not used, the valve, thanks to a return spring, closes automatically.

STEP 18 - insert a connector
