This affordable, high-quality Fiber Distribution Cabinet features a low-profile design and provides an attractive enclosure for rural & residential deployments. Services up to 288 fiber from a single cabinet. It's the perfect transition point from the passive optical network (PON) to the subscriber drop for both pre-configured pigtail and/or patch and splice applications.
The Fiber Optic Distribution Cabinet (FDC) is primarily used to cross-connect fiber optic feeder cables and distribution cables in a Fiber to the Home network. FDCs can also be used as an enclosure for optical fiber splitters in Passive Optical Networks.
An optical fiber distribution cabinet is a special piece of equipment that helps to protect and fix optical fibers in place for communication rooms. This is an essential part of any information room as it also terminates cables and adjusts lines.
The Fiber Distribution Cabinet (also known as the Cross Connection Distribution Cabinet) connects telecom feeder cables to customer-owned cables.
The device is usually floor-standing or wall-mounted and located near the street to serve as an optical node in the access network.
It is typically used indoors to connect incoming Outside Plant (OSP) fiber optic cables with customer premises cables. In some cases, it needs to be mounted on the outside of a building or telephone pole.
The Fiber Distribution Cabinet should be easy to access and not too large. The client can customize the dimension if necessary. If its contents need to stay secure, the box can be locked. The Fiber Optic Distribution Cabinet is used for the fixation, preservation, and distribution of fiber cables as well as the splicing, termination, and patching of fibers.
Installation of fiber distribution cabinet
1. Preset concrete foundation
1.1 Make the concrete foundation according to the size of the cabinet base
1.2 Insert four M12 expansion bolts into the cabinet after drilling holes in the correct places.
drill the holes
2. Install cabinet body
Open the door of the base. Place the cabinet on a concrete foundation. Align the installation holes and preset expansion bolts. Fasten the nuts.
The expansion bolts cannot be fastened because the holes in the concrete foundation are either too shallow or too large.
Solution 1: Adjust the sleeve of the expansion bolt so that it fits snugly into the hole.
Solution 2: Construct a new concrete foundation, and drill the necessary holes.
4. Inlet, Fixation, Stripping, and Protection of Optical Cables
4.1 Open the door plate of the base, and lead the cable into the cabinet.
4.2 Strip cable, cut off the protective tube of cable and clean it
4.3 Wrap the cable at the stripping position with insulation tape or a heat-shrinkable protective tube for proper protection
4.4 Pass the strengthen member through the fixing hole, use a clamper to fix the optical cable onto the related position, and then tighten the screws to fix the strength member.
4.5 Lead the cable from the ground of the fiber cable fixation plate to the protection ground in the equipment room
4.6 Using sealing putty to seal the cable inlet hole well to prevent humidity in the cabinet.
5. Fiber Routing
The routing of the fiber is shown in the below photo
- This product has a capacity of up to 288 fiber, is weatherproof and dustproof meeting IP65, and can be customized to any size. With front and back access as well as a locking feature, this product is perfect for splicing, distribution, and patching.
- With modular design, the 12 fibers Splice and Distribution Integrated Trays as well as splitter trays can be easily installed and maintained. All components are available in module form for a modular configuration, which reduces delivery time and installation while still lowering costs and easing maintenance.
- The fiber cable management system is adaptable and modular, allowing you to customize it to your needs. It's also compatible with all types of PLC splitters. The enhanced fiber management provides simplified routing and termination. There are pre-connectorized fiber pigtails installed for rapid deployment.
- The modules are individually removable so that construction and maintenance are easy. Additionally, the pad and pole mounting options allow for deployment in convenient locations.
- This product is fully customizable for outdoor applications. It has triple-walled sides, a rear panel, and a door.
- This cabinet has been designed with humanized management and operation in mind, with a focus on detail. The corners of the cabinet are formed using an arc-shaped mold, and the surface is electrostatically sprayed
- The polyester body is reinforced with thermosetting fiberglass, making it enduring against climate change. The device has a capacity of 864 distribution fibers, which helps protect against accidental or malicious damage. Plus, it’s easy to operate and access thanks to the front accessibility panel.
