Compact dividers for loose-tube fiber-optic cables

Nov. 28, 2011
The units separate fibers from a cable, essentially transforming them into single loose-tube cables.

A new set of fiber-optic dividers from tde, trans data elektronik, is designed to support loose-tube cables with up to 144 individual fibers. Dividers or "spider fan-out" units separate the fibers in a loose-tube cable and transform them into single loose-tube cables, allowing a direct connector termination, tde explains.

tde's chief executive officer Andre Engle says, "The new dividers are now available for the tde standard trunk cables and will shortly be available for the tML-trunk cables as well. Users have the advantage of a fast plug-and-play installation with minimum space requirements."

The set of dividers includes five different models accommodating 4 to 144 fibers. "The design of the divider is very compact," the company notes. "With a length of 85 mm and a diameter of 40 mm the 144-fiber divider easily fits on one rack unit. The normal glands were deliberately omitted so that the screws cannot be loosened accidentally or opened carelessly. The divider housing is made of sturdy aluminum and offers an excellent tensile strength. Furthermore, the dividers are protected by durable and removable pulling socks."

tML is a modular cabling system comprising modules, trunk cable and rack-mount enclosures. All components of the tML system are prepped and tested in the factory.
