November 18, 2008--For high performance and flexible copper or fiber-optic cabling in server rooms and data centers, Dätwyler Cables has developed a modular distribution system that is available in 1U and 3U heights, in stainless steel or with black lacquering, and equipped with distribution boxes to terminate the thin trunk cables.
Copper distribution boxes provide RJ-45 ports at the front and optionally a Telco adapter or LSAplus contacts at the rear. Fiber-optic boxes provide an MPO adapter as rear input and an internal fiber duct to the front side fiber-optic ports (e.g., LCD, SCD, and LSH-C; APC variants are also available upon request). This system lets you complete up to 48 pre-terminated fiber-optic or copper ports per
Two types of trunk cables are available for copper data cabling. The first
one consists of six halogen-free, shielded and very thin twisted pair cables
with 50-pole Telco connectors mounted on both ends. This solution allows a 1
Gbit/sec data transfer at a maximum distance of 60 meters. The second consists of six twisted pair cables, which are connected to a box, including circuit board and LSAplus contacts on both ends. Using this solution, it is possible to transfer up to 10 Gbits/sec with a maximum permanent link length of 90 meters.
The fiber-optic solution is based on a standardized 12-fiber MPO connector
system. Trunk cables consist of thin Optoversal cables of maximum 144 fibers, which are connected to the required number of MPO plugs (e.g., 12 plugs for 144 fibers) on both sides via a distributor.
By using pre-connected, very thin trunk cables, this distribution subsystem allows for simplified changes or extensions that can be performed without interruption of operations.
