Structured cabling system manufacturer Molex has announced the availability of its re-designed 4U specification grade fiber enclosure, designed to assist with the storing and terminating of incoming fiber cable. According to the company, the enclosure's new design provides durable, lockable front and rear doors, as well as a re-engineered enclosure body.
The fiber enclosures are available in 1U, 2U, and 4U options and utilize the company's ModLink cassettes, Fiber Pak adapter plates, and universal splice trays with a capacity of up to 288 fibers. The company says the enclosures have been specifically designed to protect fiber-optic cables and patch cords from damage and to maintain stable optical integrity, while accommodating the needs of both the installer and the end user.
Other features include: external cable strain relief mounting brackets; heavy-duty ball bearing slides to enable smooth and limited extension of the drawer unit, allowing for access while protecting cables from damage; a lightweight, removable aluminum top/rear panel for easy access without the use of tools; dual cable spools for slack storage; copper grounding stud tie down points at each cable entrance point; and rack mount capability that doesn't interfere other mounted equipment.
