October 25, 2007 -- Telescent, a provider of fiber-optic interconnect products, has introduced a 3RU, 19-inch rack mount module containing eight of the company's SureLink retractable cable cassettes.
According to the company, the rack mount modules can significantly reduce the challenge of slack cable management for wiring closets and test and measurement systems requiring frequent re-configuration. The need to organize excess cable lengths is eliminated by providing fiber-optic patch cords in cassette form, with each cassette dispensing up to 3 meters of cable.
The rack mountable retractable cable cassettes are available with simplex, duplex or ribbon fiber-optic cable. The cassette design maintains a minimum bend radius of 1.5 inches for jacketed fiber and incorporates a continuous, uninterrupted length of optical fiber to ensure pristine optical transmission.
The company says its retractable cable cassettes simplify the operation, testing and maintenance of the optical network and improves reliability by eliminating the potential to damage delicate delicate fiber-optic cabling.
