What should be considered in the selection of fiber optic distribution frame?
In recent years, in the actual work of optical communication construction, through the use of several products to compare, we believe that the selection of fiber optic distribution frame should focus on the following aspects.
A. CORE CAPACITY
A fiber optic distribution frame should be able to make the maximum number of cores of fiber optic cable on the shelves of the bureau, where possible, the interconnection of more than a few fibers optic cable on a rack to facilitate the deployment of optical paths. At the same time, the wiring frame capacity should correspond to the common cable core series, so that in use can reduce or avoid the waste of fiber optic distribution frame capacity due to improper matching.
B. THE TYPE OF FUNCTION
Fiber optic distribution frame as the terminal equipment of the fiber optic cable line should have four basic functions.
1, Fixed function – After the optical fiber cable into the rack, its outer sheath and strengthen the core to be mechanically fixed, add ground protection components, end protection processing, and grouping and protection of optical fiber.
2, Capacitive splicing – Function fiber optic cable out of the fusion with the tail cable, the excess fiber coiled storage, and the fusion splice protection.
3, Deployment function – The connector attached to the pigtail cable is plugged into the adapter, and the optical connector on the other side of the adapter to achieve optical docking. Adapter and connector should be able to plug and unplug flexibly; optical path can be freely deployed and tested.
4, Storage function for the rack between the various cross-connected optical connection line to provide storage, so that they can be placed neatly and regularly. Fiber optic distribution frame should have the appropriate space and way to make this part of the optical connection line alignment clear, easy to adjust, and can meet the minimum bending radius requirements.
