Rack Mount Fiber Enclosure Designs and Applications

Posted on by FS.COM

Rack mount fiber enclosure shall be designed to house, organize and manage fiber terminations, connections, and patching in all applications, which provides the highest fiber densities and port counts in the industry contributing to better rack space utilization and minimizing floor space. The designs of rack mount fiber enclosures are various, such as removable cover, slide-out and slide-out, tilt-down drawer. Different designs may have different applications, such as for LGX cassette only, for fiber adapter panels only and for both fiber adapter panels and HD cassette. Based on FS.COM rack mount fiber enclosures, the knowledge of rack mount fiber enclosures designs and applications will be provided in this article.

Removable Cover Rack Mount Fiber Enclosure for LGX Cassette Application
Designed for LGX cassette applications, FS.COM FLG series removable cover fiber enclosures serve as a transition point for pre-terminated MTP interconnect or backbone cable patched to active equipment in data center server cabinets or switch racks. They can be used for fast, reliable patch field creation in pre-terminated cross-connect or inter-connect main distribution areas (MDA) or horizontal distribution areas (HDA). The enclosures provide high patch field densities with the FLG-1UFMX housing 3 LGX cassettes for up to 72 fibers in 1 RU and the FLG-4UFMX housing 12 LGX cassettes for up to 288 fibers in 4 RU. Removable cover design allows for easy field termination of connectors or installation of pre-terminated solutions, providing increased access between ports, thus enabling the ease of moves, adds, and changes for improved reliability and cost savings.
