Fiber optic patch panel is an integrated unit for fiber management, these equipment functions are to fix and manage the fiber optic cables inside the box as well as provide protection. Patch panel provides interconnect or cross-connect capabilities between two units of outside plant, riser or distribution cables, and optoelectronic types of equipment.
A fiber optic patch panel usually contains two parts, the compartment that contains fiber adapter panels (detachable), and the other compartment that contains fiber optic splice trays for fusion splicing and spools for excess fiber routing.
In most of the fiber optic patch panels, all of the adapters are of the similar type and in some fiber optic patch panels adapters are with various types as per the customer requirements at the workplace. Most of the fiber optic patch panels are designed to support either fusion spicing or direct termination of the fibers. Fiber optic patch panels can accommodate hybrid fiber adapter to connect two different types of fiber connectors. Also, conversion cables can be used to connect two different types of adapters on either end.
Fiber optic patch panel is commonly used to fix and manage fiber optic cables inside the box. Fiber optic patch panel, also known as fiber distribution panel, provides cross-connect and interconnects capabilities for splicing & terminating optic fiber cables, pigtails in fiber access network. Fiber patch panels are ideal for high-density LAN interconnect or cross-connect patching. Highly reliable Fiber patch panels offering user-friendly features that take fiber patching to the next level. Fiber enclosure is designed with innovative features that make installation and troubleshooting of fiber optic connectivity faster, easier and more cost-effective.
Robust steel construction and electrostatic spray technic powder coating ensure the highest level of protection for sensitive components inside the enclosure. Fiber patch panel adds an extra element of security and reliability to your network system. Multi-port cable entries allow greater flexibility for integrating practically any network component.
Types of fiber optic patch panels
- DinRail fiber optic patch panel
These are the fiber enclosure that can mount to standard 35mm DIN rail frame. These patch panels are suitable for mounting in DIN Rail panels where there is space constraint inside PLC’s. Because of its compact and ruggedly designed case, it is suitable for industrial applications.
Din rail enclosure can be mounted in a cabinet with other din rail equipment. Din Rail mount enclosures keep the patching in close proximity to the active equipment it serves and minimizes cable management in the cabinet.
2. Wall Mount Fiber Optic Patch Panel
Wall Mount Fiber Patch Panel/LIU is designed to support fusion splicing or direct termination of the fibers. This modular enclosure provides cross-connect and interconnect capabilities for splicing and terminating outdoor cables & FTTH drop cables in fiber access network.
Our Wall mounts fiber patch panels are made with 16-gauge mild steel with corrosion-resistant seven tank process powder coating to provide excellent protection for the inside fibers. Fiber wall enclosure provides an extensive range of fiber management systems (FMS) fully compatible with industry grade fiber adapters. FTTH series wall mount fiber terminal box is designed to provide quick patching, storing fiber terminations. It is also used for Indoor applications in medium-size multi-dwelling units (MDU’s) for FTTx.
Our wall mount fiber optic patch panel integrates three main functions of fiber splicing, cable winding & storing, and interface management. The enclosure adopts good quality metal sheets & surface electrostatic spray technique, which is offering safety & good endurance performance. It is the ideal design for building & campus networking.
3. Rack Mount Fiber Optic Patch Panel
Rack-mount fiber patch panels provide cross-connect and interconnect capabilities for splicing & terminating OFC cables, pigtails in fiber access network.
Rackmount din rail and splice enclosures in data cabinets are available pre-loaded with any connector interface required. These 19-inch Fiber enclosures are ideal for high-density LAN interconnect or cross-connect patching. Unisol’s Highly reliable Fiber patch panels offering user-friendly features that take fiber patching to next level.
