Description

The FieldSmart FEC is built on a modular platform scaling 288 fiber splices at a time. Multiple entry/exit points allow for multiple distribution and OSP fiber sheaths to enter into the FEC from top, bottom, or sidewalls transitioning from conduit, overhead fiber tray or raised flooring. A removable splice block, holding twelve 24-fiber splice trays, allows the user access and prep away from the cabinet. Intuitive buffer tube and subunit slack routing prevents cable tie-in’s with a clockwise routing scheme allowing quick and easy re-entry after initial deployment or to add additional capacity. The FEC can be ganged together, in modular fashion, allowing scalability up to 864 fiber splices and beyone if vertical real estate is available.

Each cable entrance plate will support cable diameters up to 1 inch. Lockable cupboard style doors allow for easy access with minimal swing clearance required for tight aisle clearances.
