The FieldShield Assist Module is specifically designed to speed up installation time and ease deployment of pushable fiber within FieldShield microducts. Powered by any cordless drill, the FieldShield Assist Module enables FieldShield pre-connectorized and blunt end assemblies to be pushed quickly, at a constant and controlled speed, from the network access point to the end subscriber. Both lightweight and portable the FieldShield Assist Module is ideal for both internal and external use and can be mounted on a tripod, set on a flat work surface or hand-held when space is a premium.
The FieldShield Assist Module is a hand-held, cordless drill-powered tool used to push FieldShield Fiber into unoccupied FieldShield Microduct. The Assist Module incorporates an integrated clutch that engages when resistance reaches a threshold that could damage the cable. This helps to eliminate potential catastrophic damage due to buckling or folding of the fiber. Cable can be pushed 500 feet within OSP rated duct through four 90 degree turns or 300 feet when pushing in plenum duct for an inside plant environment. When used in conjunction with the integrated pull string that comes standard in all FieldShield ducts, push/pull methods can provide longer distances.
Kinking and folding-proof due to integrated clutch, buckling of cable and catastrophic damage is eliminated providing a worry-free installation for pushes up to 500 feet for OSP rated cables and 300 feet for inside plant installations utilizing FieldShield Plenum microduct. When used in conjunction with integrated pull string that comes standard in all FieldShield ducts, push/pull methods can provide longer distances. Glare resistant integrated counter provides installer with accurate, instant feedback on distances pushed.
