Telecommunications equipment supplier Jasco’s Webb Industries has introduced cable connectors manufacturer and distributor Telegärtner’s new, modular rail-mounted fibre-optic distributor, the STX distributor, which can be extended according to actual needs.
The STX rail-mounted distributor offers a vast portfolio of different modules that accept 12 fibres and ST, SC and LC adaptors as well as a high-density LC module with 24 fibres. All modules are available for OM1 to OM4 multimode and OS2 single-mode fibres.
The company adds that the adaptors are mounted at a 45º angle so users can conveniently plug patch cords in and out using a minimum of valuable space. Horizontal cables can enter the modules from four different directions. This gives the installer the opportunity to decide on site about the best cable routing, which offers users maximum flexibility.
“Customers can select from a large variety of modules for preterminated breakout and mini-breakout cables. This includes stackable modules with an integrated hinged splice cassette and pigtails stripped ready-to-splice, as well as modules for preterminated fibre-optic cables,” says the company.
The company explains that the stackable modules allow quick and easy additions and changes at any time. A vast portfolio of modules with different adaptors offers the flexibility that is needed in today’s industrial networks.
Moreover, the company mentions that, with dimensions of just 35 215 155 mm (two-module width), the compact modules make the most of available space, enabling users and installers at the same time to conveniently patch and store any fibre slack. The modules can be mounted on TH35 rails as specified in DIN 60715, as well as on flat surfaces or walls, the company concludes.
