choosing fiber optic patch panels

by:ShunDing     2020-01-12
When overcoming a fault, fiber optic technicians must select the most suitable patch panel for a specific situation.
Technicians must recognize that not all patch panels are created equally in terms of ease of installation, proper termination and long-term maintenance.
The fiber is very strong, so special processing is required.
For example: if the horizontal copper cable is damaged, it will affect one user.
If the backbone fiber fails, many users may be disappointed.
This is why it is critical that the fiber is connected to the hardware using a fully enclosed connection.
This is where technicians have to choose between using wallsInstallation or rack-
Installed hardware.
The required fiber density is likely to affect the choice of technicians between walls
Installation and rack-
Install the connection.
Many technicians choose to use optical cables.
Trust your technicians to know what is best. Wall-
The installed housing is suitable for up to 24 optical fibers and, despite its small form factor and high connector density, can extend the number of fiber optic cables to up to 144. Wall-
The installation housing can also reduce the floor area requirements. Rack-
The installed fiber housing can be used with a higher number of fabrics, or depending on the proximity to the communication equipment, in the communication equipment, the rack-
It is best to install the fiber case.
The 1U housing can handle up to 24 fiber optic cables with ST or SC connectors or up to 48 fiber optic using small form factor connectors.
For additional protection, the 2U to 4U chassis can be used to handle up to 144 fiber connections.
The 12 fiber MPO connector can speed up the installation time and increase the concentration of the connected hardware.
The box for factory termination and testing is responsible for transferring the fiber of the MPO connector from ST, SC or MT-RJ connectors.
The MPO box can double the possible concentration in the rack
Installation case-
Up to 72 fiber optic in 1U chassis and up to 288 fiber optic in 4U chassis-
These fibers are ideal for high-density applications such as data centers and storage area networks.
Accessibility is a problem with long-term maintenance when selecting racksInstall the housing.
The 1U housing can have a contact panel to touch the rear fiber, while the larger housing can have a removable back cover with plenty of room for replacement or repair.
Strain Relief and loop management for incoming cables must be provided, but the management equipment should be small enough not to interfere with access to the fiber.
Cable management of jumpers should be provided on the front of the case and clear front covers and labels should be set to facilitate movement, addition and change, and to ensure that the port identification is not obscured by jumpers.
Because the copper patch board needs to be strong enough, do not bend too much when the cable is punched.
The rolling edges on the sheet metal of the panel help to make the panel rigid.
The copper patch panel shall provide 24 ports at a 1U height or 48 ports at a 2U height.
It is very important to ensure that the modular jack and circuit traces on the panel are protected from debris that may be short-circuited.
To avoid any potential problems, all cable management systems must be easy to use and maintain.
