R&M, the global Swiss developer and provider of
cabling systems for high-quality network infrastructures, is adding new
options for equipping fiber-optic distributors. Distributor housings in
two sizes are now available for 19″ standard racks and street cabinets.
The KombiMODULE can be purchased in five and ten height units (U). The 5
U solution is new to the range and offers space for up to 288 plugs or
576 strictly splice connections, while the 10 U model can accommodate up
to 576 plug and 1 152 splice connections.
The two-part KombiMODULE housing enables all desired combinations of
splice and patch units. KombiMODULEs can be equipped with ODF patch and
splitter inserts as well as distributor trays from R&M’s Single Circuit
Management (SCM) system. R&M recommends E-2000™*, SC, or LC adapters for
the plug connections as required.
Both the 5 U and 10 U versions of the KombiMODULE fit perfectly into all
19″ infrastructures. Together they form the “structural components” of
the R&Mfoxs range for public fiber-optic networks. The two distribution
modules also fit into all 19″ rack spaces, whether at major distribution
sites, in data centres, in street cabinets, or in FTTH infrastructures.
The new ODF modules are also available as a strictly cable-to-cable
splicing solution for up to 576/1 152 fibres. It consists of two
separately lockable, swivelling splice units with stress-free,
low-movement fibre routeing. It offers convenient handling with direct
access to the SCM trays and fibres. Fibres can be transferred easily
from the left-hand to the right-hand splice unit via a direct
The SCM tray system from R&M enables straightforward fibre management.
The carrier tray can be folded out and serves as a work table during
installation and maintenance. A minimum fibre bending radius of 40 mm is
guaranteed in all versions.
