Choose The ODF Patch Panel For Specific Situations


When going beyond the failure, fiber optic technicians have to choose the most suitable ODF patch panel for the particular situation. The technician must recognize that not all patch panels are equal when it comes to simple installation, proper termination, and long term maintenance. Fiber is strong, so it deserves some special treatment. For example: If the level of copper damage, then a user will be affected. If the backbone fiber fails, it may cause many users to fail. This is why it is important to use completely enclosed optical fiber to connect the hardware. This is where technicians must choose between using wall-mounted or rack-mounted hardware. The required fiber density is likely to affect the technician's choice between wall-mounted and rack-mounted connections. Many technicians choose to use fiber jumpers. I believe your technician knows what is best.

The wall-mount enclosure is suitable for up to 24 fibers, but the compact, high-density connector expands the number of cables to 144. Wall-mounted enclosure also has the advantages of small footprint. Rack-mounted fiber optic boxes can use a higher number of fabrics can also be used near the communications equipment, and the best fiber optic chassis.

When choosing a rack cabinet, accessibility is a concern for long-term maintenance. The 1U chassis may have an access panel to access the rear fiber, while larger chassis may have a removable back cover with enough space for modification or repair. Strain relief and loop management into the cable must be provided, but management equipment should be small enough to not interfere with fiber access. The front of the enclosure should provide patch cable management with clear front covers and labels for easy removal, addition, and replacement, and to ensure that port identification is not obstructed by patch cords.

It is important to ensure that the modular outlets and circuit traces on the panel are protected from debris that could short circuit the circuit. All cable management systems must be easy to use and maintain to avoid any potential problems.
