The fiber optic splice closure is a device for providing space for the spliced fiber. It also provides protection for fused fiber connectors and fiber optic cables. There are two main types of closures: vertical and horizontal. A wide variety of fiber optic connector closure designs are designed for different applications such as antennas, ducted cables and buried. In general, they are usually used in outdoor environments, even underwater use.
The fiber optic splice closure is made of a special industrial grade high tension plastic with a reliable moisture barrier. They are also optimized to resist the aging of materials due to factors in the natural environment such as ultraviolet light. The closure is the hardware used to restore the integrity of the fiber optic cable entering the housing. The terminal is a hardened external connector that allows the addition of one or more fiber optic cables to the housing. In addition, it can be configured for docking off and online off. Docking off allows the cable to enter from one end, while the line is allowed to enter from both ends.
Fiber optic splice closure looks like flat or cylindrical housings. They provide space and protection for fiber splicing and splicing. They can be installed in antennas, buried or underground applications. The horizontal type is higher than the vertical type (dome type). Most horizontal fiber enclosures can accommodate hundreds of fiber connections. They are designed for waterproof and dustproof. They can be used in the temperature range of -40A to 85A, and can accommodate up to 106 kPa of pressure. The case is usually made of high-strength building plastic.
The fiber optic splice closure looks like a dome, so they are also called dome type. They conform to the same specifications as the horizontal type. They are designed for buried applications.
The fiber optic splice closures to provide space for splicing of outdoor fiber optic cables. Fiber optic pallet is also required. They provide perfect protection for external plant fiber cable connectors. The fiber optic connector is closed to receive ribbon and round fiber optic cables. Each type (ribbon or round cable) is suitable for a variety of fiber splice counting requirements. They are widely used in optical communication systems.
