Aerial drop closure eases fiber splicing
JUNE 13, 2007 -- Designed to provide a superior protective environment for splicing fiber-optic drop cable in FTTP aerial applications, the COYOTE Aerial Drop Closure allows for low count fiber splicing without the use of a splice tray, say company representatives.
JUNE 13, 2007 -- Preformed Line Products, provider of fiber-optic closures, has introduced the new COYOTE Aerial Drop Closure. Designed to provide a superior protective environment for splicing fiber-optic drop cable in fiber-to-the-premises (search for FTTP) aerial applications, the COYOTE Aerial Drop Closure allows for low count fiber splicing without the use of a splice tray, say company representatives.
According to the company, the closure is made of resilient, thermoplastic resin, designed to ensure performance in demanding FTTP outside plant environments. The main feature of the design is a new splicing platform, which eliminates the need for splice trays--lowering cost and reducing installation time, says Preformed Line Products. The closure kit components include everything needed to splice up to 12 fibers right out of the box. No special tools are required for installation. The easy-to-use grommet sealing system further simplifies the installation process and provides superior protection from the elements, add company representatives.
In a standard configuration, the closure will accept two standard splicing platforms for a total capacity of up to 24 fibers. If required, the closure can accommodate even higher splice capacities by utilizing alternative splice platforms.
The universal mounting brackets included permit pole mounting with straps, strand mounting with strand clamps, or suspension from "J" hooks secured to a pole.
