Panduit launches fibre optic cassettes for universal systems

Panduit Europe has launched a new range of fibre optic cassettes with universal polarity, thereby eliminating the need to deploy different cassettes or patch cords to maintain proper transmit-to-receiver continuity throughout a system.

The internal wiring of universal cassettes allows for use of a single cassette and patch cord on each end of a traditional cassette-trunk-cassette link. The cassettes are available in the HD Flex system, QuickNet MTP system, and QuickNet SFQ Series MTP system, enabling deployment in various applications.
