R&M introduces modules for single fibre management
R&M is expanding the Prime family with two modules for single fibre management on network level 3.
These modules are compact fibre inserts for the various Prime sub-racks and distribution frames, each with 12 FMTS compact splice trays with optionally 4x shrink (HS) or crimp (ANT) splice contactors. The inserts support the two- and four-fibre concept for FTTH networks.
The distribution modules are called the Prime Single Termination Unit (STU) and the Prime Single Splice Unit (SSU). They are used to provide as many fibres as possible for subscribers in a Prime rack and to administer them securely. The STU fibre unit accommodates plug connectors for up to 48 fibre terminations. R&M uses the connector types LC-D, SC and E-2000.
The SSU fibre unit is used to connect 48 fibres per splice. The sub-racks occupy a 3/4 height unit and can be retrofitted into existing 1U or 3U sub-racks. Together with the inserts, the company developed compact FMTS splice trays for fibre management. These can be mounted tool-free, work like index cards.
Incoming and outgoing fibres are crossover-free in the guides. This allows technicians to assign and easily document the subscribers without any confusion. They can also carry out inspections and maintenance work quickly. A snap-in mechanism fixes the Prime fibre units for splice, patch and maintenance work.
