Fiber optic patch panels
- Depth 120, 140 or 200 mm
- Height 1–2U
- No sharp edges
- Available with fiber holder or bottom plate
Fiber optic patch panels are used for dividing the fiber optic network e.g. from a house distribution center into cross-connection points on floors and in apartments.
Orbis’ fiber optic patch panels fit into a standard 19-inch-wide rack frame or cabinet. The depth of the panel in the basic offering is 200 mm. The internal structure of the metallic, painted panel is safe and does not contain sharp edges.
The ports in the front plate are numbered 1–24, 1–48, or 1–96 according to the number of fibers. The front plate can be removed without unscrewing it, as the cover can be opened. At the back of the panel, there is enough space to insert the trunk cable.
The panels always include rack mounting accessories, fiber splice holders and a grounding screw.
The panels alone have only the frame and front panel. Height 1U.
Panels with bottom plate
The bottom plate serves as collision protection, cable support and cable storage in the panel. The height of the bottom plate can be adjusted between 1U and 2U according to the storage needs of the cable. The panel with bottom plate can also be mounted on the wall. The bottom plate increases the depth of the panel by 125 mm. The height of the collision protection is 30 mm.
Panels with fiber holder
In addition to the front plate, the panel comes with a fiber holder. The fiber holder is attached to the front of the panel, under the lowest rack mounting screws. The fiber holder reduces the strain on the fiber optic cables and protects the connectors against collisions (e.g. rack doors). The height of the panel with the fiber holder is 1U and the depth is 300 mm.
Fiber holders and front plates
Fiber holders are suitable for panels without a bottom plate. The fiber holder is attached under the lowest rack mounting screws and does not affect the total height of the panel, it remains 1U. The fiber holder reduces the strain on the fiber optic cables and protects the connectors against collisions (e.g. rack doors). The height of the fiber holder is 20 mm.
