Access closures are accessible casings in which optical fiber cables can be spliced together. These closures are deployed in the metro part of the optical fiber network, close to the client connections of end users or to termination points such as cameras. The closures are extremely user-friendly thanks to well-established gel-seal technology, and a smart fiber management system. Infraconcepts offers Access closures in a great number of variants and configurations.
The FIST-GCO2 has a FLAT-version in which a maximum of 144 fibers can be installed. In this closure, cables are covered with oval and round shrinking ports, as well as with the well-established gel-seal technique. The TENIO-closure is a complete wrap-around closure that offers the same in functionality as the FIST-GCO2. The TENIO, however, is more compact, and all cables are covered here by using divisible gel-seals.
The choice for the type of closure is decided by the cables. The shrinking technology is usually applied for conventional cables as they are more robust and have a thicker coating. Gel-seal technology is applied for mini-cables. Exposing these thinner cables to the sources of heat of the shrinking technology is not advisable.
The compact TENIO-closure can also be installed in the new Microfocus µDP casing from Infraconcepts. The closure is extremely fit to quickly create splicing and routing off (window-cuts) the optical fiber network. The optical fiber cables within the network may both be loose-tube and uni-tube, up to a maximum of 288 fibers.
