The Microfocus Compact Access products are universal cable- and tube-storage boxes that can be directly buried, and that are especially developed for Access closures like EDSA, TENIO, and OFDC. The handholes are robust, equipped with a closable lid and made of durable polyethylene. The handhole serves as a mechanical protection of optical fiber cable and/or tubes, and the closure. It also ensures good accessibility of the closure in case of future client-connections. In addition, during the engineering phase the handhole can be equipped with extra length of tubes, or with client-cables that can be directly buried (DAC). The Compact Access products are available in a double-skinned version (ZTTH-series) or a single-skin version (UDP). These products are mainly applied in FTTH- and FTTB-networks or for events where a temporary hook-up with an optical fiber network is necessary.
The Compact Access products are suitable for installation on locations according to the European standard EN 124 groups 1 and 2. This under the condition that the Compact Access boxes are placed at least 600 mm under the surface.
Since the application might vary per project, various models are on the market (see pictures):
