The Black Box® Fan-Out Kit is specifically designed to enable you to terminate fiber loose-tube cables.
Loose-tube distribution cable protects each strand of fiber in its own buffer sheath. Although the buffers are ideal for protecting each strand of fiber in multifiber cables, they're too narrow to terminate with standard fiber optic connectors.
The Fan-Out Kit solves that problem. Just strip the buffer sheath off the cable and thread each strand through the fan-out assembly. You don't need any more space than you would for any other cable termination or any additional hardware. And because the fan-out assembly snaps together, you don't even need epoxy!
The fan-out is color-coded to match your fiber cable's color scheme and it's available in lengths of 25 or 36 inches (63.5 or 91.4 cm) for 6- or 12-fiber cables.
- For field termination of loose-tube cable at cross-connects.
- Color-coded fan-out tubing makes it easy to keep track of your connections.
- Snap-together unit eliminates the need for epoxy.
