Installation process and selection method of optical fiber distribution frame


We use the optical fiber distribution frame frequently now. Its function is mainly to accommodate the optical fiber and the components for the optical fiber active transfer, and then to fix and store the optical fiber, terminate the optical fiber and install the optical fiber coupler. It can also protect the optical fiber joint and prevent If it is damaged, how should the optical fiber distribution frame be installed and selected? Now let's learn about the installation process and selection method of fiber optic distribution frame.


The optical fiber distribution frame on the market is also the same as many products. They have common features and different points, different shapes and different specifications. Each manufacturer occasionally has its own unique style and key features. So when we are choosing the fiber distribution frame, the first factor we must consider is whether it is mounted on the wall or on the rack, is it for horizontal system, backbone network or centralized wiring?

Optical fiber distribution frames are generally installed in the distribution cabinet, and may also be directly installed on the wall for small installations. If the distribution frame is used in a horizontal system, its density will be relatively high. The centralized fiber optic integrated wiring technology can form a backbone or horizontal channel in the building, and then use it to draw, interconnect or splice from the work area. A fiber optic cable to a central splitter can create this channel.


When used in horizontal systems or centralized wiring, the optical fibers can be dual-mode optical fibers or quad-mode optical fiber cables. Backbone fibers can be multimode, singlemode, or hybrid, and these typically use connectors to complement the network hardware.


The number and size of optical fibers entering the distribution frame should be considered in order to ensure that sufficient holes of suitable size are produced to accommodate the cable glands. If small form factor (SFF) connectors are used, a 1U patch panel can accommodate up to 24 duplex connectors or 48 fiber bundles. So how to choose the right patch panel? What do we need to consider?

The first thing to consider is the amount of fiber optic cable remaining: a certain amount of fiber optic cable should be reserved to ensure that a fiber-strength film is created on the patch panel chassis. This prevents the fiber from being pulled out of the patch panel and avoids excessive stress on the cable.


The second is its protective performance: the fiber optic distribution frame should provide sufficient protection for the connector to prevent accidental contact.


Finally, its suitability: the fiber optic patch panel should be able to allow the removal of existing connectors and the addition of new connectors or fibers, and it must also be able to store and identify non-connector fibers from horizontal or trunk cables.


Through the study of the installation process and selection method of optical fiber distribution frame, I believe that everyone has a deep understanding of this product. ZR Cable focuses on the research and development and sales of optical fiber communication products. Optical communication products include standard product optical cables, optical fiber jumpers Cables, mpo/mtp data centers, optical fiber distribution frames, etc., at ZR Cable you can buy all optical communication products in one stop.
