Optical Cable Introduces Fan-Out Kits For High Density, Small OD Fiber

Optical Cable Corp. (OCC) said its new Fan Out Kits aid the installation of individual fiber connections that are capable of withstanding repeated deployments in challenging indoor or field conditions.

As the number of indoor and outdoor fiber optic network installations continues to proliferate – particularly with mobile broadcasting applications – OCC said the need to terminate high-density, small-OD fiber cables into multiple individual terminations is becoming more pronounced.

To meet these requirements, OCC has introduced customizable Fan-Out Kits designed for the point-to-point cabling of multiple fiber strands for a variety of applications, including audio production, video production, satellite uplink connections and data networks.

The Forge Fan-Out Kits, which may be self-installed or factory pre-installed on a cable assembly, enable the installation of stripped cable fibers to be secured individually into modular fan-out insert pucks — each with up to 48 inches of furcation tubing pre-secured in the puck housing.

With 4-, 6-, 8-, 12- and 24-fiber models available, these new kits also provide a broader range of fiber counts to meet specific needs.
