HD8²High Density Fiber Optic Solution

CI&M The HD8² High Density Fiber Optic Patching system is specifically designed for ease of installation and economy of space. The smaller square cassette utilized in our design, versus the typical flat wide cassette, lends itself to a smaller profile. The cassettes come with a snap on pulling eye cap. The pulling eye cap snaps onto the front of the cassette and acts as both a pulling eye and a cover to protect the internal connectors. This design simplifies the installation process of pre-terminated trunked cassettes and as a result can reduce dB loss by reducing the number of termination points throughout the cabling design. Older style designs are cumbersome and either do not allow for pre-termination or, if they are pre-terminated cassettes, they are too large to pull through existing infrastructure.

HD8² cassettes are rear entry loaded and can be “hard wired” utilizing terminated optic fiber cable and a Heyco® strain relief. A pulling eye cap facilitates the installation of the cassettes through ladder rack, innerduct, or raised floor applications. The internal strain relief and eye ring are used in conjunction with fiber optic cable Kevlar to provide strength. The cassettes can also be loaded with internal fiber harnesses connected via a separate terminated trunk cable.

HD8 BrochureBenefits:

  • Reduced installation time with integrated pulling eye - 75-85% time savings
  • Space savings of up to 100% per cassette over traditional MTP/MPO cassettes
  • Lower db loss because of the reduced connection points
  • *Shuttered LC couplers reduce dust and increase eye safety

*The HD8² takes advantage of Senko's dustproof LC adapter with internal shutter in its cassette design. The internal shutter is actuated when you plug the LC patch cable into the adapter. The shutter automatically opens as you insert the LC connector, and closes as you extract it. Due to the special design of the shutter, it will not touch the ferrule end face when you insert a connector, thus preventing end face damage. The internal shutter prevents eye exposure to lasers and provides protection from dust and other contaminants.
