8p FO CableDrum

unmanaged, yet rugged

The rugged cable drum with an integrated fibre switch can establish an IT connection in portable communication systems over a distance of 100 m up to 550 m. The Multimode OM 2 50/125 fibre optic cable on the drum is used to create outdoor-suitable connections and transmit communication and data signals. The power for the integrated fibre switch is supplied by an IEC socket located on the front of the drum. The fibre switch has 8 optical interfaces that can be fitted with different transmission rates (100-FX and 1000S-X). The fibre LC interfaces meet the IP65 requirements (spray water/dust) in accordance with DIN EN 60529. The cable drum is equipped with a brake to prevent unwinding during transport.

Impact-resistant plastic ensures resistance to harsh environmental influences.
