Preloaded Fiber Panels and Patch Panels Provide Adjustable, Slack-Free Cables
Chicago, IL (July 15, 2021)—Tripp Lite, a global manufacturer of power protection and connectivity solutions, makes it easy to customize the length of fiber cables in server racks.
Tripp Lite's new Preloaded Fiber Panels and Patch Panels mount in rack enclosures and contain coils of fiber cable to connect servers, switches and other equipment in fiber optic networks. Installers can unwind the exact length of cable they need, and the remainder of the cable stays stored in the panel. The result is a neat, organized installation without cable clutter. If equipment is moved, the length of each cable can be adjusted as needed.
With a single purchase, installers can have the fiber cables they need without the hassle of measuring distances and ordering individual cables. The preloaded fiber panel solutions contain either singlemode or multimode cables and are available with different configurations and combinations of connectors. The 1U panels have cables with connectors on both ends. The 2U and 3U patch panels have LC ports hardwired to one end of the cables.
"Matching equipment in high-density racks with custom cables can be a complex, time-consuming task," said David Posner, Tripp Lite's Vice President, Connectivity and Peripherals. "Tripp Lite's preloaded fiber panel solutions simplify installations and give installers the flexibility to make changes on the fly without waiting for new cables. Installers get the cable length they need, when they need it."
