Below Grade Fiber Distribution Hub

Nautilus is a patent-pending Below Grade Fiber Distribution Hub. The enclosure is the industry’s first below-grade single handle latching fiber distribution hub. With the Nautilus, you won’t have to worry about curious people or the typical above ground environment hazards like snow lows and lawn mowers that service the road way easements and can damage a or knock down your fiber cabinets.

We’ve designed the Nautilus to protect OSP fiber and provide connectivity for as many as 288 fiber counts. The enclosure even includes a mounting frame, so you can have easy access with lift-assist. Although our engineers designed the Nautilus for you to mount below grade in a vault. If you need to house PON, Feeder/Distribution, or any type of FTTx technology, the Nautilus is a reliable option.

Outdoor Fiber Distribution Hub

The Liberty Fiber Distribution Hub is both high in quality and competitive in price. Its sleek design makes it a great enclosure for rural and residential areas, and it can protect fibers that service up to 576 homes. How exactly does it work? This fiber distribution hub makes a secure transition point from the passive optical network (PON) to the subscriber drop for both pre-configured pigtail or patch-and-splice applications.

What sets the Liberty Fiber Distribution Hub apart are its one-of-a-kind universal splitter panel that allows the customer to use splitters from numerous manufactures without being locked into a proprietary splitter without having to reconfigure choice of splitter. Sleet, snow, ice, hail, and rain don’t stand a chance against these enclosures made out of .125 grade aluminum. You can custom order the hub to be pole or pad mounted.

What to Consider with an Electronic Enclosure Design

While the power of electronic hardware comes from its internal components, the product is typically recognized by its enclosure, the outer shell that encloses fiber-optic products, making them more appealing and user-friendly for the work environment. As a savvy telecommunications company in the age of DIY, you might consider creating your own custom electronic enclosure design with the help of American Products instead of purchasing a standardized enclosure. Although the experts at American Products will ensure that your custom solution is fully functional and engineered to meet your precise standards, in this post, we have outlined a few of the considerations to keep in mind when designing your own custom metal enclosure.

Below-Grade Enclosures

Telephone, CATV, and Internet companies all use fiber optics to transmit data over long distances from a few hundred feet to hundreds of miles! Most of this fiber-optic cabling is located outside buildings, hanging from poles, pulled through conduit, submerged underwater, or even buried underground. Below-grade enclosures help keep those buried fiber-optic cables safe from environmental hazards and employees safe from the dangers of exposed telecommunications equipment.

Climate Control for Enclosures

Telecommunications equipment can be sensitive to extreme temperatures. Protecting this equipment means managing air flow, temperature, and cooling technology. In fact, climate control for enclosures is key to the survivability of the electronics residing there. Whether you’re keeping your electronic systems and components cool in the summer or warm in the winter, outfitting your outdoor enclosure with the appropriate heating and cooling features will help protect your investment.

Types of Steel Made for Your Metal Enclosure

There are over 3,500 different types of steel, each with unique physical, chemical, and environmental properties (source). At its core, steel is comprised of iron and carbon. It is the amount of carbon, impurities, and additional alloying elements that determine the properties of each steel grade. Different steels are produced according to the properties required for their application, and understanding the properties of steel grades can help you identify the ideal material for your next metal enclosure. Be sure consider the environment, space, and shape requirements of your enclosure when deciding which type of steel is right for you.

How to Choose a Fiber-Optic Enclosure

Fiber optics are standard in most contemporary cable infrastructures today. These lines are made of optically pure glass and can carry digital information over long distances (source). Fiber-optic cables have revolutionized long-distance phone calls, cable TV, and the Internet for individuals and businesses alike. For high-density data centers, equipment rooms, and central offices, enclosures can effectively boost network performance, enhance working efficiency, and reduce expenditure. But these enclosures come in many different configurations and sizes. It may leave you wondering how to choose a fiber-optic enclosure that’s right for your business. Let American Products work with you to understand your needs and recommend a product that makes sense for you and your budget.
