Amphenol has expanded the Fiber Indoor Demarcation Box (FIDB) product line to include a plastic design that supports high-density fiber connectivity and splicing for indoor wall mount applications. This Plastic FIDB minimizes grounding requirements while still maintaining the same craft-friendly features which installers have come to rely on in the metal FIDB products such as the innovative ribbon storage technique that delivers valuable time-savings in the field.
This plastic FIDB is provided with a pre-installed cable stub that enables reduced field installation time by eliminating the need to splice inside the FIDB. The cable can be either plenum or indoor/ outdoor rated. The cable stubs are available in lengths ranging from 100’ to 1000’.
This compact plastic demarcation fiber enclosure is lightweight for easier handling. It can accommodate SC & LC style adapters and mass fusion splice sleeve holders. The maximum splice capacity has been increased up to 12 mass fusion splices (144 fibers). Incorporated in a layered, split-housing design are separate carrier and customer areas with individual security bolts and padlock hasps. A new integrated repair feature has been built-in to the carrier side to help facilitate repairs in the event of fiber breakage in the field.
