Amphenol’s Z02 Non-Louvered Vertical Broadband Housing provides mounting facilities and security for fiber taps and RF passive components used in Fiber-to-the-Home or coaxial-based access networks. These pedestals are molded from a polyethylene resin designed for outside plant environments, resisting impact, UV rays, and environmental degradation. Network access equipment can be affixed directly to the slotted thru–hole provisions integrated into the equipment mounting stake. In addition, optional bracket kits provide increased mounting flexibility to meet customer-specific needs and applications.
The Z02 pedestal is engineered for self-supporting direct buried installation, with convenience and cost-effectiveness in mind. During installation, bury the pedestal base to the desired depth and backfill. The pedestal has a rectangular design to maximize the usable internal dome space when typically rectangular-shaped equipment is installed. The depth of the dome provides sufficient clearance to support the bend radius of fiber drops exiting a fiber terminal or coax drop cables leaving the RF directional tap. In addition, the dome height offers ample space for stacked interconnected directional taps with splitters and directional coupler housings in a single pedestal.
