Z24 Generation II Low-Profile Housing with Extended Depth Base

Next generation CATV network upgrades, including Remote PHY (R-PHY), MAC-PHY, Node + 0, Node + N, etc., are placing increasing thermal and space demands on outside plant pedestal housings. New R-PHY optical nodes are being engineered to dissipate 160 Watts of power; significantly greater than prior generations of pedestal housings were designed to accommodate. Pedestals that cannot accommodate 160W can result in network outages or shorter equipment lifespans due to over-heated equipment.

The Amphenol Z24 pedestal housing was engineered specifically to meet the demands of next generation CATV network architectures and equipment. It is built to withstand the harsh elements typically found in outside plant deployments. Leveraging our expertise in outside plant enclosure engineering, thermal analysis, design and testing, the Z24 is capable of supporting R-PHY compliant equipment across all regions in the USA.
