A splice cassette is used to insert a bundle of cables, fix the welding point of a pigtail with an optical fiber, and also to protect the backup fiber from breaking. The cassette looks like a plastic tray or box. Despite being lightweight, it is robust and protects cables reliably. It can be white, gray and black.
The internal structure is simple and straightforward. Optical splice cassette consists of holders for cable connections and free space for a cable reserve, which is wound in 2-3 circles with an allowable bend. Fiber optic cable withstands stretching well, however, when bent, the fibers break easily, so it is recommended to install them with a radius of more than 30 mm. The main place of installation of the device is cross equipment. Splice boxes are used only when the fiber optic cable is welded with pigtails.
Installation of the box takes a minimum of time. In the outer part of the cassette there are holes for fastening to the panel with two screws or one central one. Also, the cassette can be installed in an optical cross splicing on a wall or inside a cabinet or rack.
Splice cassette characteristics
An important point when choosing a cassette is its dimensions. The use of compact models with a height of up to 7 mm allows you to install a splice cassette panel in a single-unit patch in a set of 4 pieces, which will increase the number of cable connections by 4 times. For small cassettes with a lodgment length of up to 25 mm, it is recommended to select splicing clamps with a length of no more than 45 mm.
There are models with a rigid lid or a flexible lid made of transparent plastic. Also, the cassette is completed with a table for cable connection marks. A removable splice cassette cover is provided for stacking cassettes on top of each other. With this arrangement, each subsequent cassette acts as a cover for the previous one, and in the optical crossover with splice cassettes, all cable splices will be reliably fixed and ordered.
The capacity of the cassette is determined by the number of holders. The most popular models are for 12, 24 and 32 holders. The 24-port splice cassette can hold up to 48 connections. You can buy a splice cassette with fixed or removable snap-on holders. You can also buy them with an adhesive mount. How to work with a cassette:
put the cable into the box;
lay the supply of fibers;
place sleeves with welded joints in the clamps.
Two sleeves are fixed in one holder. If you need to put an odd number of connections, an additional “dummy” sleeve is placed in the holder with one sleeve. Perforated holes in the I / O allow you to secure the cable harness with the supplied cable ties.
