Product Details

The FAC 3200 outdoor cabinet is an environmentally-controlled enclosure constructed of powder-coated aluminum. The FAC 3200 cabinet’s equipment compartment features a 23”, 18RU equipment mounting rack front and rear, accommodating up to 32RU of active electronics equipment. The FAC 3200 provides up to 576 internal fiber distribution ports for subscriber PON deployments along with splitter capacity. The FAC 3200 accepts local AC power and uses either a door mounted integrated air-to-air heat exchanger and DC-powered fans or an integrated DC-powered air conditioner to cool the equipment inside the cabinet. A vented, integrated-cabinet compartment below the equipment chamber houses optional batteries.

A configurable fiber insert is available for the splicing bay of the FAC 3200 enclosure. The FieldSmart 576-port FAC Fiber Insert provides up to 576 internal fiber distribution ports and complementary splitter mounting and advanced fiber management.
