Product Details

The FAC 400 is an environmentally-controlled enclosure constructed of powder-coated aluminum. The FAC 400’s equipment bay features a 19” vertical equipment rack, accommodating up to 4RU of active electronics equipment. The FAC 400 provides up to 192 internal fiber distribution ports for subscriber PON deployments along with splitter capacity. The FAC 400 accepts local AC power and uses a door mounted integrated air-to-air heat exchanger and DC-powered fans to cool the equipment inside the cabinet. A separate, vented, under-cabinet compartment houses optional batteries.
