Product Details

The FieldSmart FxDS Bulkhead is a high density, low maintenance bulkhead for use in a 19” (482.60 mm) or a 23” (584.20 mm) frame or cabinet. Utilizing the Clearview® Cassette, FieldSmart FxDS Panels are intelligently designed to provide the user with superior fiber access and craft-friendly, radius protected, fiber management for routing and deploying fiber jumpers.

Stand Alone Bulkhead in a 19” or 23” (482.60 mm or 584.20 mm) Frame

When you already have the frame and want to add just a panel or two of incremental fiber
management, the FxDS can be configured with front protection.

Stand Alone Panel in an OSP Active Cabinet

Make the crossover into the OSP with the identical product. Patch only environments are supported without additional components.
The common architecture saves you time and money in reducing inventory costs and shorter training period.

Stand Alone Panel in a Data Cabinet

When you already have a data cabinet and simply need to add fiber management, the FxDS is configured without the front protection block,
providing all the fiber protection you need without the added cost.
