Product Details

CraftSmart TAP-Base

The CraftSmart TAP-Base is a NEMA 4 splice-only drop termination point that allows for any type of fiber drop cable to be spliced to an included 1-meter fiber pigtail and plugged into the supplied coupler. This method allows the pre-terminated FLEXdrop entrance fiber to be easily plugged into the TAP-Base and routed into the home, or if needed, a pre-marked drill point in the back of the enclosure can be used to route the entrance fiber directly into the home. The 3.5 x 6.3 x 1.1 inch footprint of the CraftSmart TAP-Base enables providers to discretely place the fiber termination on the side of the home.

CraftSmart Fiber Outlet

The CraftSmart Fiber Outlet can accommodate 4 entrance points for 3mm cable and up to 4 SC adapter ports. The splice tray is hinged and easily removable for non-splicing applications. This small indoor enclosure provides both bend limiting protection and a secure termination point to connect the entrance fiber to the included equipment jumper.

CraftSmart FLEXdrop

FieldShield FLEXdrop cable has an OSP-rated PVDF jacketing that allows for transition of FLEXdrop from the OSP environment directly into the inside plant, with the added benefit of being UL listed for plenum applications. FLEXdrop can be used as a building wrap at turn-up, maximizing installation efficiency.
