Troughs are an integral part of the FieldSmart fiber management platform. When used properly, troughs provide a protected route path when running jumpers between equipment.

Clearfield has three types of troughs depending on the application. Slack Management Troughs contain radius spools that add additional incremental slack take-up to the fiber management system. Crossover Troughs are used when radius spools are not required. They are simply used to cross from one side of the frame to another or to reach another frame. Active Gear Troughs are equipped with 9 radius fingers (19”) and 11 radius fingers (23”) on the open bottom. It is designed to be placed directly above or below an active gear chassis to manage slack and access of active gear cards and associated fiber ports.
