Features & Benefits


The Clearfield ODC-200 cabinet can scale from a minimum equipment configuration of 48 copper or fiber subscriber lines to its maximum capacity of 384 combo copper loops or 384 fiber drops. A simple but spacious interior enables field technicians to install common options such as equipment shelves, power and ground cabling, line protection panels, fiber distribution, battery options, and cross-connect modules. A field installable Expansion Module (EXM) provides the ability to grow the enclosure to support more subscriber fiber distribution endpoints, add a secondary or alternative location for an integrated battery box, add rack space to migrate copper loops to fiber drops, integrate a copper cross-connect, etc.


The ODC-200 accommodates a variety of standard options expected in remote cabinets, such as an internal battery enclosure and/or integrated battery box in an EXM, battery warmers, integrated cross-connect (in EXM), and field changeable distribution frames for copper or fiber based access, cabinet risers and vaults, generator connector, etc.


The ODC-200 supports local AC power or remote/line power configurations. An AC powered ODC-200 includes a redundant rectifier with a UL approved load center or with a simpler AC input junction box. The cabinet also provides multiple battery backup options, in-cabinet and/or EXM. The remote powered ODC-200 includes a ±190Vdc downstream power converter (max. 20 circuits) and one or two hold-up capacitors.


The ODC-200 has been designed to comply with a 36 inch height requirement, to allow a minimum intrusive effect in urban, suburban and residential areas. Different riser and vault options are available to allow ease of access in unrestricted height deployments.


The ODC-200 provides an ideal platform for migrating copper access services to fiber access infrastructure and electronics. The mounting frames in the cabinet support an equal concentration of copper pro-panels to fiber distribution frames. Many chassis based architectures provide a common infrastructure for copper (VDSL2) and fiber access (GPON or AE) service line cards. A field installable Expansion Module (EXM) provides additional space to add fiber distribution for a planned and orderly subscriber cutover. When migrating from copper based access to FTTP, the Service Provider can re-utilize the cabinet as an active or passive remote. Active equipment, and power elements in the cabinet like the rectifier shelf and AC load center, battery box and batteries, or heat exchanger door, are easily removed allowing ample space in the enclosure for fiber splicing, termination and distribution, and multiple high concentration splitters, turning the previously active remote into a fiber splice and splitting enclosure.


The ODC-200 has front and side doors and a copper distribution swing frame to provide ample access to the equipment and power system within the cabinet. A heat exchanger is integrated onto the equipment access door as a standard feature.
