Fiber Optic Products

At first glance, Clearview xPAK looks like any other LGX compatible package, but upon closer inspection, technicians will see a new generation of innovation in the delivery of terminated fiber assemblies. Clearview xPAK is single-piece element in which all required components for fiber protection are integrated. It is shipped flat and simply folds to shape.

The Clearview xPAK supports two, four or six ports of patch and splice (Clearfield’s in-cassette splicing solution) configurations. The compact 4” x 5” solution is perfect for landing small count terminations at the fiber delivery point. The kit comes with everything you’ll need: flat cassette, adapters, 2, 4 or 6-fiber 900 μm ½ meter assembly, splice sleeves, strain relief boot, grommet tape, zip ties and universal mounting bracket.

Priced to allow field personnel to carry quantities of Clearview xPAK Cassettes in the field, xPAK is shipped flat and unassembled. At the deployment site, the technician will take the xPAK device, and following pictorial user instructions, will assemble the device to match his field requirements. Integrated into the footprint of the device, is an industry-compatible splicing tray, which is then surrounded with fiber protection elements that support either a two, four or six port fiber assembly as well as a range of optical component devices.

Clearview xPAK is the ideal fiber management device when up to six fibers (or us to 12 LC) are landed or an optical component device is deployed in a remote location. Application environments include cell backhaul, business class service delivery, node segmentation, fiber exhaust in a field pedestal, sub-station turn-up or fiber-to-the-desk deployment.

Configurations

Patch and Splice (Clearfield’s In-Cassette Splicing Solution)

The 6-fiber splice tray molded into the xPAK tray is all that is needed to deliver an integrated patch and splice application. 2, 4 or 6-fiber 900 μm ½ meter assemblies are pre-terminated, pre-loaded and slack stored inside the xPAK ready for splicing.

Patch Only

Regardless of the industry standard adapter or cable construction, the pre-terminated length of OSP or IFC cable is pre-loaded within Clearview xPAK for patch only configurations.

MPO Plug-and-Play

MPO to industry standard connectors allows for plug-and-play by mating MPO to MPO with preterminated multi-fiber OSP or IFC.

Optical Components

Optical components can be integrated into the Clearview xPAK.
