Fiber Optic Products

An optical component chassis is mounted in a rack and holds optical components modules. Fiber jumper management is provided from the front of the optical component module to the interbay cable management panels. Optical components are splitters or WDM’s that are cassette or metal LGX housing based. Optical components can be housed in the flexible Clearview® Cassette or in one of our four sizes of LGX style modules. The LGX and FieldSmart® modules require an Optical Component Chassis to house the modules in a frame. The 1RU splitter “pizza box” does not require a separate chassis and is available in 19” or 23” (482.60 mm or 584.20 mm)mounting versions.
