Fiber Optical Patch Panel
Fiber optical patch panel is the component used to accommodate and transfer the optical fiber, its function is mainly used to fix and receive optical fiber, end fiber and install optical fiber coupler, it can also protect the connectors of the optical fibers from being damaged, overall, it's a protective device.
Fiber optical patch panel on the market is the same as many other products, they have common features and different points, different shapes, different specifications. Each manufacturer has their own unique style and main features. When choosing fiber optical patch panel, the first factor to consider is whether it is installed on the wall or rack, whether it is used for horizontal systems, trunk networks or centralized systems.
Fiber optical patch panel is generally installed in wiring cabinets, it may also be installed directly on the wall for small installations. If the patch panel is used for a horizontal system, its density is relatively high, centralized fiber-optic wiring technology can form trunk or horizontal channels in buildings, and then use optical cables that pull, interconnect, or splice from the work area to the central distributor. When used in horizontal systems or centralized cabling, the optical fiber can be a two-mode fiber or a four-mode fiber cable. Backbone fiber may be multimode, single-mode or hybrid optical fiber, which typically use connectors to supplement network hardware.
