Merchandise Description
In any fiber optic system splices and connectors are crucial to system operation and must be properly housed in protective structures for the system to continue to operate reliably. Completed splices must be properly organized into splice trays, which are designed to hold specific types of splices as well as to store slack fiber at the proper bend radius. These trays can be housed inside "patch panels," a general term that refers to a family of panels that provide specific features to a fiber-optic designer.

In addition to true patch panels, which provide only cross-connection, splice trays also can be housed in splice panels, distribution panels and LAN panels as well as fiber management bays, splice closures and pedestals. Each type must be properly designed for cable grounding, strain relief and fiber routing requirements and should be chosen to best fit the application. Before the proper type of storage can be chosen, one must understand the function and features of each distinct type.

Just as a chain is only as strong as its weakest link, so are the quality and integrity of a fiber-optic system. Only by carefully planning and protecting your system can you keep your optical chain strong.
