The fiber optic patch panel is the wiring connection equipment between optical cable and optical communication equipment or between optical communication equipment. So what are the types of the fiber optic patch panel?
The unit type fiber optic patch panel means multiple units are installed on a rack, and each unit is an independent fiber optic patch panel. This kind of patch panel not only retains the characteristics of the original medium and small fiber optic patch panel, but also improves the space utilization through the structural deformation of the rack, which is a common structure of large-capacity fiber optic patch panel in the early days. However, due to its inherent limitations in space provision, there are certain inconveniences in operation and use.
The drawer type fiber optic patch panel also divides a rack into multiple units, and each unit is composed of one to two drawers. When welding and adjusting wires, pull out the corresponding drawer to operate outside the shelf, so that there is a larger operating space, so that each unit does not affect each other. The drawer is equipped with a locking device in both the pull-out and the push-in state, which can ensure the stability and accuracy of the operation and the safety and reliability of the connecting devices in the unit. Although this kind of fiber optic patch panel cleverly provides a larger space for the operation of the optical cable terminal, it still cannot provide the greatest convenience in the storage and placement of the optical cable, just like the unit type. This kind of rack is currently the most common form.
The modular structure divides the fiber optic patch panel into a variety of functional modules. The fusion of optical cables, wiring, storage of connecting lines and other functional operations are completed in each module. These modules can be combined and installed in a common rack as required. This structure can provide maximum flexibility and better meet the needs of communication networks. The introduced modular high-capacity fiber optic patch panel utilizes unique structures such as panels and drawers to make the operation of optical fiber welding and wiring more convenient; In addition, vertical cabling channel and intermediate patch panel are used to effectively solve the problem of the distribution and storage of pigtail optical. Therefore, it is the most popular kind of large-capacity fiber optic patch panel, but its cost is relatively high.
The selection of fiber optic patch panel is an important and complicated task. People in all localities should fully consider various factors according to the specific local conditions. And only on the basis of careful understanding and repeated comparison, can we choose the one that best meets the current needs and future development of the fiber optic patch panel.
