Brand-Rex will exhibit its latest cabling-management system for high fibre-density cross-connect environments, at the Data Centre World Conference and Expo, to be held 24-25 February 2009.

The system comprises of a frame, Brand-Rex HDFC Cabinet, cable/patchcord management and fibre cassettes.

It has been designed with features that benefit the end user/operator and the installer/maintainer.

The front of rack allows fibre cables to be guided into management panels through a series of protective tubes, avoiding the need to access the rear of the cabinet.

This installer-friendly scalable system is further complemented by the design of the fibre panels, which utilise swivel and tilt-management trays.

The Brand-Rex HDFC Cabinet accommodates up to 1,824 fibre ports in standard configuration and provides the space required for effective patchcord and cable management.

Measuring 900 x 500mm (45U), the cabinet can be deployed as a standalone unit or bayed back-to-back or side-to-side directly against walls to save on valuable floor space.

When bayed back-to-back, the HDFC Cabinet’s footprint is the same as that of conventional server racks (1000mm deep).

The HDFC also features removable panels and doors at the front, side and rear, which can be closed and locked to secure the equipment.

With integrated front and rear vertical finger management, the cabinet can support up to 912 Duplex LC connector ports when used in conjunction with the new fibre management panel with dual-fibre cassettes.

The new fibre cassettes measure just 1/2 U in height.

They support LC or SC adapters.

They feature a mechanism that allows them to pivot, slide and hinge within the HDFC Cabinet.

This allows technicians to dress and work on spliced fibres without removing the cassette and without compromising live lines on adjacent cassettes.

The cassette offers the control and reliability of the fixed part and the modularity and accessibility of a conventional removable panel.

Lightweight and stylish, the fibre management cassettes are unique in their use of angled adapters.

This design ensures patchcords are naturally trained towards the fibre-management features within the right-hand side of the cabinet – removing the need for additional components.

A 35mm minimum bend radii throughout the fibre management design prevents signal loss or degradation with any fibre type.

The clear, hinging cassette lid also allows technicians to slide the tray out and look in to ensure fibre is managed or spliced correctly.
