HD8 Fiber Patching System Featured in Cabling Magazine


HD8² cassettes are rear entry loaded and can be “hard wired” utilizing terminated optic fiber cable and a Heyco® strain relief. A pulling eye cap facilitates the installation of the cassettes through ladder rack, innerduct, or raised floor applications. The internal strain relief and eye ring are used in conjunction with fiber optic cable Kevlar to provide strength. The cassettes can also be loaded with internal fiber harnesses connected via a separate terminated trunk cable.


  • Reduced installation time with integrated pulling eye - 75-85% time savings
  • Space savings of up to 100% per cassette over traditional MTP/MPO cassettes
  • Lower db loss because of the reduced connection points
  • *Shuttered LC couplers reduce dust and increase eye safety

*The HD8² takes advantage of Senko's dustproof LC adapter with internal shutter in its cassette design. The internal shutter is actuated when you plug the LC patch cable into the adapter. The shutter automatically opens as you insert the LC connector, and closes as you extract it. Due to the special design of the shutter, it will not touch the ferrule end face when you insert a connector, thus preventing end face damage. The internal shutter prevents eye exposure to lasers and provides protection from dust and other contaminants.
