Our HD8² High Density Fiber Optic Patching system is specifically designed for ease of installation and economy of space. The smaller square cassette utilized in our design, versus the typical flat wide cassette, lends itself to a smaller profile. The cassettes come with a snap on pulling eye cap. The pulling eye cap snaps onto the front of the cassette and acts as both a pulling eye and a cover to protect the internal connectors. This design simplifies the installation process of pre-terminated trunked cassettes and as a result can reduce dB loss by reducing the number of termination points throughout the cabling design. Older style designs are cumbersome and either do not allow for pre-termination or, if they are pre-terminated cassettes, they are too large to pull through existing infrastructure.

*The HD8² takes advantage of the US Conec MDC connectors which is a two fiber connector manufactured with proven 1.25mm ferrule technology used in industry standard LC connectors. Two port MDC adapters fit directly into standard panel openings for duplex LC adapters, increasing fiber density by a factor of two. Supporting port breakout architectures for emerging transceiver MSAs, the smaller size will allow a single array transceiver to accept multiple MDC patch cables, which are individually accessible directly at the transceiver interface. The new format will support four individual MDC cables in a QSFP footprint and two individual MDC cables in an SFP footprint.
