Environmentally-Protected Enclosure Designed for Maximum Flexibility and Multiple Fiber, Copper or Coaxial Applications

Charles’ new CFIT-Flex Series of universal enclosures were designed around the principal of “flexibility.” These versatile enclosures may be wall, pole, strand or pedestal mounted and configured to meet a variety of fiber, copper or coaxial distribution applications. With a universal backplane and interchangeable feed and drop cable port plates, CFIT-Flex are especially efficient at meeting FTTX deployment challenges regardless of splicing technique, fiber type or the use of pre-connectorized cable.

The CFIT-Flex Compact is the first offering in this new series of non-metallic, universal enclosures. Constructed of lightweight and rugged polycarbonate, it provides long-life environmental protection. An optional swing-out 24-port fiber bulkhead provides technician-friendly access to feed and drop cables without disturbing existing subscriber connections. Internal cable management and bend radius controls maximize cable protection. Simple to install and secure, the CFIT-Flex Compact is truly a flexible enclosure designed to ensure lower total cost of ownership in all distribution network deployments.
