Versatile and easy-to-use fiber access closures for FTTH networks

Charles Fiber Optic Sealed Drop Closures (FSDC) provide a versatile, functional and cost-effective solution for FTTH network connections to the subscriber. FSDC series closures are fully-sealed units which can be strand, pole or pedestal mounted; or placed in below ground vaults and enclosures to meet any installation topology. In addition to an express main feed cable, the closure can accommodate up to two branch cables. The closures have build-in adapters to support up to 16 drop cables. FSDC closures feature a compact size for easy handling, yet provide ample room for express fiber storage.

A hardened drop version (FSDC-H) is available with an eight Amphenol H connector interface (Corning® OptiTap® compatible). This hardened drop interface provides a quick, robust plug-and-play fiber drop solution.
