High-Capacity Fiber Distribution Hub for Passive Optical Networks (GPON/EPON)

OHC 288 Optical Hub Cabinet

Outdoor Hub Cabinets (OHC) provide fiber distribution to subscribers from a compact, environmentally protected outdoor terminal. The OHC-288 has been designed with flexibility in mind and support fusion, pre-terminated and field terminated feed and drop fibers for up to 288 subscribers. These PON terminals have space for multiple splitters for incremental growth. They may be pad, pole or wall mounted for placement flexibility and are well suited for multi-dwelling unit (MDU) distribution in centralized or distributed Optical Network Terminals (ONT). 

Everything about the interior of the OHC is designed with the technician in mind. Multiple cable entry locations are positioned at the bottom of the enclosure, allowing flexible placement of feed and distribution cables. Fiber bend radius controls and routing guides ensure cable management and proper slack storage. A splice tray basket secures hinged splice trays that are individually accessible without disturbing previously spliced trays. Charles Fiber Splitter Modules (CFSM) are available with optimized pigtail lengths. 

OHC are constructed from powder-coated aluminum that is both durable and lightweight. The unit can be quickly installed by a single technician. Front and rear access doors are secured with low-profile, 216-tool quarter turn locks and padlock hasps for additional access control. A grounding bus bar with multiple grounding studs is provided.
