Addressing the convergence of IT with the video and audio operations associated with its core markets, Bittree has announced the launch of the DSFB124NL Series, its patch panel enclosures. The feed-through, slide-out enclosure solution caters to customers managing inter and cross-connections within IT closets and data centers, as well as in TV and radio facilities, recording studios, sports and live event venues, and commercial AV architectures.
The first product in the series, the DSFB124NL-ST, accommodates high-density, simplex ST-to-ST connections. A second version, the DSFB124NL-LC will follow later in 2018, to accommodate duplex LC-to-LC connections. The DSFB124NL series includes steel gliding rails for easier access to connections, offering steady-locking positions that simplify access between ports as technicians move, add or make changes to the fiber-optic network. The enclosure comes with grommets, cable strain reliefs, and bends radius guides. The product is built using a cold-rolled steel construction with a durable black powder-coat finish, ensuring a highly durable and reliable product design. The fold-down, clear-red acrylic front and rear doors additionally enables visual inspection of the patch interface to monitor connections and performance.
“The DSFB124NL enclosure is built with connection to a core switch and/or routing system in mind, is modular with removable inserts, and facilitates management of the entire ecosystem,” said Bryan Carpenter, senior sales consultant, Bittree.
