The four drawer OFDM is the means by which splicing and patching modules are assembled in a 19-inch rack (Type 92 or 84 rack). It fits a standard 19-inch rack, is 10 rack units high and contains four sliding drawers. Each drawer can accept either splice or patch drawer equipment. This enables the unit to house up to 240 or 288 fibres with four separate splice tray assemblies (Part No’s: TC248S (5 trays) or TC248S-72A (6 trays)). It can also be used with patch drawer equipment to provide a splice and patch module, or be used as a designated patch module. It has a removable, clear protective cover, which clips into place. A range of standard patch panel assemblies also fit directly to the drawer. Standard is a 36 position A/SC patch panel (Part No: TC248P); available separately.
