AFL Modifies Poli-MOD® Module, Incorporates “Shutter” Technology

Spartanburg, SC – AFL modified the LC version of its Poli-MOD patch and splice module to include an automatic “shutter” for increased dust protection. As LC connectors are inserted or pulled from the module, the shutter protects the contents from dust particles that may interfere with connections.
“Built-in shuttered adapters are a perfect fit for the Poli-MOD and add another level of convenience for our customers,” explained Tom Jeffers, product manager for AFL’s inside plant division. “These adapters provide exceptional dust protection and increase safety, complementing the versatility and ease-of-use of these products.”

AFL’s Poli-MOD modules provide a unique method of securing cable and leverage a snap-in splice sleeve cradle to securely manage single and ribbon fiber arrangements. The Poli-MOD accommodates up to 24 fiber interconnections in an industry-standard, single-slot LGX® 118 footprint with the capacity to outfit a standard 4RU rack-mount panel with up to 288-fiber interconnections.

Available in SC, LC, ST and FC connector arrangements, the Poli-MOD features organized fiber routing and multi-directional cable entry access. The module is also offered in an arrangement that supports DAS (Distributed Antenna System) networks by eliminating an interconnection point while providing a splicing environment for rack and wall-mount panel applications. Poli-MOD modules are also used in telecommunications closets, data centers, customer premise, LAN/WAN and much more.

AFL offers a host of connectivity products including connectors, cable assemblies, rack-mount and wall-mount panels. For additional information about AFL, its products and services, visit
