AFL Introduces Drop Cable Storage Solution

Spartanburg, SC - AFL introduces the new Drop Cable Storage Unit (DCSU), designed to store and organize the slack from a fiber drop left at a Fiber Distribution Terminal (FDT). The DCSU can also be used for the organization or storage of any unused multi-fiber drop in the placing of a multi-port terminal from VATS splicers. Manufactured with weather-resistant light weight aluminum, the DCSU contains a keyed bracket mount that prevents twisting and can manage up to 12 fiber drops when laid flat into the raceway with minimal slack required at the terminal. With spring-type lockable fingers to hold fiber drops and cable, no tie-wraps are required.

The DCSU is supplied with strand mount hardware that meets Telcordia® specifications. Optional hardware to mount to poles or in below grade hand holes is available. Galvanized strand clamping devices accommodate 1/4" to 7/16" strand and meet ASTM specifications A153 and B695. The DCSU’s are constructed from aluminum with a baked acrylic enamel finish, and using an optional longer bolt, are stackable.
