Why are Fiber LIUs (Fiber-Optic Patch Panel) need of passive networking?

Fiber Optic Patch Panel

Fiber Optic Patch Panel Aligning the whole networking infrastructure with next-gen networking is the biggest need today. High-level networking equipment are essential to yield better outcomes for every business. For wired communication networks, AE Connect Fiber Patch Panel’s Light Interconnecting Units (LIUs) are used extensively for routing, terminating and managing optical cables. We can easily wall-mount or rack-mount all these Light-Interconnecting-Units for ease of use and it will definitely result in high-quality, consistent fiber management throughout the networking infrastructure.

For high-density Local Area Network or cross-connect patching, Optical Fiber Light Interconnecting Units are an ideal choice. Take your fiber patching to the next level with reliable, high-quality and user-friendly Optical Fiber Patch Panels offered by AE Connect. To make installation and troubleshooting of fiber optic patch panel  connectivity faster, easier and more cost-effective, Optical Fiber LIUs are designed with innovative and advanced features. Our Fiber-Optic Patch Panel’s LIght Interconnecting Units (LIUs) facilitate in organizing fibers and make installation of Optical Fiber Cables (OFCs) easier.

Due to its outer part with anti-corrosive power coating and quality steel, Optical Fiber LIUs come in handy to fix and control the Optical Fiber Cables inside the box and also provide protection to them for their shelf-life. With wall-mounted and rack-mounted manufacturing varieties, Fiber LIUs enable communication between various system inputs and outputs related to lighting control by using central computing devices.

Fiber LIUs are also termed as Fiber Optic patch panel Interconnection Units and thus they reflect the purpose as enclosures and small basic cabinets to inter-connect, cross-connect or splice applications in LAN environments of a networking site. The number of fibers required is the basis to choose the appropriate kind of LIU for an application, whether it is rack-mounted or wall-mounted. Keeping LIU as a prominent accessory for its Passive Networking Solutions, AE Connect crafts Fiber LIU Unloaded Sliding-type. With a facility for Stop as well, the Sliding LIU has swift glide ball-bearing slide-rails for a seamless pull-out & push-in feature.

The compact and small design of the enclosure, easy fiber-expansion facility, operation-friendly front-door design and seamless tackling for splices and terminations, a sliding Fiber Unloaded LIU brings in high-quality fiber management throughout a network.

Compact size of Fiber LIUs from AE Connect makes it perfect for limited space enclosures. MS/Aluminum housing with 7 tank process powder coating makes its surface robust for protection purposes. Our Fiber LIUs are suitable for DIN-Rail and surface mount applications. There are various other features that are important for excellent networking such as a replaceable panel for SC/ST/LC/FC type couplers, allowing a maximum of 2-6 cables entry based on models, Patch or fusion splice field termination standard and Splice holder for pigtail splicing.

Loaded LIU from AE Connect comes with pigtail, adaptor and adaptor plate. Our Fiber Optic patch panel LIUs are suitable for industrial applications due to their compact and ruggedly designed case. Some of the most famous industrial applications are: Oil & Gas Industries, CCTV & Surveillance, Rail Signalling & Control Applications, Process Automation & Control Systems and Power Systems & Controls.
