Gepco Unveils New HSB Fusion Splice Box

DES PLAINES, ILLINOIS, April 12, 2010 — Gepco International is introducing its new HSB Fusion Splice Box. HSB provides a solution for the deployment of hybrid fiber cable in a compact chassis that is easy to install and terminate in the field. Specifically designed for hybrid camera applications, the HSB features configurable cable ports and a custom fusion splice tray for use with 9.2mm SMPTE hybrid cable, discrete electrical and fiber cables, or the HDC3R three-channel hybrid cable.

Internally, the optical fibers terminate within the custom fusion splice tray of the HSB—using the included splice heat-shrink and cable management accessories—while the electrical elements terminate with quick-disconnect, six-position, plastic AMP connectors. For the external component breakout, the HSB series utilizes metal, twist-and-lock ST and 5-pin connectors for a secure and reliable exterior mating interface.

“With the addition of the HSB to the Gepco product line, we now offer the option of tying in hybrid fiber connections at any point in your system,” said Glen Powers, Director of Sales, Gepco® Brand Products.

To permanently install the HSB Fusion Splice Box, an optional base kit can be added to mount the HSB splice box to a wall or floor, or it can be rack mounted with an optional rack panel. For up to eight channels for splicing, two HSB boxes may be mounted in a single 3RU rack panel.
