The new Gepco HMD Modular SC Breakout Rack provides a field terminatable solution for the deployment of hybrid fiber connectors in an expandable chassis system. With internal cable management and component SC plus electrical element breakout, the HMD allows for all electrical and fiber termination to occur within the chassis, streamlining and protecting the cable breakout.
Unique to the HMD, the SC breakout at each position allows for the hybrid connectors to be replaced, serviced or expanded via a quick disconnect. The SC termination of the interconnecting cable between HMD racks can be field terminated with epoxy and polish, quick cleave, or fusion splice SC fiber connectors. To facilitate cable management of SC fusion spliced connectors, each breakout position also features an additional splice holder clip within the HMD chassis.
For flexibility in cable options, the HMD features configurable rear cable ports (six plus two) that accommodate a wide range of cable types and combinations. The HMD can be terminated to a variety of combinations of HDC920 9.2mm hybrid fiber, discrete electrical and fiber cables, or up to two, HDC3R three-channel hybrid cables.
All HMD configurations come with six electrically isolated connector positions for expandability. Each position can ordered or expanded with SMPTE plug, SMPTE socket, or Neutrik OpticalCon ® format connectors, with future connector modules available as they are released.
