What is ODF Optical Distribution Frame

What is ODF Optical Distribution Frame



ODF optical distribution frame is a high-density, high-capacity design product. It has the characteristics of beautiful appearance, reasonable distribution, easy search, easy management, convenient installation, and good operability. ODF optical fiber distribution frames are mainly divided into: 24 cores, 36 cores, 48 cores, 72 cores, 96 cores and 288cores.

The Role of ODF Optical Distribution Frame

ODF optical distribution frame is an important supporting equipment in the optical transmission system. It is mainly used for optical fiber splicing, installation of optical connectors, adjustment of optical paths, storage of redundant pigtails, and protection of optical cables. The safe operation and flexible use of communication networks play an important role. Now optical communication has been widely used in long-distance trunk lines and local network relay transmission, and fiber optics has also become the development direction of access networks. Everywhere in the construction of new optical fiber networks, large-fiber optical cables are used as much as possible, which puts higher requirements on the capacity, function, and structure of ODF optical distribution frames.

Features of ODF optical distribution frame



In recent years, in the actual work of optical communication construction, by comparing the use of several products, we believe that the selection of ODF fiber distribution frames should focus on the following aspects.

1.The Fiber Core Capacity of ODF Box
An ODF optical distribution frame should be able to complete the rack with the maximum number of cores in the office. And several optical cables with more interconnections can be placed in a rack to facilitate the deployment of the optical path. At the same time, the capacity of the distribution frame should correspond to the series of general-purpose optical fiber cores. This can reduce or avoid the waste of capacity of the ODF optical distribution frame due to improper matching.

2.The Functions of ODF Optical Distribution Frame



The ODF optical distribution frame as the terminal equipment of the optical cable line should have 4 basic functions.
①After the fixed function optical cable enters the rack, its outer sheath and reinforcing core shall be mechanically fixed, ground protection components shall be installed, end protection treatment shall be performed, and optical fibers shall be grouped and protected.
② After fusion splicing the optical fiber from the fiber-optic cable with the pigtail cable, it can coil the excess optical fiber for storage and protect the fusion splice.
③ The deployment function inserts the connector attached to the tail cable to the adapter, and realizes the optical path connection with the optical connector on the other side of the adapter. Adapters and connectors should be able to be inserted and removed flexibly; the optical path can be freely deployed and tested.
④ The storage function provides storage for various cross-connected optical cables between racks, enabling them to be placed neatly and regularly. There should be appropriate space and methods in the optical fiber box to make the part of the optical cable clear and easy to adjust, and it can meet the requirements of the minimum bending radius.
