Optical Cable Corporation Announces New Line of Fiber Optic Enclosures
Product Line Offers Cost-Effective Solutions
Roanoke, VA, January 17, 2009 -- Optical Cable Corporation (Nasdaq GM: OCCF) today announced the introduction of its new line of FiberOpticx™ OCO Enclosures designed to offer cost-effective solutions for data and communication cable management.
Optical Cable's OCO line of fiber optic enclosures were designed specifically for smaller inside and outside plant uses and are rugged, compact and ideal for quick patching applications.
"Our OCO line of enclosures offer the features you'd expect from larger boxes, yet at a competitive and economical price point," says Bruce Smith, Product Manager. The FiberOpticx™ OCO product line was developed by Optical Cable's SMP Data Communications subsidiary.
The OCO6N and the OCO12N easily accommodate SMP's adapter plates, offering up to 12 fiber ports on the OCO6N and up to 24 fiber ports on the OCO12N. By using SMP's adapter plates, a multitude of termination configurations in multi-mode or single mode can be achieved. In addition, the enclosures offer convenient cable storage hoops to assist with proper cable management and fiber bend radius requirements.
The FiberOpticx™ OCO product line comes standard with a tamper resistant fastening system, is NEMA Type 3 compliant and is backed by a 15-year out-of-the-box warranty.
