CCH Splice Cassettes
CCH splice cassettes enable fast field termination and easy modular management of connectorization within the housing.
The CCH splice cassette supports fusion splicing of individual or ribbon fibers, with heat-shrinks, pigtail slack and cable slack managed within a single space-saving footprint. This eliminates the need for individual splice trays or separate splice housings as well as allowing splicing to be done away from the rack housing in a suitable workspace as needed. The modular design makes it easy to access the fiber in an individual cassette without disturbing other fibers in the housing. A CCH panel with the desired adapter configuration can be ordered separately and fits easily into the cassette.
Each cassette is shipped with one rail for use with CCH-01U/2U/3U housings and two rails used with CCH- 04U housings. Grommets and cable ties for additional strain-relief and protective tubing for incoming cable are also included. Splice cassettes ship with 12 single-fiber heat-shrink splice protectors.
