trans data electronik introduces a seawater resistant fiber optic wall mount enclosure

Dortmund, 30. March 2012. tde - trans data elektronik, a leading manufacturer, distributor and system provider of network technology and a pioneer in the field of fibre optic multi-fibre technology, now offers a robust and seawater resistant fiber optic enclosure for wall-installation in harsh environments such as those found in offshore wind power plants or oil platforms. The compact stainless steel construction is ready prepared for splicing and comes in a turn-key system that can accommodate up to 168 splices.

Dortmund, 30. March 2012. tde - trans data elektronik, a leading manufacturer, distributor and system provider of network technology and a pioneer in the field of fibre optic multi-fibre technology, now offers a robust and seawater resistant fiber optic enclosure for wall-installation in harsh environments such as those found in offshore wind power plants or oil platforms. The compact stainless steel construction is ready prepared for splicing and comes in a turn-key system that can accommodate up to 168 splices.

"Data transfer in offshore wind farms demands high standards of the network components since they need to reliably provide high performance while at the same time brave the adverse effects of seawater and pollution. With the fibre optic wall mountenclosures tde has developed a complete turn-key system that makes an initial startup on site possible within the shortest amount of time”, says André Engel, CEO of tde-trans data elektronik.


Waterproof stainless steel casing

The casing of the enclosure is made of powdered stainless steel type V2A or V4A. It is processed precisely, extremely durable and - thanks to the protection class IP 66 - it reliably protects the components inside against the ingress of dust and sea water.


Removable splice-unit

Inside the fiber optic enclosure the splice area is located on the left side and the patch panel is on the right side. The two areas are both defined by a separately lockable door. The splice trays and the cable management clips for spare cable lengths are mounted on a carrier plate. The complete splicing area can be removed from the cabinet for splicing, which can thus be done very comfortably outside the cabinet. The assembly and disassembly of the carrier plate is tool-free. The upper edge of the carrier plate is inserted into a groove in the exterior of the cabinet, and then the lower region is fixed with knurled nuts to support the bolts.

The pigtails that extend into the splice area are provided with a protective sheet, so that no pigtail can be damaged accidentally when mounting the carrier plate. A spacious cable management and storage system including a bending radius limitation provides enough space to store the spare cable lengths - the generous dimensions make the handling easier. Because of the steady vibration of a wind turbine, the cable management is designed in a way that the bearing surface guarantees a long-term adherence of the cable bending radii.


Flexible internal assembly

The user is flexible regarding the choice of connector types and in terms of port density. By default LC duplex links are used, but in principle, any optical fiber connectors can be implemented. The internal design of the cabinet can be customized due to its modular buildup and DIN Rails can be integrated if required. The supplied cables come with separate potential equalization. If the supply with fibers occurs via a multi-fiber loose tube in which the fibers lie in a steel tube, the grounding of the cable is very useful so that the steel tube does not transfer power to the cabinet.
