What is the Type of Fiber Optic Terminal Box?


When we have a landline phone or broadband network connection, the installer will pull a wire from a small box installed on the wall in the public area of the community, and then connect it to the home. This small box is a fiber optic terminal box. What kind of equipment is it? What use does it have? What types does it have and what are the effects of different types? Now we will take everyone to know the fiber optic terminal box.


1. About the fiber optic terminal box


If we want to use the broadband network, we need to lead the wire to the home from the broadband optical cable. This involves how to fusion splice the outdoor optical fiber with the indoor pigtail. The fiber optic terminal box can help you solve this problem. The terminal box has an optical cable terminal box and an optical fiber terminal box. The fiber optic terminal box is used to split one optical cable into multiple single optical fibers. It can also be used for fusion splicing of optical fibers, and at the same time realizes fusion splicing of one optical fiber and multiple indoor pigtails.


2. The function and application scope of fiber optic terminal box


The main function of the fiber optic terminal box is to connect the outdoor optical fiber and the indoor pigtail. Popularly speaking, it converts the outdoor optical fiber signal into the kind of signal that can be used indoors for Internet access or phone calls.


Of course, the fiber optic terminal box also plays a role in fixing the optical fiber or optical cable and protecting it. At the same time, this small box is also convenient for the management department to check and repair at any time.


At present, fiber optic terminal boxes are widely used in wired communication network systems, broadband network systems, cable television systems, etc., and are also used for direct and tap connection of indoor optical fibers. The main functions of the fiber optic terminal box include fixing, fusion splicing, deployment, storage and so on.


3. The classification of fiber optic terminal boxes


Fiber optic terminal boxes can be divided into different types according to different methods, such as straight-through and branch types according to the optical cable connection method; some can be equipped with adapters while some can not; according to the shell material, it can be divided into metal shell fiber optic terminal boxes and fiber optic terminal box with plastic shell; according to the number of fusion spliced fibers, it can be divided into 2 in and 8 out, 4 in and 12 out, 4 in and 24 out, etc.; according to the specifications, it can be divided into four specifications of fiber optic terminal boxes: 6 cores, 8 cores, 12 cores, and 24 cores.


Different types of fiber optic terminal boxes are used in different fields and different demand scenarios. You can choose according to your needs.


4. The installation of fiber optic terminal box


The installation of the fiber optic terminal box is more professional. Finally, find a professional to install it. Here we can briefly introduce to you the connection relationship between lines. The outdoor optical cable or optical fiber is connected to the fiber optic terminal box, in order to realize the integration of outdoor optical fiber and indoor pigtail. Then lead it out through a jumper and connect it to the optical fiber transceiver. Finally lead out a network cable to connect to the router, and the user can connect to the Internet from the router.


Fiber optic terminal boxes are generally installed outdoors in public places, where they are protected from wind and rain. And care must be taken to maintain a suitable temperature to avoid damage to them.
