As more fiber is deployed in the distribution network, more severe and compact environments are encountered. The compact 3M Fiber Optic Splice Closure 2178-XSB features a rugged closure tested under harsh, real-world conditions to stand up to even the most severe conditions of moisture, vibration, and extreme temperatures.
The closure is the smallest member of 3M's successful 2178-series of fiber optic splice closures. The design concept, appearance, and method of installation are almost identical to the other members of the 2178-series family, so no special tools or complicated training procedures are required for installation.
The closure is easily re-enterable to allow access to splices and the addition of drops or small diameter cables. It can be installed in most OSP environments: underground (pedestal, handhole, and manhole), aerial (strand & pole mount) and wall mount applications.
The compact size of the 2178-XSB closure (14.56" x 10.1" x 4.62") makes it ideal for pedestal and handhole splicing, particularly for TTP applications. Specifically designed for butt splicing applications only, the closure has three cable entry ports (two 1.0" ports and one 1.4" port). The multiport grommet feature provides for simple, flexible and future-proof drop or small diameter branch cable additions.
The 2178-XSB closure offers a flexible fiber management system for splicing and storage with both stackable and hinged trays that accommodate various types of splices (single or mass fusion and mechanical). The maximum single fusion and mass fusion splice capacity for the 2178-XSB is 72 fusion and 144 ribbon fibers, respectively.
Anyone using fiber optic splice closures in the long haul, metro, local access (DSL, HFC, mobile wireless backhaul) and FTTP feeder and distribution networks will appreciate the simple and reliable design of the 2178-XSB splice closure.
With the 2178 family of fiber optic splice closures, 3M is the complete fiber protection solution for all of your splicing needs.
