Drop Fiber Enclosure Kit saves time and money by simplifying fiber optic cable installations and repairs

Tempo Communications today announced the launch of a Drop Fiber Enclosure Kit (DFE100), which conveniently and cost-effectively allows the fiber technician to repair and protect fiber optic cables. The IP68-rated DFE100 houses and protects up to 12 fusion splices and two mechanical splices in a secure plastic casing that can be buried or mounted for future rework.

The DFE100 provides a splice point location within the network build as well as a demarcation point at the premises. It joins Tempo’s long list of comprehensive fiber solutions which are designed for technicians who demand performance and efficiency.

Tempo’s new DFE100 supports common fiber sizes of 8.1mm, 5.4mm, and 3.0mm and 5.1mm rectangular cables and 5.1mm round cables with provided individual sealing gaskets. The plastic casing can be easily assembled with common tools and the IP68 rating ensures that the enclosed splices will be safe from dirt, moisture and the elements.

“This Drop Fiber Enclosure Kit is really a game-changer for the fiber technician,” said Keith Foord, fiber instruments product manager with Tempo Communications. “It can handle up to 14 splices and ensures they are safely protected either underground, on the side of a building, or pole mounted. After the initial install, a technician can re-enter the DFE100 to address future issues and be confident that the enclosed cables will remain protected afterwards.”

Update: In June 2021, two additional models, the DFE101 and DFE104, were added to the DFE family to provide even greater versatility and flexibility to the technician. The new DFE101 provides a “stub” configuration so that output cable returns the same direction as the input, while the new DFE104 is a four-port device that allows the technician to configure the cable orientation to suit the installation requirements of their deployment.

The DFE Kit reaffirms Tempo’s commitment to developing relevant fiber solutions that are easy to use and simplify the technician’s job, enabling them to provide exceptional service and exceed customer expectations.
