The building blocks of the FACT optical distribution frame system are the FACT panels. FACT panels can be deployed individually as a single-element elements, or up to six similar elements can be combined into high fiber-count FACT panels.The single-element FACT panels measures 30.95 mm (1.22 in.) tall, 30 percent less than the standard HU/1RU (44.45 mm/1.75 in.). Each FACT element features two hinged trays, providing full front access to both sides of all connections and clear visibility of all ports.
FACT panels support full patch and/or splice-patch functions within a rack environment. Trays within the element can be configured with adapters, splicing and passive optical components. Trays are staggered for easy fiber routing and access to connectors. FACT standard version integrates into a current partially or non-equipped FIST-GR2/3 frame or lineup.
