Ortronics/Legrand Introduces New Swing-Away Workstation Fiber Manager

NEW LONDON, Conn., Jan. 20 -- Ortronics/Legrand, a global leader in high performance fiber, copper and wireless structured cabling solutions, introduces the OptiMo Swing-Away Fiber Manager. The patent-pending Swing-Away is an innovative workstation slack storage solution that provides easier, faster and more cost-effective fiber installation at the workstation.

The Swing-Away Fiber Manager offers unique fiber management and slack storage for superior optical performance in single gang and dual gang wall outlet spaces, eliminating the need for large, obtrusive surface mount enclosures and cumbersome electrical boxes. This new concept capitalizes on the common use of mud rings as a means of facilitating installation of work area devices and adds significant advantage to the installer with a novel swing and slide work platform that acts as a "third hand" to assist with fiber installation. For easier access during fiber termination, the Swing-Away Fiber Manager conveniently slides out of the wall and swings open to the left or right. Cable strain relief is an integral component of the fiber manager. When termination and fiber storage are complete, simply swing the assembly back towards the wall and slide it into place for an attractive and secure flush mounted installation.

With Ortronics' Swing-Away Fiber Manager, terminated fibers are better protected because they are stored behind the wall similar to copper twisted- pairs. The Swing-Away Fiber Manager accommodates up to 6 meters of 900 micron buffered fiber on its handy fiber storage spool, while ensuring proper bend radius control for longer fiber life and maximum optical performance. Additionally, Swing-Away is fully compatible with Ortronics' broad range of Series II and TracJack fiber workstation modules (LC, SC, ST and MT-RJ) and is compatible with most standard Ortronics Series II and TracJack faceplates.
