SMART SC 48 Patch Panels
Description
Headings:
The SMART SC 48 Patch Panel is a new addition to the RiT family of SNMP manageable realtime connectivity products. The panels, which support 24 duplex adapters (48 fibers) in a 2U
rack space, can be attached to the RiT PatchView system. The system continuously scans
the connectivity configuration of all the patch cords and reports it in SNMP to the network
administrator's management station.
A moving tray provides built in cable management by holding and arranging the cables. This
drawer mechanism enables easy access to the rear of the panel and does away with the
need for removing the panel above.
Configurable rack mounting brackets allow for recessed panel mounting adjustable to both
19" and 23" width, enhancing cable protection. Cable strain relief is provided by using cableties on the exterior of the panel, by means of rear and side cable entries, as well as in the
interior of the panel, by means of strain relief saddles. Grounding points are provided on the
rear of the panel which, in conjunction with the optional F/O Cable Ground Kit, allow
grounding of armored fiber optic cables.
The adapter panel includes two rows of 12 adapters, single mode or multi mode, spaced for
easy access during operation and maintenance. Each port includes an SC to SC or SC to ST
duplex adapter as well as an additional PatchView scanning contact. RiT's F/O SMART
Jumper™ patch cords must be used in order to benefit from the advantages of the
PatchView system.

SMART SC 48 Patch Panels
Description
These cords, described in greater detail in the Fiber Optic Cables and Cords section, feature
a duplex fiber cable, a single copper wire in a common jacket, and an SC duplex connector
with an extra spring-loaded copper contact. Regular SC patch cords can be used when
PatchView scanning is not desired. The panel includes four fiber management clips and one
cable entry gland.
Accessories
The SMART SC 48 Patch Panel offers a complete line of accessories to secure, organize and
protect fusion spliced fibers; including splice cassette kits, splice cassette expanders, fusion
protection sleeves and protection sleeve holders. The stackable splice cassettes hold up to
two protection sleeve holders each, for a total of 16 fibers per cassette.
Additional accessories are available to optimize cable protection and storage. Fiber
management clips are included to provide orderly excess cable storage, while maintaining
minimum bend radius. Fully customizable cable entry glands may be assembled over the
rear and side cable entries to further enhance cable strain relief. When using armored
cables, the F/O Cable Ground Kit can be attached to grounding points on the rear of the
panel.
