IDEAA® Interior Distribution Cabinet
GENERAL
The IDEAA Interior Distribution Cabinet (IDC) provides a convenient modular approach to centralized fiber distribution in
medium to large Multiple Dwelling Unit (MDU) applications. All sizes of the IDC utilize the IDEAA splitter module to enable
versatility across the platform. The IDC utilizes innovative jumper routing to enable efficient fiber management utilizing
equal length pigtails for the entire cabinet. The IDEAA IDC provides MDU fiber distribution in an extremely compact size.

INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS
IDEAA® Interior Distribution Cabinet
CABINET MOUNTING—WALL MOUNT
1. Using local engineering practices, determine the mounting position of the cabinet on the wall.
2. Mark the four mounting points to be pre-drilled for cabinet placement.
3. Using local accepted practices and approved hardware, insert a lag screw into each of the four pre-drilled mounting
holes. Screw the lag screws half-way into the wall.
Note: For best practice, it is recommended that the lag screws hex head is wider than the key slots of the
cabinet mounts. Also, ensure that the shaft of the screws is smaller than the actual mounting slots for ease
of installation.
4. Mount the cabinet over the pre-installed lag screws.
5. Secure the cabinet to the wall by tightening the four lag screws. Before the lag screws are completely tightened a
level may be used to ensure that the cabinet is in the desired position.
LOCK AND UNLOCK EXTERIOR DOORS
1. Using a standard 216 style tool, or similar, turn the locking bolt (located at the center of the IDC door) a ¼ turn.
Note: A pad lock, not provided, may be utilized if additional security is desired.
DOOR REMOVAL AND RE-INSTALLATION
The IDC was designed so that the door may be installed on either side of the cabinet for applications where there are
space restrictions.
1. Lift up on the cabinet door to release it from the hinge pins.
2. Using local engineering practices determine which side of the cabinet the door is to be placed. Install the cabinet door
over the appropriate hinge pins.
3. Using a standard 216 style socket tool, or similar, lock the cabinet.
CABLE PREPARATION
Caution:
Fiber optic cable is susceptible to damage from excessive bending, pulling or crushing forces.
At every stage of the installation process ensure that the loose buffer tubes or ribbon fibers are free from
unintentional cuts, knick or bends to avoid potential fiber damage.
1. Mark the cable to have a minimum 72” (183 cm) opening.
2. Use local accepted practice to remove the cable sheath.
3. Using wire cutters cut the central strength member back to the sheath opening.

Figure 6
Figure 7
COMPRESSION FITTING INSTALLATION
Caution:
In order to avoid micro bends or fiber damage do not over-tighten the compression fitting around
the fiber cable.
1. Ensure that the mounting hole is free from burrs and that the cabinet surface is smooth and free of debris.
2. Place the hex portion on the body (not the sealing nut) into the mounting hole.
3. Insert the cable through the fitting to the desired position.
Note: For best practice, it is recommended that when working with the 9-port compression fitting that the
multi-port grommet be removed from the fitting body. Slit each of the application appropriate ports and align
the grommet around the cables. Once all required cables are seated in the grommet, insert both the cables
and grommet back into the fitting body.
4. Tighten the sealing nut to hand-tight.
5. Using a wrench hold the body hex stationary while tightening the sealing nut with a second wrench. Tighten until the
cable is held securely in place.
6. Check to ensure that the fitting body is still screwed tightly into the panel.3. Insert the cable through the fitting to the
desired position.

ACTIVATE IDEAA SPLITTER MODULE
An IDEAA Splitter Module that has been mounted into the IDC is not active
until it has been connected to the Input Field.
Caution:
When working with fiber optics, do not look directly into
the end of the fiber cable or adapter port. A power meter may
be used to determine if the cable or port is dark. Or use locally
accepted fiber optic safety practices.

of the jumper provided with the IDEAA Splitter Module.
2. Plug the jumper cable into the black input port on the IDEAA Splitter Module.
Note: When mounted on the cover plate, the black input port will be
located in the bottom left corner of the adapter field. (Figure 19)

1. If not already removed, remove the shipping screws from each side of the swing down tray. A total of two screws will
be removed. (Figure 3)
2. Using local engineering practices, determine the appropriate distribution fiber to be connected. Remove the
corresponding fiber storage cartridge from the swing down tray by pushing in and pulling up on the cartridge arms.
(Figure 24)
Note: The cartridges and distribution fibers are numbered to assist in fiber identification. Additionally,
distribution fibers may be identified by placing a red light on the customer side of the fiber, and locating the
fiber on the swing down tray. (Figure 25)
Figure 24
Figure 25
3. Remove the desired distribution fiber from the cartridge by sliding the
connector out of the housing location and continue to route the cable out
of the cartridge.
4. For best practice, it is recommended that the distribution fiber be routed
back to the transition point. Ensuring the distribution fiber has a clear
path to the fiber routing section of the IDC.
5. Use local accepted practices to clean the distribution fiber connector
end face.
6. Connect the distribution fiber to the appropriate port on the IDEAA
Splitter Module.
7. Use the foam fiber relief to route the distribution fiber to the fiber routing
section of the IDC. Employing a similar technique to that used with the

MDU DROP CABLE INSTALLATION—4.8 MM CABLE
Both the 288F and 432F IDC are capable of supporting up to 72 direct connections to the living unit through the use of a
MDU drop cable for applications in which the interconnect panel will be bypassed.
Caution:
Fiber optic cable is susceptible to damage from excessive bending, pulling or crushing forces.
At every stage of the installation process ensure that the fibers are free from unintentional cuts, knick or
bends to avoid potential fiber damage.
1. Remove the two caps to expose the nuts on the MDU drop access plate, located in the upper right corner of the cabinet.
2. Using a standard 216 style tool, or similar, remove the two nuts that secure the MDU drop access plate to the
cabinet body. (Figure 28)
3. Remove the MDU drop access plate. (Figure 29)

4. Insert the 4.8 mm jacket into the drop retention bracket. (Figure 30)
Figure 30
5. Slide the 4.8 mm drop cable to the back-most position within the drop retention bracket.
6. Ensure that the MDU drop cable is long enough to reach the desired IDEAA Splitter Module port.
Recommendation: For best practice no more than 42” (107 cm) of MDU drop cable is needed inside the IDC
for the distribution drop installation process. This length will optimize the routing capability within the IDC
and prevent excessive lengths of MDU drop cable from collecting within the cabinet.
7. Repeat steps 4-7 for all desired MDU drop cables.
8. Once all MDU drop cables have been installed, replace the drop access plate.
9. Using a standard 216 style tool, or similar, replace the two nuts that secure the MDU drop access plate to the cabinet
body and cover with caps. (Figure 31)
