The InstaPATCH 360 ruggedized fanout cables support the direct connection to the equipment from the patch panel. Terminated with MPO connectors on one end and clipped duplex connectors (LC, SC or ST) on the other end, the ruggedized fanout cables are available in 12, 24, 36, 48 and 72 fiber counts. Female MPO (MP - no pins) fanouts are utilized for connections to equipment from a InstaPATCH 360 module. Male MPO (MX - pinned) fanouts are utilized for connections to equipment directly from a trunk cable. Array fanouts can be terminated with MPO connectors on one end and clipped duplex connectors (LC, SC, ST) on the other end. Different from ruggedized fanouts which include an outer sheath to protect the fiber on longer runs between racks, array cords utilize 3.0 mm 12 fiber cordage that is protected with aramid yarn for durability and allowing maximum flexibility within a rack/cabinet. Array fanouts with MPO to duplex connectors (LC, SC, ST) are used for directly connecting equipment to a trunk or InstaPATCH 360 Module.
