Dortmund/Germany, March 19th 2018. The cabling systems tML, tSML, tBL and tDF by tde – trans data elektronik are now available with the new OM5 fibre. As a result, these highly flexible plug-and-play platforms offer even more options when migrating to higher transmission rates. For better differentiation, the network specialist designed its LC and MPO connectors as well as the corresponding adapters as LC quad and LC duplex versions in the officially standardized OM5 cable colour „Lime green“. As the only supplier on the market to date tde has equipped the adapters with self-closing dust and laser shutters as standard.

All tde cabling systems with the new OM5 fibre are now available. The network expert has integrated the cables with the officially standardized colour „lime green“ into his proven systems. This includes the successful modular and semi-modular plug-and-play platforms tML and tSML, the tBL product line for classic cabling and the modular and centralized fibre optic distribution frame tDF. As with previous OM fibre classes, tde has also designed the LC and MPO connectors and the corresponding adapters in the OM5 cable colour „Lime green“.

„For network engineers, it is particularly important to be able to distinguish the OM classes of multimode fibres by the colour of the cable jacket and the connectors. This provides greater clarity during installation and patching. This has proven itself since the introduction of OM3,“ says Andre Engel, Managing Director of tde.

Highly innovative: adapters with integrated shutter

tde offers the adapters as LC Quad and LC Duplex versions. They integrate self-closing dust and laser shutters made of metal as standard and ensure the transmission quality of fibre optic cabling maintaining a high packing density. „We are very pleased to be the only manufacturer on the market to offer adapters with integrated shutters. This underlines once again our high level of innovation,“ explains Andre Engel. tde now also provides all common cable types, patch and trunk cables with the OM5 fibre.

Since the OM5 fibre is optimized for Short Wave Division Multiplexing (SWDM) technology, customers receive even more options for migrating to higher transmission rates. Suitable SWDM transceivers for transmission rates of 40 and 100 GBit are already available on the market. „The use of the OM5 fibre does not conflict with the MPO connection technology,“ explains Andre Engel and continues: „The MPO connector is still the first choice for rear cabling and fully exploits its advantages in terms of fast installation. As there will be solutions in the foreseeable future to combine SWDM technology with parallel optics, companies should already rely on the OM5 fibre today. By this they remain future-proof and keep all future possibilities. In the rear area of our tML24 cabling system, SWDM technology already achieves 1.2 Terabit via a 24-fibre MPO connector.“

The tML – tde Modular Link-System

tML is a patented, modular cabling system consisting of the three key components module, trunk cable and rack mount enclosure. The system components are 100 percent manufactured, pre-assembled and tested in Germany. They enable plug-and-play installation on site – especially in data centres, but also in industrial environments – within the shortest possible time. The system is characterized by highest packing density and highest flexibility during migration to higher transmission rates. Fibre optic and TP modules can be combined in one rack mount enclosure. 96x fibre optics LC Duplex or 96x MPO connectors can be used modularly on a 19-inch height unit. Thanks to its patented polarity and dark fibre modules, the tML system offers the simplest migration options to 100G and more.

Patented tPM patch cable management system by tde: More order and Green IT in data centres

Patented tPM patch cable management system by tde:   More order and Green IT in data centres

patch cable management system by tde

Dortmund, 10 April 2014. With their patented tPM, tde – trans data elektronik now presents a patch cable management system for an organized and flexible cable routing of fibre optic and twisted pair patch cables in network distributors: the three-part system consists of a 19 inch panel on one height unit, cable guide holders as well as foam inserts and protects the patch cables from mechanical strain thanks to its integrated strain relief. In combination with tde’s own platforms tML and tSML, tPM creates neatly structured and energy efficient cabling of a high packing density within a compact unit.

The tPM system is a patented patch cable management system for organized patch cable routing in network distributors. The integrated strain relief protects the cables from mechanical strain and so prevents an unnecessary increase of attenuation caused by micro-bending. This is particularly advantageous with regard to the low loss budget at high transfer rates. The system contains three parts, a 19 inch panel on one height unit, cable guide holders and foam inserts. Depending on the needs and applications, installers can equip the tPM system with up to nine cable guide holders with different foam inserts and attach them in 17 different positions to the 19 inch panel. Alternatively, there is also a angled bracket for the vertical cable routing. In this way it is easier to lay or re-lay cables and it is easier to exchange damaged or unnecessary patch cables. At the same time, the improved cable management system contributes to a more efficient airing of the server rack and so results in more Green IT in data centres.

„Because of the growing demands placed on technology and capacity, the amount of network cables in data centres is constantly increasing. Our new tPM patch cable management system brings order into the network distribution rack and so ensures a significantly improved overview“, says Andre Engel, CEO of tde – trans data elektronik.
A quick installation is possible due to the simple and tool-free mounting and locking of the cable guide holders. The foam inserts are available with different gaps for various cable types and volumes according to use. Installers can insert the cables from above into the cable guide holders and subsequently fixate them with the foam inserts and the folding mechanism. The tPM system can manage a horizontal as well as a vertical patch cable routing.

„The demand for our patented patch cable management system is high. Some of our customers – from the automotive industry, for instance – are already successfully using our patented system“, Andre Engels continues.

The tPM is even more flexible and more efficient in combination with tde’s own modular plug-and-play cabling platforms tML – tde Modular Link and tSML – tde Semi Modular Link.
