PROJECT OVERVIEW

Discrete connectors are a critical part of the copper access network for jointing copper pairs. The quality of these components has a direct impact on network performance.


SOLUTION

Dexgreen has developed a full suite of discrete connectors for all conductor wire sizes and to be used in all parts of the access network.


Key Features include…


Easy to Use:

  • The discrete connectors can be easily and quickly installed through the use of a simple crimping pliers.
  • No stripping of wire required – simply displace the insulation through a firm pressure.
  • Wide range of training and supports available to aid installation.

Versatile:

  • Wide range of Connectors are available that are suitable with all conductor wire sizes.
  • Compatible with all conductor types used in the legacy access network, i.e. alluminium, copper, etc.
  • Available gel-filled and un-filled and colour-coded for quick identification.
  • Wide range of connector types available, for example: 2-wire, 3-wire, half-tap, modular, drop-wire and many others to suit all applications in the access network.

Moisture Resistant:

  • Gel-filling makes these connectors ideal for use in harsh environments subjected to moisture, corrosion and chemical exposure
  • Continuous ongoing testing according to stringent specifications has validated our connectors to be a reliable solution in the access network.
  • Multiple gel formulations optimised for various installation conditions are availble.

Durable

  • Our full range of connectors have been qualified to Telecordia specification and continuous ongoing testing is performed according to this.
  • Gel-filling ensures the connectors withstand prolonged exposure to adverse environmental conditions in the outside plant access network.
  • Available without gel and flame retardent material also, which makes our connectors an excellent solution for the Central Office and indoor environments.

Maintenance:

We have designed several connectors specifically for maintenance of the access network, for example:

  • 11A Make Before Break connector: perfect for maintenance of existing circuits in the legacy network, i.e. remakes and replacement of obsolete / damaged connectors.
  • UY4C: Fully tool-less gel-filled connector that is used to replace obsolete / damaged screw-down blocks in the legacy network. Ultimately this improves customer satisfaction as it improves reliability of the connection point.
