Panduit Launches FlexCore™ Optical Distribution Frame

DCS Panduit Launches FlexCore Optical Distribution Frame 1 400

April 25, 2022


Panduit Corp. announces the launch of its new FlexCore™ Optical Distribution Frame [ODF], a versatile front-access cabling system that provides necessary protection for critical connections. Utilizing innovative cable management and simple, intuitive cable routing, the FlexCore ODF simplifies and reduces time for moves, adds, and changes. With standard doors with locks and optional locks for each enclosure, the FlexCore ODF solution enables multi-tiered security that is important for multiple client access.

The FlexCore ODF system can manage up to 3,168 fibers per frame, making it easy to create multiple configurations using just three modular building blocks. This flexibility allows for design customization and scalability while optimizing both product availability and system density. Compared to typical data center cabinets, FlexCore ODF can reduce floor space in a data center by 50%*. In addition, with side panels and doors with locks, the FlexCore ODF solution allows the system to be completely enclosed and secure.

“As the value of each fiber circuit rises exponentially and networks continue to densify, data center managers who demonstrate greater scalability, agility, and resilience will gain a business advantage,” stated Stephen Morris, Panduit Senior Product Manager. “FlexCore delivers on all those fronts with its unrivaled manageability, scalability, fiber circuit protection, and security features.”

Panduit FlexCore Optical Distribution Frame offers multiple advantages over existing products:

  • •Highly intuitive cable routing paths remove guesswork and prevents ‘rip and replace’ costs
  • •Innovative cable management and lockable vertical cable manager doors eliminate circuit risk and downtime
  • •Up to 3,168 fibers per frame when using standard 24 fiber cassettes
  • •Data center floor space can be reduced by 50%*
  • •Simplifies and reduces the time for moves, adds, and changes
  • •Multiple form factor (width) cassettes optimize rack space across wider applications
  • •Patch cords consolidated to a single length – freeing up capital locked in maintaining inventory
  • •Multi-layer security with lock capability available at both 4RU enclosure and ODF doors

Conserving Power and CO2 Emissions with Premium Efficiency Motors

The process of converting electrical energy to mechanical energy is never perfect. As much as we would like to have a 100% efficient motor, it is impossible to build a machine that will take 746 watts of electricity (the equivalent of 1 Hp) and convert it to 1 Hp of mechanical output. It always takes somewhat more than 746 watts to yield 1 Hp’s worth of output.

Motors are continuously being pushed to be more efficient and reduce these losses. Over the years the guiding regulations of motor manufacturing have pushed us to improve efficiencies to new levels to reduce the considerable global power consumption of motors, as they are everywhere. From our factories, utilities and homes and most anywhere you can think of.

How much power consumption aka money are you spending that you do not have to? Take a minute while having your coffee to see if you can save money.
