Cannon D-Type Outdoor Cabinet


“D-TYPE” is a range of enclosure developed for the communications and fibre jointing sector, in particular where passive equipment is being deployed. The presents of moisture upon the equipment or fibre joint could cause premature failure of the connection leading to serious consequences. The enclosure consists of an outer skin with a fully insulated inner chamber. The insulated inner chamber creates a temperature differential preventing the inner skin from reaching a temperature where dewing on the surface is likely to occur.

The Cannon D-TYPE cabinet provides IP65 protection and is available as standard: 1350mm high x 1250mm wide x 500mm deep with the option via its modular construction to provide customer specific sizes. The base of the cabinet has a plinth system enabling it to be fitted directly to a standard Network Rail Location Case pre-cast concrete block No BRS-SC 31.

Designed primarily for copper and/or fibre cable termination, the star-punching of the metal backboard allows the cabinet to be fitted out with a variety of termination equipment/connectors to customers’ requirements.

Fitted with a removable inner thermal chamber to eliminate condensation, this is a genuine and proven IP65 design with NAMAS test house approvals and being manufactured from Cannon specified high quality materials shows significant savings on true life costs.
