Butt-End Dome Closures for FTTX Applications

Charles Fiber Optic Dome Closures (FODC) provide a versatile solution for splicing and protecting outdoor fiber connections in a familiar dome form factor. FODC units can be deployed to support a variety of topologies including strand or pole mountings, as well as below grade vault placements. These closures use mechanical compression technology to provide an easy to use economical cable sealing solution. Charles offers two sizes of FODC that accommodate up to 144 (FODC-A) or 288 (FODC-B) single fusion fiber splices.
