Expanded-capacity buried distribution pedestals provide outstanding OSP protection and flexible splicing arrangements, and are Rural Development Utilities Program (RDUP) Accepted

New from Charles Industries, Pedlock CP2 BD Series Pedestals feature a revolutionary design ideally suited to protecting conduit-fed splice points in the outside plant. The dome, base and backboard feature non-metallic construction for long life, added safety, and superior performance. Every aspect of the pedestal’s design has been carefully crafted to provide installers and technicians with the industry’s most versatile and easy to use pedestal, while maintaining the Pedlock’s legacy of field-proven environmental protection.

CP2 BD Series pedestals include a unique corrugated channel base with increased capacity resulting from its square design. The base is split in two halves for easy installation around installed plant conduit and cable bundles. Internally, an innovative rail mount system accepts two types of splice brackets—a Universal Backboard or Splice Bracket—giving users added flexibility in splicing and cable management. The dome features a self-lock and positive alignment guides for quick and secure opening and closing.

Pedestal Features

  • Non-metallic PVC construction won’t rust, corrode, chip or fade. Internal equipment is protected from floods, fires, and wind-blown dust and debris
  • Corrugated channel base eliminates the need for metallic mounting stakes in most soil conditions. The base’s square design increases capacity and easily accepts conduit bundles
  • Split base design allows for easy and speedy access to cable/wire entrance area. Four 1¼” circular knockouts and one 4½” x 1½” rectangular “mouse hole” knockout below the ground-line provide easy exits for service wires without disturbing gravel or pedestal base fill. Stake mounting holes on three of the base’s sides provide flexibility in placement of mounting stake
  • Two splice bracket options provide users with a choice in splicing arrangements. The U-Backboard accommodates all types of terminal blocks and load coil cases with ladder bars on back for cable splices. The S-Bracket features an open ladder bar architecture for large pair-count splices. Both bracket options mount to the base of the pedestal using an innovative rail mount system that allows the brackets to be removed without the use of tools
  • Ground bars meet all RDUP requirements for proper grounding of service wires and cable sheaths
  • Self-locking dome with positive alignment guides ensures quick opening and takes the guesswork out of secure closing. 216-cupped bolt lock prevents unauthorized entry

 


Base Options

  • Split design allows pedestal to be easily placed around existing splice points, ideal for rehabilitation of metal enclosures
  • Corrugated channels provided stable placement in all soil types, including sandy soils
  • Rail mount system secures or releases splice bracket to base quickly and easily without the need of tools
  • Five service wire knockouts (four circular and one “mouse hole”) provide multiple service wire exit points
  • Mounting stake holes placed on three different base sides
  • Drop wire channel provides good-housekeeping
  • 216-cupped bolt locks and shoulder pin attachments join base halves
  • Embossed ground line
