Multi-Purpose Housings (CMPH)
Expanded-capacity, environmentally protected OSP closures designed to house copper, fiber and broadband cable equipment
Charles Multi-Purpose Housings (CMPH) are versatile OSP closures designed for both new provisioning installations as well as rehabilitation of existing access points housed in metallic enclosures. The CMPH’s superior structural strength, outstanding environmental protection and ease of installation combine to create a long-life housing that reduces operational expenses.
The CMPH assembly features a lift-off dome and corrugated channel base. The lift-off dome allows 360º access to internal working areas with access via recessed hex head lock(s) using a 216 Tool or Can Wrench. The dome provides “bell jar” flood protection, eliminates intrusion of wind-blown rain and dust, and prevents unauthorized entry. The base provides ample room for entry of multiple large cables, including conduit. A spacious bottom entry allows technicians to easily slide the base over existing large cable rehabilitation applications.
CMPH enclosures are available with multiple internal bracket configurations for copper, fiber, and copper/fiber installations, as well as empty (no bracket) and custom bracket configurations for unique deployment situations. Ground and bonding hardware is included.
Features and Benefits
In rehabilitation installations, existing stakes can be utilized for placement, eliminating the potentially hazardous operation of re-driving stakes into unknown buried copper and fiber feeds
