Z02 Series Pedestal Housings
Versatile, easy-to-use pedestal for FTTH and broadband networks
Charles Industries’ Z02 Non-Louvered Vertical Plastic Pedestal provides mounting facilities and security for fiber taps and RF passive components used in today’s Fiber-to-the-Home or coaxial based access networks. The pedestal is engineered for self-supporting direct buried installation or with the optional galvanized equipment mounting stake. Network access equipment can be affixed directly to the slotted thru–hole provisions integrated into the equipment mounting stake. Optional add-on bracket kits provide increased mounting flexibility to meet customer specific needs and applications.
The Z02 is engineered for installation convenience and cost effective deployments. During installation, simply bury the pedestal base to the desired depth and backfill. The pedestal has a rectangular design to maximize the usable internal dome space when typically rectangular-shaped equipment is installed. The depth of the dome provides sufficient clearance to support the bend radius of fiber drops exiting a fiber terminal or coax drop cables exiting the RF directional tap. The overall dome height provides ample space for stacked interconnected directional taps with splitters and directional coupler housings in a single pedestal.
These pedestals are molded from a polyethylene resin specifically designed for outside plant environments, resisting impact, ultraviolet and environmental degradation.
