Z14 High Heat Node Pedestal Housings

Pedestal for Housing High Heat Nodes and Other Next Generation CATV/Broadband Network Equipment

Next generation CATV network upgrades, including Remote PHY (R-PHY), MAC-PHY, Node + 0, Node + N, etc., are placing increasing thermal and space demands on outside plant pedestal housings. New R-PHY optical nodes are being engineered to dissipate 160 Watts of power; significantly greater than prior generations of pedestal housings were designed to accommodate. Pedestals that cannot accommodate 160W can result in network outages or shorter equipment lifespans due to over-heated equipment.

The Charles Industries’ Z14 pedestal housing was engineered specifically to meet the demands of next generation CATV network architectures and equipment. It is built to withstand the harsh elements typically found in outside plant deployments. Leveraging our expertise in outside plant enclosure engineering, thermal analysis, design and testing, the Z14 is capable of supporting R-PHY compliant equipment across all regions in the USA.
