Omron has released a new Tap Case package and additional fibre assembly options, extending the mounting options for CWDM (coarse wave division multiplexing) multiplexers in fibre-to-the-node and fibre-to-the-home applications.
Tap Case miniature packaging alternatives are available off the shelf and at no extra cost. Overall dimensions of the package (15.1 x 8.8 x 4.7mm (l x h x w)) are almost the same as existing ultra small multiplexers, but the new option features two integrally moulded webs with 2.7mm diameter holes for fixing to panels, trays and other frameworks. It is an ideal mounting solution in roadside cabinets where space is limited and where continuously higher levels of shock and vibration are encountered.

In addition, both the standard and Tap Case packages are available with new Y and V type fibre assembly variants, as well the standard fibre ribbon. The Y type provides a neat fibre exit where space is limited and high mechanical resistance is not required, whilst V type assembly is suited to simple customer side panel and rack mounting. Here, higher mechanical resistance is mandatory for handling and other environmental reasons.

These new mounting and assembly variants are available with six models in Omron's single mode mux product line – the industry's smallest mass-produced devices compliant with Telcordia GR1221. Omron P1X4 (4 channel) and P1X8 (8 channel) multiplexers use a simplified architecture to achieve the world’s smallest size. This, along with a miniature multi-layer thin film filter combined in a proprietary structure, ensure cost-competitive performance in a miniature form factor.
