Tripp Lite N48K-42M8L168-B 40/100Gb Fiber Breakout Patch Panel, 40Gb to 4 x 10Gb, 100Gb to 4 x 25Gb, 42 MTP QSFP to 168 LC Duplex OM4 50/125 Multimode Ports, 2U - N48K-42M8L168-B
Find out how you can order belowHow to buy
The N48K-42M8L168-B 50/125 Breakout Fiber Patch Panel not only integrates equipment with 10G and 40G speeds, but also provides a simple, flexible path from 25Gb to 100Gb, as well as upcoming 50Gb to 200Gb speeds and beyond. The 2U chassis features 14 breakout cassettes. Each cassette contains 12 LC duplex ports and three built-in two-meter MTP multimode cables for a total of 42 QSFP fiber switch ports breaking out to 168 LC ports. Base8 wiring with built-in MTP trunks maximizes rack space and link performance, while enabling simple cable deployment and optimized harness mapping. The N48K-42M8L168-B uses all 168 LC ports, meaning no dead ports as in Base12 wiring, with streamlined 1-to-1 port mapping. Eliminating the need for 12-fiber conversion modules results in a reduction of up to 50 percent in link attenuation. Hardwired cassettes offer a 30-percent improvement in insertion loss with no separate MTP connection in the rear, resulting in longer duplex link distances. Color-coded magenta OM4 cables are easily distinguished from traditional aqua OM3 multimode fiber. Base-8 Fiber compatible with both QSFP+ 40GBASE-SR4 to SFP+ 10GBASE-SRÂ and QSFP28 100GBASE-SR4 to SFP28 25GBASE-SR connections. The front panel folds down to protect the LC patch cords, as well as provide wire mapping by matching each cassetteâ€™s labeled MTP cables to the LC clusters. Writing space on the inside panel lets you custom-label each port. Each panel is serialized and insertion loss data is available upon request via the unitâ€™s serial number. Integrates Equipment with 10Gb and 40Gb Speeds, or 25Gb and 100Gb, to Meet Current Connectivity Needs Also future-proofs your network for eventual 50Gb and 200Gb speeds and beyond Base-8 Fiber compatible with both QSFP+ 40 GBASE-SR4 to SFP+ 10GBASE-SR and QSFP28 100GBASE-SR4 to SFP28 25GBASE-SR connections OM4 fiber for highest throughput 14 Breakout Cassettes 12 LC duplex ports and 3 built-in 2-meter MTP multimode cables per cassette Total of 42 12-fiber MTP/MPO switch ports and 168 LC ports 100% fiber utilization Streamlined 1:1 port mapping Up to 50% reduction in link attenuation Color-coded magenta cables easily distinguishable in crowded switch Base8 Wiring No unused LC ports as in Base12 wiring Simple patch cable deployment Optimized harness mapping Hardwired cassette modules offer 30% improvement in insertion loss Fold-Down Front Panel LC patch cables protected Provides wire mapping by matching each cassetteâ€™s labeled MTP cables to LC clusters Writing space on inside panel for custom-labeling of ports Insertion loss data available via unitâ€™s serial number Mounts in 2U of EIA-Standard 19 in.

Detect system overloads, loose defective components and damaged switchgear. Infrared electrical testing finds hot, dangerous problems quickly. Infrared electrical inspections find hot spots caused by defects in connections and components.
Infrared thermography is used to find areas of excess heat (caused by increased resistance) so that problems can be corrected before a component fails, causing damage to the component, creating safety hazards and productivity loss. Because increased heating is a sign of failure, infrared is the best diagnostic tool available for finding these hot connections in the early stages of degeneration.
