About This Project

enCAD had delivered designs for 3 different types of patch panels for the Fiber optic industry. Compact and easily accessible designs were delivered on time as per client requirements. Designing fiber bend radius and splicing for compact size requirements was a critical part.

 

Client requirement:

  • Design of 3 Patch panel designs – 3U, 2U,1U.
  • Design to be easily accessible.
  • Compact design.

 

Project Highlights:

The project involved designing 3 different types of patch panels that have different sizes. The design is for fiber optic industries and the panels were designed in a way that is easily accessible to everyone as per the client’s requirement. Initially, concept designs were prepared and provided to the client for suggestions. After the client’s approval, the panel is designed as per DFM, and DFA standards. The critical parts of the project involved designing the fiber bend radius and splicing as it is required to be compact for the different sizes. Sheet metal design was mostly used for the design purpose of the project. A 19-inch rack was designed and used in all the 3 patch panels. Plastic enclosure and FDH are the upcoming projects in the pipeline from the client.

 

Deliverables:

  • Concept design.
  • Design files.
  • Manufacturing drawing
  • Bill of Materials.
