FieldShield Multiport SmarTerminalProviding up to 8 ports of OSP plug n'play connectivity at the network access point, the FieldShield Multiport SmarTerminal is configured with factory terminated FieldShield optical cable assemblies, with the feeder configuration pushed or pulled through FieldShield Microduct to a consolidated splice point. Distribution ports are sealed with airtight water-tight caps until service turn up is required. For deployment in a pedestal, flowerpot or vault, this above-grade or below-grade solution is the quickest, least intrusive placement method to deploy fiber, reducing restoration and troubleshooting costs as a cut fiber does not have to be retrenched. Restoration and troubleshooting is greatly reduced as a cut fiber does not have to be retrenched as only the cut microduct/fiber needs to be located, route path re-engaged with a simple airtight/watertight coupler, and connectivity re-established with a push/pull of a replacement FieldShield terminated assembly. Application Environments Using a snap-on toggle head, the FieldShield SmarTerminal mounts to any horizontal surface. Optimized for deployment below grade with Clearfield's CraftSmart protection vault or flower pot and above-grade in a CraftSmart fiber protection pedestal, the FieldShield SmarTerminal simply and securely snaps into the toggle head without any tools and is easily removable for access or trouble-shooting.
