Push the limits of optical distribution frames

Avant-garde range of Optical Distribution Frame (ODF) modules

Nexans XPLORER™ is a series of innovative Optical Distribution Frames modules developed to meet the future of optical fibre networks.

XPLORER™ premium injection molded optical modules are compatible with all standard types of frames or cabinets (19'', ETSI, with front or rear fixations). They provide flexibility and durability to passive optical networks on points of presence where they are deployed.

XPLORER™ modules are designed based on the concepts of SYMMETRY, SIMPLICITY, LIGHTNESS, MODULARITY and ROBUSTNESS, making them a smart solution to improve the performance of the networks.

  • Interchangeable panels
  • Customisable fitting of the modules, to adapt to specific operators' usages
  • Anticipating upcoming evolutions of optical fibre networks

XPLORER™ provides flexibility to your fibre networks.

Modules are adaptable to better fit the needs of each point of presence. They can be reconfigured on-site to comply with all network specificities.

  • Intuitive fixation
  • Improved fibre routing
  • Standing free from installation hazards

XPLORER™ modules have an improved fibre routing. Management of fibres over-length, bending radius and splicing configuration are designed to ensure an intuitive cabling and a constant protection of the fibres.
A simplified Nexans fixation system allows to reduce the complexity of modules installations.

  • High-quality materials
  • Temperature, chemical and fungi resistance
  • Working for a durable network performance

XPLORER™ modules are designed to last on the long-term.

Tested in compliance with IEC 61300-2 for G environments from IEC 61753-1 (-40°C/+75°C), materials were smartly chosen to ensure resistance to chemicals (hydrocarbons and oils), fungi and corrosion making the modules specifically suitable for large fibre deployments.

  • Up to 50% weight reduction
  • Taking security and penibility into account
  • Enhancing transport conditions

Compare to previous versions, materials used reduce the weight by 50% making the XPLORER™ modules easy to manipulate. The separation of the fixed chassis and the swiveling part increases this feeling of lightness.

  • Optimised stock management
  • On-site configuration: polyvalence of installations with low products diversity

XPLORER™ ODF swiveling modules are reversible. Whether you need a right-axis or a left-axis module, all parts remain the same and the side of the fixation can be delayed to the last minutes at the installation phase.
XPLORER™ modules reduces the complexity of the management of ODF passive equipment.

Nexans XPLORER™ is an optimised universal solution of optical distribution frame modules for both small-scale and large-scale deployments.
