FiberSource Active-S App imageActive-S Humidity Control Sheets from FiberSource are a more cost-effective method for protecting telecom cabinets and equipment by eliminating the damage, corrosion, rust and component failure caused by condensation. The active humidity control sheets require less physical space, are maintenance-free, and do not need a power source. This equates to a longer product lifetime with significantly reduced installation and maintenance time and labor costs compared to other technologies.

It is a maintenance-free alternative to desiccants, heaters, dehumidifiers, thermostats, hygrotherms, hygrostats, and corrosion inhibitors for preventing excess moisture in cabinets, enclosures, and cases.

“Active-S Humidity Control Sheets are a more practical and reliable solution than these alternatives. The Active-S sheets last for years, can be applied in minutes in tight and hard-to-reach spaces, fit all sizes of enclosures, and require no power source to maintain humidity levels,” said Brian DiMarco, President at FiberSource. “Active-S Humidity Control Sheets offer the lowest installation cost, and lowest applied cost for controlling humidity.”

Active-S Humidity Control Sheets are made of a macromolecule polymer, which is a super-absorbent material that “breathes,” providing an active exchange of absorption and release. When humidity in the enclosure is high, the humidity control sheet absorbs the excess moisture, reducing humidity levels inside the cabinet. But when the cabinet becomes dry, the sheet “breathes out” the moisture, consistently suppressing and maintaining relative humidity in the cabinet.

Active-S Humidity Control Sheets have proven their dependability and value time and again in 10 years of field application. More than 1.6 million pieces are installed in connection terminal boxes and protection devices, with a perfect track record — so much so that they’ve been endorsed repeatedly by contractors in the telecommunications industry in Japan.

The Active-S Humidity Control Sheets are available in four sizes, with cost starting at $15 per sheet

 

Active-S Humidity Control Sheets prevent these common problems inside sealed enclosures and cabinets:

  • Component corrosion
  • Electrical resistance
  • Component performance degradation
  • Short circuits
  • Deteriorating electrical wires
  • Dangerous arching & sparking

The KDL/D cable entry system allows cables to be installed through enclosures or other bulkhead surfaces, with the added benefit that pre-made, terminated cables can be installed without disassembling the connectors. The split-frame system enables the quick and simple installation of up to 48 cables in a single frame. Four frame sizes, starting at $16.00, fit standard cut-out dimensions and provide integrated strain relief. The KLD/D system’s robust multi-part frame design gives better mechanical stability while achieving a high degree of environmental protection.

The multi-part split-frame system clamps together with a grommet block and grommets to provide a high-density cable entry point with an IP65 environmental rating. Small and medium size grommets (from $6.00) accept cable diameters from 0.08 to 0.87 inches (2 to 22mm).
