The marshalling components have a width of 10 mm, which together with the options of mounting two or three columns in each side of a standard 800m cabinet, delivers the highest packing density of 512 or 768 I/O channels per cabinet.
Many extreme-density ribbon cable designs feature a 'net design' ribbon, whereby the optical fibres are only intermittently connected, so that they collapse upon one another to achieve the required packing density. This structure is less robust than proven solid ribbons, and individual fibres can separate during handling.
The refined FS003 sand with a reduced packing density and thus a smaller tension, in contrast to the FS001 sand, was able to achieve a 50% reduction in veining (Fig.
Some of the studies were performed at lower fly ash replacement ratio, showing that finer fly ash improves the workability and cohesion of concrete mixture, and also the packing density of concrete.
With its high packing density, the new Alpha product line serves operators of cable networks and satellite ground stations.
And while the new FlexRibbon products provide high packing density, they also feature 200 and 250-micron fibre ribbons that still provide the advantages of mass fusion splicing.
Due to the high packing density, valuable space is saved compared to the EMC cable gland, according to icotek.0x20
Vortex densification allows for modulation of packing density. "Vortex densification," said Ephraim, "is the ability for coffee to be more or less 'fluffy'.
The packing density and apparent density of RCA are lower than those of NCA, and the RCA possesses the higher crushing value index compared with NCA.
All of these materials are selected from the following considerations; hydrophobicity/hydrophilicity, the number of defects and inhomogeneities in the structure, different packing density of the material.
For a simple cubic arrangement the packing density is [rho] = [pi]/6, approximately 0.52.
