Organize the construction and distribution of your fiber optic network with the 3M™ Fiber Closures BPEO

  • Quality and reliability are a must in today’s communication networks. It doesn’t matter if you’re installing a new network or expanding an existing one, the 3M BPEO closures are simple to use and easy to configure. The closures are mechanical, weather resistant and compact in size, enabling them to be used virtually anywhere –poles, walls, distribution boxes, manholes and handholes.

    Different sizes help you choose the right closure for your application – from the outdoor metro fiber loop all the way to customer premises and everywhere in between.

Flexible fiber deployment

  • 3M™ Fiber Closures BPEO have an integrated tray organizer that has slots for snap-in splice trays.
    • Multiple connections (multidrop) for areas with dense development
    • Mechanical double entry for uncut cables
    • Splice trays for single-circuit management and splitter integration
    • Accommodates high fiber counts – up to 576 fusion splices in the 3M™ Fiber Closure BPEO Size 3

The following components are included in each 3M BPEO Closure

  • Kit contents for the 3M™ Fiber Closures BPEO
    • Closure body, including cover and valve for leak test
    • Blank plugs for all port openings
    • Splice tray organizer with storage for microstructure cables and bundles
    • Fastening elements
    • Assembly instructions

    In order to customize your 3M™ Fiber Optic Closure BPEO, select the splice trays, mounting kits, and 3M™ External Cable Assembly Modules (ECAMs) separately.

The 3M™ Fiber Optic Closures BPEO Accessories

Brochure: 3M™ Fiber Optic Closures BPEO (PDF, 1.93 MB)

Accessories include a wide range of splice trays, 3M™ External Cable Assembly Modules (ECAMs) and 3M™ Mounting Kits. The accessories have been developed exclusively for use with 3M™ Fiber Optic Closures BPEO. With the parts listed below, you can configure your fiber-optic splice closure precisely to the application area and purpose.

  • 3M™ BPEO Splice Trays are modular and can accept fusion or mechanical splices, or splitters, depending on the model.

    3M™ BPEO Splice Trays

    The splice trays form the core of your closure. Your choice will depend on the splice technology you use (fusion or mechanical) as well as the use of 3M™ Planar Light Circuit (PLC) Splinters. Please note the splice capacity of the respective closure.

  • 3M™ External Cable Assembly Modules (ECAMs) are mechanical and prepared outside the closure.

    3M™ External Cable Assembly Modules

    Mechanical cable entries for single or double ports are available for cables of many different diameters. ECAMs prepared entirely outside the closure and can be installed with just basic tools.

  • Mounting kits are available for different applications.

    3M™ Mounting Kits

    3M™ Fiber Optic Closures BPEO Size 1, Size 1.5, Size 2 and Size 3 require wall and pole brackets if they are to be installed accordingly.
