The RLH Hardened Infrastructure Patch Panel for Outside Plant (HIPPO) is an ideal solution for splicing and patching fiber optic cable where a weatherproof rating is desired. With substation, power plant, and extreme outdoor environments in mind, the HIPPO was designed to fit the needs of these demanding environments while at the same time being easy to install and modify.

This outdoor fiber solution is enclosed in a NEMA 4X, UL Listed, non-corrosive, non-conductive, light weight, and easy to modify fiberglass enclosure. It’s especially well suited for extreme temperatures and corrosive environments. It can be wall mounted with its included mounting feet or pole mounted with an optional pole mount kit. It is secured by two pad lockable snap latches.

It comes standard with 12 fiber adapter plate slots, fiber management cable guides, fiber splice trays, splice sleeves, document holder, distribution chart, cable mounting tiedowns, and Velcro® straps for securing splice trays and fiber cable. The included
accessory kit contains liquid tight break through plugs and cord grips, together with fiber strength member clamps allowing for the safe entrance and exit of fiber optic cable.

Fiber adapter plates may be ordered separately or preinstalled and are available with ST, SC, FC, LC, MTRJ, UPC and APC style adapters. When ordered using our configuration matrix, the adapter plates and pigtails are preinstalled for convenience.
