15540ESPx Cross-Connect Drawer


I'm trying to determine the number of cross-connect adapters that can fit into a single cross-connect drawer. Cannot find any detailed information on the web site that displays this. I found a good link that shows an illustration of the adapter and it appears that each MU block can support 4 LCMB to Mux/Demux module connections (or 2 in a splitter card design). I'm hoping that I specified the information correctly by ordering a single drawer for every 2 splitter LCMBs (2 cable kits per). If anyone can confirm this or provide a good link that illustrates the layout of the drawer itself, it would be greatly appreciated. Based on my understanding the cable kits include:

2 MTP to 8MU cables

2 MU Adapters

8 MU to MU jumpers

I'm assuming based on the quantities that the 2 MU adapters fit into an enclosure that supports up to 8 adapters?? So it would require 4 MU adapters to satisfy a splitter-type LCMB to Mux/Demux connection?

Thanks in advance for anyone that can clear this up for me.
