Occasionally that is the solution, i'd say roughly 10-15 of my cross connects within the last 6 months are scotchlok'd - its a terrible practice. Most of the time we just declare the pair defective and use a spare.

Could you imagine Scotchlok's in the CO.
I'd lose my ever loving mind.

Perhaps, but the connections would probably last forever.

Now about that 'ever loving mind' thing: Do you mean that you still have anything left of your mind after having worked in this business? Mine went out the window years ago.

at&t still carries those tools but they also use the cabinets with the white and orange terminals. You just use a screwdriver on them.

Completely different system. There are IDC systems that use simple quarter-turn split barrels, not even close to the 4010/4011 system.

I can't tell from the picture, but they could be full-turn traditional screw terminals where the jumper is stripped and wrapped around the screw shank. 3M, Corning and HUB make them all day long and they are in wide use here in Verizon territory. They also use a simple flat-head screwdriver to tighten the screw.

White/orange terminal marking in cross connect cabinets has been quite the norm for many years, regardless of the manufacturer or termination method. Others use many other colors as long as tip and ring are easily-identifiable.

I know 3m makes a product called Quick Connect System, which is model 2810. That looks like this...

That is the only product I can think of that is orange but copper. (We do not use this - atleast anywhere that I am aware of). We generally only use orange in mulitmode fiber.

old OSP - It's unbranded inside but I believe it was manufactured by Northern Telecom for Bell. Prior to our use of 3M, and later Corning.

Is black/red the standard for OSP cross-connects up North?
