The Modular Advanced Reel System (MARS) is the industry's first lightweight cable deployment reel system designed specifically for the demanding needs of harsh-environment fiber optic installations. Unlike traditional metal-style reels, MARS is a lightweight, modular system constructed of an impact modified polymer that is easily transported and is ideal for applications where cable needs to be deployed and reeled in quickly and stored efficiently. In addition, the MARS system offers a variety of deployment options including optional frames, backpacks, shipping cases, and cable acquisition platforms throughout. This enables customers to meet the demands of diverse applications and uses with one modular reel and accessories platform. The OCC MARS reel can be used with simple deployable axials ("broom sticks") or with integrated A-Frames, cable acquisition cradles, transit case systems, tripods, bumper mounts, backpacks, backpacks with fiber optic slip rings, and cartridge systems. The MARS reel itself incorporates options for fiber optic cleaning kits: flip-out handle, 30 ft. built-in divider, connector cradle design, and stackable features. All these features (with a lower weight than common reel systems) make MARS the most advanced fiber optic reeling system available in today's market!
