Modular Deployable Reel System

Timbercon’s Modular Deployable Reel System (MDRS) is a lightweight cable deployment system designed for demanding, harsh environment fiber optic mobile installations. The system includes many features unique to tactical fiber optic cable applications that are not offered by traditional metal style reels. It’s ideal for applications where cable needs to be deployed and retrieved quickly.

Timbercon’s MDRS is constructed of high-impact glass reinforced polymer materials that are durable, yet lightweight. A retractable crank and handle system allows operators to easily rotate the reel during payout or take-up.
