Fiber Optic Cables

Tight Buffer

Application

This cable is used for interconnection of the distribution boxes and end devices. The cable is very suitable for various indoor and outdoor applications, including routing between buildings within ducts and inside building up to riser shafts.

 Description

The Distribution Cable consists of color-coded PVC tight buffered fi bers. The fi bers are reinforced with aramid yarn for superior strength and contains no metallic elements. The fi bers are jacketed with Flame Retardant PVC or LSZH compound.

Features

Used in LAN and distribution applications where compact size and lightweight are required
Suitable for both indoor and outdoor use - no need for splicing at the building entrance
Flame-retardant or LSZH version for indoor installations
Fungus-resistant, water-resistant, and UV-resistant for outdoor installations
Cable can be armoured for additional protection in direct burial and aerial installations
Highest specific strength-to-weight ratio for limited conduit space
Economical for longer distance runs where cable cost is significant
High quality tight-buffered coating on fiber for environmental and mechanical protection
