Fiber Optic Cables

Breakout PVC Jacketed Cable

Application

Breakout Cable is designed for routing to different locations and direct termination of fi bers in the fi eld. The cable is mostly suitable for pre-terminated cable assemblies.

Description

The cable contains 2 to 36 fi bers which are individually buffered tight or semi-tight construction. Each fi ber is individually protected in a mini cable. Aramid yarn will be applied either inside the mini cable or within the inner jacket of the cable. The color coded mini cable may be stranded around a central strength member which can be either FRP or fl exible all-dielectric. Outer Jacket may be PVC or LSZH.

Features

Most rugged and "user friendly" cable design for Local Area Networks
For installations where ease of termination and termination costs are important factors
Short and moderate distance links between buildings or within a building, where multiple termination points are needed
Breakout cables are designed for direct termination with standard connectors
Cable ideal for direct pulling with wire mesh grips
Suitable for both indoor and outdoor use -- no need to for splicing at the building entrance
Flame-retardant or LSZH version for indoor installations
Fungus-resistant, water-resistant, and UV-resistant for outdoor use
High quality tight-buffered coating on each fi ber for environmental and mechanical protection
