RUGGED

Most of OCC’s SMPTE cables are made with the Ultra-Fox™ Plus deployable buffer system: triple thickness 500 micron acrylate coating, together with a hard elastomer 900 micron tight buffer offer maximum fiber protection.

LESS MIGRATION

OCC’s SMPTE cables use fabric fillers and nylon wrap instead of PVC, which minimizes cable migration and increases flexibility.

EASY INSTALLATION

Fibers and power groups in OCC’s SMPTE 3-IN-1 Stadium cable are uniquely identified by TIA color coding standards, making installation easier and less

LIGHTER

The Aramid yarn central strength member in SMPTE FLEX increases flexibility and decreases weight: a must when truck weight is a consideration.
