OCC’s mining solutions deliver reliable mining connectivity. Our fiber optic cables are designed to meet high-survivability standards and repeatedly endure the severe mechanical and environmental stress found in surface and subsurface mining. Our MSHA-rated cables are optimized to withstand the rigors of difficult cable pulls, high-tensile loading, and are easy to install. Where other manufacturers’ cables fail, OCC’s MSHA cables are particularly well-suited to survive the harsh environment associated with mining applications. OCC’s unique cabling and connectivity configurations provide long-term reliability, security, and even reusability in mines.
All of these factors make OCC's cables a practical and reliable means of high-capacity data transmission in challenging environments without the delicacy normally associated with traditional fiber optic cables.
To complement our MSHA cables, OCC manufactures a variety of rugged, multi-channel fiber optic and electro-optic connectors. One such family of products is our compact Mini-Hermaphroditic Connector (MHC® II). These connectors are available in both multimode and single-mode versions as well as electro-optic design, and, along with many of OCC’s harsh environment connectors, are hermaphroditic. This allows cable assemblies to be daisy chained together, making it simple to extend the underground fiber optic backbone system without the need for gender-changing adapters. Power or control signals for active equipment may be supplied using hybrid connector options that add electrical and optical signals within the same connector body. These connectors withstand extreme environmental demands and they are specifically designed for reliable data transmission signals.
To complement the OCC mining system, OCC offers the Modular Advanced Reel System, or MARS, a lightweight, durable system constructed of a high-impact glass-reinforced polymer that is easily transported and ideal for applications where cable needs to be deployed and reeled in quickly and stored efficiently. Available with a multitude of storage and deployment accessories, the MARS system allows mining operations to easily replace fiber optic segments with limited down time.
