B-Series Breakout - PVC Jacketed, ABS-Approved Cables


  • Ideal for installations requiring an extremely rugged and reliable cable design where maximum mechanical and environmental protection are necessary
  • Easiest cable to install where direct termination of the subcable to a connector and a direct run to panels and equipment is desired


  • High-performance components and construction
  • UL listed in accordance with NEC sections 770.179(b) for use in vertical runs in building riser shafts or from floor to floor
  • ABS-approved for 2005 Steel Vessels Rules 1-1-4/7.7, 4-8-3/9.1
  • ABS-approved for 2001 MODU Rules 4-3-4/13.1.6
  • Suitable for indoor or outdoor applications
  • Core-Locked™ outer jacket design for installation survivability; long-term, trouble-free service
  • Ideal for use in long, vertical installations
  • 2.0mm and 2.5mm subcables can be direct-terminated with standard connectors (2.9mm subcables also available)
  • Subcabled fiber is environmentally and mechanically protected
  • Ideal for use in point-to-point runs in adverse environments
  • Direct termination to subcable provides additional strain-relief for better connector retention during moved, adds, and changes
  • Design is ideal for direct pulling with mesh grips
  • Cable materials are indoor/outdoor- UV, water and fungus resistant
  • Wide operating temperature range of -40°C to +85°C
  • High-performance 900µm tight-buffered coating on each optical fiber for environmental and mechanical protection
  • 2- to 72-fibers

Cost Savings:

  • Direct termination to subcable may eliminate the need for patch panels and patch cords, and reduces connector loss
  • 900µm buffer eliminates the need for costly and time-consuming installation of fan-out kits or pigtail splices because connectors terminate directly to the fiber
  • High crush resistance may eliminate the need for inner duct
