B-Series Breakout Riser Rated Tray Cables


  • Ideal for installations requiring and extremely rugged and reliable cable design where maximum mechanical and environmental protection are necessary
  • Typical industrial uses are factory automation, power generation and other utilities, oil and gas refining, and surface mining
  • Easiest cable to install where direct termination of the subcable to a connector and a direct run to panels and equipment are desired
  • Ideal for locations requiring low-temperature performance along with a flame rating


  • Individual fibers and strength members protected in a subcable configuration
  • Most rugged cable design with individual subcables for routing to diverse intelligent devices with direct connector termination at each device
  • Independently tested to CSA C22.2 No. 230 (tray cables)
  • Fibers may be directly terminated at factory devices or central locations using connectors with no further protection required
  • L-jacket is UV, fungus and moisture resistant
  • Designed for indoor/outdoor installations, including cable trays
  • 2 to 72 fiber counts are available with 2.0mm or 2.5mm subcables
  • Low-temperature PVC outer jacket (J material) provides excellent performance and flexibility at low temperatures
  • Wide operating temperature range of -50°C to +75°C
  • Core-locked™ jacket prevents cable from flattening and the jacket from wrinkling in tight bends:
    • Permits pulling with direct attachment of wire mesh grip; not need to access inner aramid strength members
    • Improved crush and tear resistance
    • Contains 25% more material than conventional jackets
  • High crush and tensile load ratings compared to similar tray service fiber optic cables
  • Oil resistant for uise in industrial applications
  • UL listed in accordance with NEC section 770.179(b) for use in vertical runs in building riser shafts or from floor to floor
  • Designed to exceed the flammability requirements of Chapter 8 of IEEE 383
