B-Series Breakout Corrugated Steel Tape (CST) Armored Cables


  • Ideal for installations where direct burial or rodent protection is required
  • 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 connectors to subunits and directrun to panels and equipment are desired


  • Inner cable is a fully functional B-Series Breakout riser-rated cable
  • High-performance components and construction
  • Most rugged and easy to install cable design for enterprise cabling applications
  • 2.5mm subcables and 2.0 subcables can be direct-terminated with standard connectors (2.9mm subcables also available)
  • The steel-armor is easily removed with an internal ripcord, leaving a fully functional intact riser-rated inner cable with original cable marking for identification
  • Polyethylene (A) outer jacket for excellent UV and weathering resistance
  • 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 moves, adds and changes
  • 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 36 fibers
