B-Series Breakout - MSHA-Rated Deployable Cables


  • Used in mining applications where cables may need to be temporarily deployed or where a rugged jacket is required
  • Deployable cable that is ideal for use in harsh environments where deployment and retrieval for reuse are required
  • Ideal for applications that require termination of the subcable to a connector and a direct run to panels and equipment


  • Most rugged, high-strength cable design incorporating subcables for direct termination
  • Polyurethane jacketed for abrasion, cut and chemical resistance
  • Core-locked jacket for improved mechanical performance
  • Breakout cable design with individual color-coded subcables, protecting each optical fiber
  • Crush resistant and resilient, with two separate layers of aramid strength members in the subcables for individual single-fiber connector and termination pin, and overall for termination to multiway connector backshells or other housings
  • Helically stranded cable core for flexibility, deployment survivability and exceptional mechanical protection for the optical fibers
  • Can be used outdoors for temporary deployment directly on the ground, in all terrains, including severe environments
  • Suitable for industrial, mining, and petrochemical environments; chemical resistant
  • Often used with multiway military tactical connectors for maximum connector retention (400lbs.)
  • Ideally suited for use with MIL-C-38999 style military connectors; subcables terminate to individual pins, and overall strength member terminates to backshell
  • 2.0mm subcables standard
  • Flame-retardant and MSHA approved to Part 7, Subpart K of Title 30 Code of Federal Regulations (CFR)
