  • Ideal for installations requiring an extremely rugged and reliable cable design where maximum mechanical and environmental protection are required
  • Installed in ducts, plenums, and air-handling spaces
  • Easiest cable to install where direct termination of the subcable to a connector and a direct run to panels and equipment are desired
  • Direct termination to subcable may eliminate the need for patch panels and patch cords and reduce connector loss
  • 900μm buffer eliminates the need for costly and time-consuming installation of fanout kits or pigtail splices, because connectors terminate directly to the fiber
  • High crush resistance may eliminate the need for innerduct

Applications

  • Ideal for installations requiring an extremely rugged and reliable cable design where maximum mechanical and environmental protection are required
  • Installed in ducts, plenums, and air handling spaces
  • Easiest cable to install where direct termination of the subcable to a connector and a direct run to panels and equipment are desired

COST SAVINGS

  • Direct termination to subcable may eliminate the need for patch panels and patch cords and reduce connector loss
  • 900 µm buffer eliminates the need for costly and time-consuming installation of fanout kits or pigtail splices because connectors terminate directly to the fiber
