  • Ideal for industrial and other installations requiring a metallic conduit
  • Interlocking pre-loaded armor may eliminate the need for conduit, reducing installation costs

Applications

  • Used in trunking, LAN and distribution applications where small size, lightweight, and versatile installation capability are required for ducts, plenums, and air handling spaces
  • Ideal configuration for a single termination point requiring multiple fibers
  • Aluminum interlocking armor with fluoropolymer overjacket
  • Interlocking armor can be easily removed leaving an intact inner cable
  • Greater flexibility than corrugated steel armored (CST) cables
  • Ideal for locations that require conduit for cable protection
  • Indoor/Outdoor plenum cables eliminate the need for costly cable transitions in different installation environments

Features

  • UL Listed in accordance with NEC section 770.179(a) for use in ducts, plenums and air-handling spaces
  • Fluorpolymer inner and outer jackets
  • Cable materials are Indoor/Outdoor UL-Listed OFCP and also UV, water, chemical, and fungus resistant
  • Jacket is highly chemical resistant for installation in harsh industrial environments
  • High performance tight-buffered coating on each fiber for environmental and mechanical protection
  • 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.
  • Helically stranded core for flexibility, survival in difficult installations, and mechanical protection for the fibers
  • Can be installed outside and in plenum or riser pathways inside, eliminating the need to transition cable types between environments
