  • 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
  • Indoor/Outdoor plenum cables eliminate the need for costly cable transitions in different installation environments

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
  • 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
  • Low-smoke PVC jacket
  • 2 to 24 fibers
  • Cable materials are Indoor/Outdoor UL-Listed OFNP and also UV, water and fungus resistant
  • 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
  • High specific strength-to-weight ratio and compact cable design for limited conduit space and tight bends in long cable pulls
  • High crush resistance may eliminate the need for innerduct
  • Can be installed outside and in plenum or riser pathways inside, eliminating the need to transition cable types between environments
  • Interlocking armor can be applied to cables as an alternative to conduit installation
