B-Series Breakout Plenum Rated Cables

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 micron 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

Features:

  • High performance components and construction
  • UL Listed in accordance with NEC sections 770.179(a) for use in ducts, plenums and air-handling spaces
  • Most rugged and easy to install cable design for enterprise cabling applications
  • Standard 2.0mm subcables can be directly terminated with standard connectors. 2.5mm and 2.9mm subcable sizes are also available
  • 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
  • Design is ideal for direct pulling with mesh grips
  • Cable materials are indoor/outdoor - UV, water and fungus resistant
  • Wide operating temperature range of -40°C to +85°C
  • High performance 900 micron tight buffered coating on each optical fiber for environmental and mechanical protection
  • Jacket highly chemical resistant for installation in harsh industrial environments
  • Interlocking armor can be applied to cables as an alternative to conduit installation
  • 2 to 48 fibers
