D-Series Distribution Riser Rated Cables

Applications:

  • Indoor/outdoor tight-bound tight-buffered design allows cables to be installed in intra-building backbone and inter-building campus locations without costly transitions between cable types
  • Ideal configuration for a single termination point requiring multiple fibers

Cost Savings:

  • 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
  • No need to splice outdoor cable to indoor cable at building entrance
  • High crush resistance may eliminate the need for innerduct

Features:

  • High performance components and construction
  • Cable materials are indoor/outdoor - UL-listed OFNR and UV, water and fungus resistant
  • UL Listed in accordance with NEC section 770.179(b) for use in vertical runs in building riser shafts or from floor to floor
  • Wide operating temperature range of -40°C to +85°C
  • Helically stranded core for greater flexibility and mechanical protection of the optical fibers
  • High strength-to-weight ratio
  • 2-144 fiber configuration is smaller and lighter than comparable sub-grouped cables made by others: ideal for installation in areas with limited space or tight bends
  • Can be armored for additional protection in direct burial and aerial installations
  • Interlocking armor can be applied to cables as an alternative to conduit installation
