4) Flame resistant outer Low Smoke Zero Halogen jacket
Indoor/outdoor tight buffer fiber optic cables are ideally suited for installations that require partial
or complete routing of pathways outside the building. These cables can be installed in conduits,
inner-ducts and steam tunnels, as well as within building riser and plenum locations.
The tight buffer feature of these indoor/outdoor cables eliminates the need for breakout kits and
or other special termination equipment associated with tight tube cables.
The outer jacket is comprised of a sunlight resistant Low Smoke Zero Halogen compound that allows for the cable to be exposed to direct sunlight without the concern of material degradation and greatly reduces moisture migration. All fiber types are available, including 50/125 μm, 62.5/125 μm and Single mode.
The design consists of flexible tight buffer material extruded over the fiber to a diameter of 900 μm for use with standard connectors. Metallic flexible armor is applied for additional outer protection.The armor is covered with aramid yarn that provides extra strength for tensile resistance during pulling.
