Technical Specification

CCSI Flame Retardant Flare Flex Optical Fiber Cables

GENERAL

The cable is applicable for indoor, on cable trays/ ladders including underground installation and inside conduits.

REFERENCE STANDARDS

The offered fiber optic cable complies to the ITU-T G.652.D, ITU-T G.651, IEC 60794, TIA/ EIA standards.

CONSTRUCTIONS

CABLE STRUCTURE

Fully waterblocked cable

– Each fibers are inserted into thixotropic gel-filled coloured thermoplastic (PC-PBT) loose buffer tubes

– Water ingression protection using swellable material

Central loose tube design

– Single loose tube

Anti-Rodent material

– Provides rodent bite protection

Low Smoke Zero Halogen Flame Retardant (LSZH FR) jacket

– Black UV resistant Low Smoke Zero Halogen Flame Retardant (LSZH FR) sheath as outer protection

– Reduces the amount of toxic and corrosive fume emission

– Other sheathing are available upon request
