AFL updates its indoor-outdoor plenum distribution cables

March 5, 2013 – AFL says it has updated its line of indoor/outdoor plenum distribution cables. Suitable for inter-building campus network cabling, AFL says the NFPA 70 Article 770-compliant plenum cable supports installations where a transition from a traditional loose-tube outside plant cable is problematic and cost prohibitive. Based on 900µm tight buffered designs, the cable family can be terminated in the field using either mechanical or splice-on connectors. The outer jacket is moisture, fungus and UV-resistant, making the cables suitable for both outdoor and underground buried-duct applications. The cable is suitable for spaces requiring plenum, riser, general purpose and outside plant UL flame ratings, says the company, adding it is available in single-mode and multimode, including laser-optimized 50µm OM4. Cables within the family are also available with options up to 24 fibers.
