Contact us about availability
Product Description This yellow 500-foot spool of armored fiber optic distribution cable is intended to use for long-distance indoor runs at high data transfer speeds which is necessary to power today's advanced networks and current - as well as future - infrastructure needs. The armor eliminates the need for a separate conduit. Our quality cable consists of 12 singlemode fibers (9-micron core) inside an aramid yarn wrapped in a flame-retardant yellow PVC outer jacket. This out jacket effectively allows for flexibility, as well as protects the 9 um core from environmental hazards that can damage or diminish the core's function. Single mode fiber is optimized to work with fiber optic equipment using light wave lengths of 1310nm (nanometers) or 1550nm, and has a maximum attenuation of (0.5/0.4) dB/Km. The cladding diameter is 125 microns. This particular cable is Plenum Rated. Plenum spaces are the area between floors or above office areas for heating/cooling airflow. If an office were to catch fire, this plenum area could easily allow the spread of the fire to more floors or across the entire building. Plenum rated cables are jacketed with a fire-retardant plastic jacket of either a low-smoke polyvinyl chloride (PVC) or a fluorinated ethylene polymer (FEP) for less toxicity during a fire. * This is not gopher cable.
