Optic Fibre

FIBRE UNITS/BUNDLES – FU

The fibre bundles are set in a buffer layer providing excellent dimensional and thermal stability. The outer thermoplastic layer provides a high level of protection and excellent installation properties. The unit is designed for blowing into microducts and tube bundles.

Fibre bundles are available in fibre counts of 2, 4, 6, 8 or 12

MICRO BLOWN CABLE

Micro blown cables offers higher fibre count in a small fibre cable construction. These cables is suitable for fibre blowing into our low-friction microducts. Today a micro blown cable with a fibre count of 216 fibres is only 8.5mm in diameter. Please contact us for more information.

  • Suitable for blowing into micro duct of 10/8,  12/10,  14/10 or 16/12mm

FIBRE OPTIC PATCH CORD

patch

Fibre Optic Patch Cord is a fibre optic cable capped at either end with connectors that allow it to be rapidly and conveniently connected to CATV, fibre optic switching and other telecommunication equipment. It is used for making patch cords from equipment to fibre optic cabling. Having a thick layer of protection, it is used to connect the optical transmitter, receiver and the terminal box.

OPTICAL FIBRE ADAPTERS

fibre_mids

Fiber optic adapters (also called couplers) are designed to connect two fibre optic cables together. They come in versions to connect single fibres together (simplex), two fibres together (duplex), or sometimes four fibres together (quad). Adapters are designed for multimode or single mode cables. The single mode adapters offer more precise alignment of the tips of the connectors (ferrules).

It is ok to use single mode adapters to connect multimode cables, but you should not use multimode adapters to connect single mode cables. This can cause misalignment of the small single mode fibres and loss of signal strength (attenuation).
