Fiber Savvy offers an extensive range of custom cabling to suit your specific fiber optic cable needs. Below you will find general information on the options available for our custom fiber optic cables. If there is an option you are looking for, but do not see listed, please give us a call at 951-801-5780 and we will be happy to help you.
All of our fiber cables can be ordered with Single Mode 9/125, Multimode 62.5/125 OM1, Multimode 50/125 OM2 and Multimode 10 Gig 50/125 OM3 fiber. With options for pre-terminated cables including connectors such as LC, SC, ST and even MTP connectors, we can custom make your fiber cables for your particular application. Fiber Savvy offers indoor only, indoor/outdoor and outdoor only outer jackets using Plenum, Riser and Polyethylene materials to provide the best protection and meet any fire-code requirements needed. These cables can be cut to any desired length and come in 2, 4, 6, 8, 12, 24, 48 and 72 strand counts, allowing for versatility in custom applications.
These cables are made for indoor use, coming in both Plenum and Riser (PVC) jackets. Plenum rated cables are safe to use in plenum ducts and meet low-smoke standards as defined by the NFPA (National Fire Protection Agency).
Using a more rugged jacket than our indoor cable, these cables can safely run inside conduit directly into a building with protection from water damage or other elements they may be exposed to. Also available in Plenum to meet low-smoke standards in plenum ducts.
The most rugged jacket available. Cables designed to be used in conduit, aerial applications or secured to the exterior of a building. These cables can be ran a maximum of 50 feet inside a building due to fire-code regulations.
All of the above cable types can have armor added to help protect from rodents and other hazards in direct burial applications. The armoring eliminates the need to use conduit, although an armored cable can still be ran inside innerducts and conduit. The armoring is created by using interlocking pieces of aluminum or steel to add additional protection to your fiber optic cable without sacrificing the cable’s flexibility.
Called Lucent Connectors, Little Connectors or Local Connectors, these snap-in connectors are typically used for high density connections and are compatible with plug-and-play devices such as SFP modules and XFP transceivers.
Referred to as Subscriber Connectors, Square Connectors or Standard Connectors, these push-pull connectors are the most common choice for FTTH (fiber to the home) applications in use for Datacom and Telcom. GBIC modules also require this connector type.
These Straight Tip connectors utilize a bayonet-style coupling type, enabling a simple twist-on and twist-off installation.
Fiber fan out kits and breakout kits are used when terminating large strand count fiber optic cables that use 250um bare fibers, which can be broken or damaged easily when terminating. These kits are designed to strengthen the fibers by adding a tight buffer to each individual fiber or fiber group, bringing the thickness to 900um.
Fan Out Kits
Convert loose tube buffered fibers into tight buffer, making them ready for connectors. Our fan out kits have an enclosure called a furcation unit which attaches to the existing outer jacket of the cable. The 900um tight buffer tube, or furcation tubes, are then placed over the 250um fibers and into the furcation unit, which is then closed and locked around the tight buffers. The fibers are then ready to be terminated and have the connectors attached.
Similar to the fan out kits, the breakout kit utilizes a furcation unit and furcation tubes to strengthen the fibers. The breakout kit also includes a 3mm diameter jacket with aramid yarn strength members which go over the 900um tight buffer. A heat-shrink tube is then applied to provide strain relief and limit fiber bending.
Pull eyes are used to make pulling the fiber cables easier and safer when running a cable through walls or ceilings. A pull eye typically consists of an extra piece of cable or wire added to the end of the cable and either mesh netting or plastic to help protect the connectors from damage while the cable is pulled. If you are installing the cable from a central point, be sure to have pull eyes added to both ends of the cable to allow the cable to be pulled from both sides toward the termination points.
Plastic Pull Eyes
Plastic pull eyes are made by securing a piece of plastic around the connectors and attaching an extra piece of looped cable to the end to allow for easy pulling of the cable. This is a great option for someone looking to only pull one run of cable.
Mesh Pull Eyes
The mesh pull eyes are similar to the plastic pull eyes in that they protect the connectors during the pulling process, but the mesh pull eye is able to be reused for other cable pulling jobs. The mesh tube is placed around the connectors, secured with tape around both ends and uses the remaining slack to create the “pull eye” at the end of the cable by looping the remaining mesh back toward itself.
