    Bulk Fiber, 8 Strand, Single Mode, 9/125, Distribution Cable, OFNP Plenum Rated, Indoor Only, Tight Buffer, Yellow Outer Jacket

    This plenum distribution fiber cable is used in trunking, LAN and distribution applications where small size, lightweight, and versatile installation capability are required for ducts, plenums, and air handling spaces. It's ideal for configurations requiring a single termination point with multiple fibers. The plenum distribution fiber optic cable uses high performance components and construction and is UL Listed in accordance with NEC section 770.179(a) for use in ducts, plenums and air-handling spaces.

    Single Mode Fiber Information

    Single mode fiber cable (Synonyms mono-mode optical fiber, single-mode fiber, single-mode optical waveguide, uni-mode fiber) is a single strand of glass fiber with a diameter of 8.3 to 10 microns that has one mode of transmission. Single mode fiber has a relatively narrow diameter, through which only one mode will propagate typically 1310 or 1550nm wavelengths. Single mode fibers carry higher bandwidth than multimode fiber, but require a light source with a narrow spectral width. Single-mode fiber gives you a higher transmission rate and up to 50 times more distance than multimode. The small core and single light-wave virtually eliminate any distortion that could result from overlapping light pulses, providing the least signal attenuation and the highest transmission speeds of any fiber cable type.

    • Applications:
      • Used in trunking, LAN and distribution applications where small size, lightweight, and versatile installation capability are required for ducts, plenums, and air handling spaces
      • Ideal configuration for a single termination point requiring multiple fibers
    • Features:
      • High performance components and construction
      • High specific strength-to-weight ratio and compact cable design for limited conduit space and tight bends in long cable pulls
      • Helically stranded core for flexibility, survival in difficult installations, and mechanical protection for the fibers
      • Lower installed cost
      • High performance tight-buffered coating on each fiber for environmental and mechanical protection
      • High crush resistance may eliminate the need for innerduct
      • 900 μm buffer eliminates the need for costly and time-consuming installation of fanout kits or pigtail splices because connectors terminate directly to the fiber.
      • UL Listed in accordance with NEC section 770.179(a) for use in ducts, plenums and air-handling spaces
    • Indoor ("S" Jacket)
      • Indoor-only flexible flame retardant plenum jacketed cables available
      • 2 to 12 fibers
      • Can have interlocking armor applied to cables as an alternative to conduit installation

    Tight Buffer Fiber Advantages over Gel-Filled Loose Tube Cable

    Tight-Buffered Cable
    Loose-Tube Gel-Filled Cable
    One fiber per buffer — excellent mechanical and environmental protection
    Multiple fibers per buffer
    No gel filling needed — exceptional tight-buffered cable construction and aramid strength members provide excellent protection for every inch of the cable
    Gel filling needed to prevent moisture collection in tubes
    No cleaning needed — no gel, easy to handle, install and terminate, saving time and costs, and improving reliability
    Gel filling must be chemically cleaned — messy, costly and time consuming
    No stiff strength member needed, more flexible cable — easier to handle
    Requires stiff cable strength member — more difficult to handle and install
    Cable is “tightbound” and can be pulled around multiple bends or hung vertically (no fiber axial migration)
    Should not be pulled around multiple bends or hung vertically (fiber axial migration) — installation limitations
    Easy to terminate, no breakout kits or splicing required
    Difficult to terminate, breakout kits or splicing required — time consuming, requires expensive equipment and skills
    Lower total installed costs
    Cable purchase cost may be slightly lower
