GT Technologies develops crush-proof fiber optic cabling

Greene Tweed & Co Benelux BV : 01 November, 2004  (New Product)
The proliferation of fiber optic technology around the globe requires more protective cabling to ensure data transmissions are not degraded or lost. In some areas cabling sits on top of the ground where it can get crushed by feet or vehicles. Greene, Tweed Technologies has developed Fiber-Protec cabling that delivers an optimum combination of tensile strength, crush resistance and pliability, therefore meeting the challenges fiber optic applications present.
The proliferation of fiber optic technology around the globe requires more protective cabling to ensure data transmissions are not degraded or lost. In some areas cabling sits on top of the ground where it can get crushed by feet or vehicles. Greene, Tweed Technologies has developed Fiber-Protec cabling that delivers an optimum combination of tensile strength, crush resistance and pliability, therefore meeting the challenges fiber optic applications present.

The Fiber-Protec cabling utilizes PVC-coated interlocking stainless steel armor, allowing for maximum bend radius of the cable without impeding the optical transmittance of the fiber. This one-of-a-kind protective sheathing provides superior tensile strength over other cabling. Fiber-Protec offers greater pull capability than standard optical cabling. Its kink-resistant feature permits easy deployment and retrieval. Fiber-Protec allows for placement of multiple fibers inside the cabling, giving the user the ability to transfer more data in a smaller area. Fiber-Protec cabling, coupled with Greene, Tweed's series of fiber optic connectors, guarantees the user environmentally sealed data transfer.

Because of its ability to withstand a range of environmental abuse, users of Fiber-Protec can anticipate greater service life from this innovative product. Bill Dunne, defense market manager for Greene Tweed, states, 'The high-performance construction of Fiber Protec makes it ideal for a variety of demanding defense applications, from unmanned vehicles to military shelters. Fiber-Protec's unique properties are perfect for a range of tactical communications.'

Single piece lengths are available up to 200m; larger lengths of Fiber-Protec are available by using industry standard splicing methods. Additionally, Fiber Protec can be terminated to multi-channel connectors as well as both ST and FC connectors.
