Outdoor Armored Fiber Optic Cable Single PE Jacket Outdoor Type Fiber Optic Cable designs are the cost saving. Also, robust structure is a good solution for access. Therefore, distribution for campus & industrial plant, mining or those areas where the cable may be exposed to physical damage. Also, the fibers are placed within a gel-filled loose tube. For low fiber count up to 24 FO. Also, Central Loose Tube Armored structure is available.
Therefore, outdoor fiber optic cable guarantees the protection of cable where the mechanical damage risk exists. Also, to guarantee stability towards environmental influences such as frost and humidity. Glass yarns are applied over the tube to provide additional tensile strength and rodent protection to the cable. Also, corrugated steel tape armor provides additional mechanical (crush and rodent) protection with a high-strength ripcord. Ripcord is under the armor for easy stripping. UV (Ultra Violet) resistant Polyethylene (PE) sheath. UV PE sheath is resistant to stress cracking and UV radiation. On request, following options are available:
Color options for sheath, tube and fiber
Increased Tensile strength (Aramid yarn or Glass Yarn)
L-M-HDPE or LSZH sheath.

Central Loose Tube Metallic Armored
Outdoor armored fiber optic cable is a type of cable that is designed for use in outdoor environments. It typically consists of a central core made of optical fibers, which are surrounded by a protective sheath and an outer armor. The armor is typically made of a material such as aluminum or steel, and is designed to provide protection against physical damage and environmental factors such as water, UV radiation, and temperature changes. Outdoor armored fiber optic cable is often used in applications such as telecommunications, internet service providers, and cable television. It is also used in industrial and military settings where the cable needs to be able to withstand harsh conditions.
Outdoor armored fiber optic cables must comply with a number of standards and regulations in order to ensure their safe and proper operation. Some of the key standards and compliance requirements for these cables include:
It’s important to note that these are just a few examples of the standards and regulations that outdoor armored fiber optic cables must comply with. Additionally, for specific application like military and aerospace, there are other requirements that need to be met such as MIL-STD-810 or NASA-STD-8739.1. It’s important to check the specific standards and regulations that apply to the application the cable will be used for.
Proper maintenance and storage of outdoor armored fiber optic cables is essential to ensure their longevity and reliable performance. Here are some guidelines for maintaining and storing these cables:
Overall, handling and maintaining outdoor armored fiber optic cables with care and following the manufacturer’s guidelines will help to ensure their long-term performance and reliability.
