B2ca Fiber Optic Cable / U-D(ZN)BH -Reaction to fire: (Euroclass) EN 13501-6: B2ca -, Non-Metallic Armored Fiber Optic Cable is the economical option for low fiber counts, suitable for indoor and outdoor use. This cable can be used for LAN and WAN system backbones, telecommunications connection lines, FTTB (fiber to the business, fiber to the building) connection lines, same as for FTTH (fiber to the home) house connections. Fire-resistant, watertight and UV-resistant sheath makes it ideal for mixed indoor and outdoor installations. Robust structure is a good solution for access and distribution for inside the building for FTTX, FTTH application or those areas where the fiber cable may not be exposed to heavy physical damage. The fibers are placed within a dry loose tube. For low core counts available up to 24FO, U-D(ZN)BH “euroclass B2ca” Fiber Optical They shall be protected from the heavy mechanical damage risk exists.
Glass yarns are applied over the tube increasing pulling strength of cable to provide additional tensile strength. Low Smoke Zero Halogen Free sheath which is resistant to stress cracking and UV radiation. Fully dielectric construction protects the fiber optic cable and also the devices connected from the electric shocks or magnetic interferences and also gives flexibility. On request following options are available:
Other number of tubes Colour options for sheath, tube and fiber
Increased Tensile strength (Aramid or Glass Yarn)
L-M-HDPE or LSZH sheath.
Euroclass B2ca Optical Fiber Cable – CPR for cables in Compliance
CPR for cables (Construction Products Regulation) for cables became a legal requirement in July 2017. CPR for fiber optic cables is having an intended use for permanent installation in buildings and construction works, to be accompanied by a Declaration of Performance (DoP). This requirement relates only to the Reaction to Fire performance of Fiber Optic, Data Lan Cables, Power Cables, etc.. As part of CPR for cables, all copper and fiber cables sold into the EU market must comply and hold the CE mark on it. Every CPR product also requires a Declaration of Performance (DoP) from the manufacturer that identifies the product, it is intended use and its Euroclass characteristics.
EN 50575 enables designers and installers to consider the contribution that cables make to the spread of fire. As cables run between rooms and floors or above ceilings and are often made from flammable materials. it’s important that the fire risk can be assessed easily. They can also be a source of ignition if badly installed, damaged or faulty.
Declaration of Performance (DoP), in a standard format which must include:
