Ultra-Compact, Leading-Edge Cable Helps Double Fiber Density While Reducing Equipment Congestion

Product Description

As next-generation frames and electronics systems become more complex and increase in density, there’s no need to reduce your cabling specifications. Instead, look to the OFS MicroCord™ Breakout Cable.

Developed to help revolutionize high-density equipment applications, the MicroCord Cable design uses 1.2 mm cords to help double the cable packing density over cables featuring traditional 1.6 mm cords. This capability helps create better pathway usage on the equipment interface and helps to reduce total congestion in equipment bays.

World-class OFS optical fiber lies at the heart of each MicroCord Breakout Cable. Aramid yarn is wrapped around the non-buffered, 250 micron (µm) optical fiber. This construction is then carefully encased in a durable, flame-resistant jacket to form a MicroCord. These MicroCords are then arranged around a dielectric central organizer. Finally, a ripcord and a PVC outer jacket are applied to complete the cable.

Features and Benefits:
  • Highly compact cable increases fiber density and reduces congestion while remaining lightweight and easy to deploy
  • 1.2 mm cords allow streamlined breakout and termination
  • Free of heavy metals and ROHS compliant
  • UL Listed Riser per UL 1666 Riser Flame Test and OFNR-FT4
  • Available with bend-insensitive single-mode OFS fibers including AllWave® FLEX+ ZWP Fiber
