Designed specifically for indoor use, this design with 2.5 mm outer jacket is constructed with low smoke zero halogen (LSZH) cable materials from GiHCS® optical fibers.  They are appropriate for indoor riser installations in enclosed or sealed locations.  These cables are crimp and cleave compatible with ST or SC connectors. LSZH materials also offer a wider operating temperature range than comparable HCS cables.
