Tight Buffered Plenum Cable

Indoor/Outdoor Tight Buffered has a UV resistant jacket and is REACH and RoHS compliant. All multimode and singlemode cables (except OM1) utilize bend-insensitive optical fibers. Dry, super absorbent polymers (SAPs) eliminate water migration in cable interstices and has a 900um buffered design recommended for easy termination. Indoor/Outdoor Tight Buffered (Plenum) has color coded fibers for easy identification and for cables with more than 24 fibers; fibers are segregated into 12-fiber sub-units. Cables with fiber counts from 2 to 144 are available. Suitable for lashed aerial, duct, underground conduit and indoor plenum environments. Supported applications include gigabit, 10 gigabit and 40 gigabit Ethernet. Made in USA.
