Interlocking Armored Indoor Plenum Standard Ribbon Cables

Sumitomo Electric Lightwave’s Interlocking Armored Indoor Plenum Standard Ribbon Cables, featuring a fiber count of up to 432 fibers, is ideal for high density networks and saves valuable duct space in the building. The cable features 250 μm color-coded optical fibers for easy fiber identification and Sumitomo Electric’s patented Easy Split and Peel technology for easy fiber access and unprecedented ease of handling and splicing. The twelve ribbon groupings enable easy connectorization with both MPO and industry standard connectors. The cable also features an interlocking armor adding protecting against crushing forces. Flexible dielectric strength members within the cable core provide mechanical durability within a flame retardant jacket and the non-preferential bend axis allows for easy installation in space-constrained areas. These plenum rated cables meet or exceed OFCP and CSA FT-6 approvals and listings.
