Freeform Ribbon® Interlocking Armored Outdoor/Indoor Riser LSHF Central Tube Cables

Sumitomo Electric Lightwave’s Freeform Ribbon® Interlocking Armored Outdoor/Indoor Riser LSHF Cables feature a flame retardant outer jacket and 12 fiber Pliable Ribbons constructed of 250 μm color-coded optical fibers for easy fiber identification. Interlocking armor adds protection against crushing forces. Additionally, the Freeform Ribbon® cable diameter with a non-preferential bend axis thereby increasing density in space constrained applications. Sumitomo Electric’s Freeform Ribbon® construction is designed to both pack densely in small form factor cables while still being capable to transform quickly, by hand ONLY, to splice-ready form similar to standard ribbon for fast and easy 12 fiber ribbon splicing (for both in-line and fusion splice-on connector splicing applications). This cable is designed for areas that require Low Smoke and Zero Halogen such as Subways systems and Tunnels.
