Interlocking Armored Indoor Riser Standard Ribbon Cables

Sumitomo Electric Lightwave’s Interconnected Armored Indoor Riser Standard Ribbon Ccables feature a flame retardant outer jacket, 250 μm color-coded optical fibers for easy fiber identification, and Sumitomo’s exclusive patented easy split and peel technology for easy fiber access and unprecedented ease of handling and splicing. The twelve fiber ribbon subunits enable easy connectorization with MPO splice-on connectors and ribbon pigtails. These cables are an excellent choice for intra-building connectivity applications for data center and other network application scenarios.

Flexible dielectric strength members provide mechanical durability within a flame retardant jacket and the non- preferential bend axis allows for easy installation in space-constrained areas. The cable also features an interlocking armor adding protection against crushing forces. The Cables meets OFCR, and CSA FT4 specifications and are available in all fiber types.
