Indoor Plenum Standard Ribbon Cables

Sumitomo Electric Lightwave’s Indoor Plenum Standard Ribbon Cables are the industry’s first and only with up to 432 fibers. The cables are designed for fiber density and the savings of valuable duct space, making them an ideal choice for intra-building applications. These cables feature 250 um color-code optical fibers for easy fiber identification and Sumitomo’s exclusive patented Easy Split & Peel technology for easy fiber access and unprecedented ease of handling and splicing. The twelve fiber ribbon groupings enable easy connectorization with both MPO and all industry standard connectors. Flexible dielectric members provide mechanical durability within a flame retardant jacket, while the non preferential bend axis allows for easy installation in space-constrained areas. The all-dielectric cable construction eliminates the need for grouping or bonding. These plenum rated cables meet or exceed OFNP and CSA FT-6 approvals and listings.
