Freeform Ribbon™ OSP Slotted Core Ribbon – 1728F


Sumitomo Electric Lightwave’s Slotted Core fiber optic ribbon cables feature 250um color-coded optical fibers for easy fiber identification and Sumitomo’s exclusive patented pliable ribbons. Pliable ribbons enable high fiber density within a small cable diameter which in turn helps with limited duct space. The twelve fiber ribbons enable connectorization with both MPO and all industry standard connectors. The non-preferential bend axis allows for easy installation in space-constrained areas. The cable includes a dry water-blocking tape that eliminates cable flooding gels, thereby eliminating the cleaning and blocking preparation steps associated with standard gel-filled cables. By eliminating these steps, the use of a totally dry cable speeds overall installation, termination, and splicing.
