Harsh Weather Indoor/Outdoor Optical Fiber Cable Introduced

23 March 2016

Superior Essex has launched a new line of optical fiber cable that works in tough weather conditions in applications that require a transition of optical fiber between indoor and outdoor environments.

The EnduraLite Loose Tube fiber cables improve on current fiber cable designs by offering increased environmental protection and dry water-blocking elements, said Superior Essex. The flexible cables are available in plenum and riser-rated designs and meet all ICEA 696 standard requirements.

The EnduraLite cables include several 3mm subunits that eliminate the need to clean off the traditional gel-based water-blocking compounds.

Each of the subunits use Superior Essex’s dry water-blocking technology that eliminates the need to clean off the traditional gel-based water-blocking compounds, and is surrounded by aramid yarns that allow the subunits to be crimped directly onto an MTP or MPO connector.

According to Superior Essex, the cables are sunlight and moisture resistant, are flexible and sturdy and are jacketed for easier handle and pull reducing the time and labor required for installation. It also comes in multiple color options and both the plenum and riser designs are ultraviolet listed sunlight resistant.
