Simplex, Dubplex, and Quad Interconnect OFNR
Simplex, Duplex and Quad Optical Fiber Interconnect Cables are typically used for patch cords and intrabuilding installations. Superior Essex designed these cables for environments where small size, flexible construction and flame resistance are required. These cables are available in both riser and plenum versions. Higher performance optical fibers are offered, including bend insensitive G.657.A1 single mode and 10G/300 OM3 and 10G/550 OM4 laser optimized 50 μm multimode. The design consists of flexible tight buffer material extruded over the fiber to a diameter of 900 μm for use with standard connectors. Dielectric yarns are applied for additional strength and a flame retardant PVC jacket covers the strength members. Appropriate materials are used to achieve an OFNR (riser) or OFNP (plenum) rating. Standard 2.9 mm and small form factor 2 mm diameters are available for simplex and duplex designs.
