Compact and reliable

Glasfaserkabel

Cables are exposed to very high tensile forces during installation and often also during operation. If the tensile strength is just sufficient for the installation, the forces acting on the cable can increase the fiber elongation. This means a higher load and thus a shortened fiber lifetime. To counteract this, the BU Multimedia Solutions (MMS) … Read more

Without compromises

When installing fiber optic cables, companies often have to make compromises between security, quality, cost and application practices. For example, some cables with a high number of fibers do not meet the required CPR classes – and vice versa. Draka CPR Cca and B2ca loose tube cables with up to 288 fibers give users all … Read more
