UC FIBRE 432: Fireproof, waterproof, flexible

Users should be aware that combined indoor/outdoor cables must be absolutely waterproof according to the current EN 60794-1. The Multimedia Solutions BU of the Prysmian Group has the right solution here: the fibre optic loose tube cables of the N-series in fibre counts up to 432. They are currently the only cables on the market that combine high water resistance with a ... Read more

Compact and reliable

Fibre optic cable

Cables are exposed to very high tensile forces during installation and often also during operation. If the tensile load capacity is just sufficient for the installation, the forces acting on the cable can increase the fibre elongation. This means greater stress and thus a shortened fibre service life. To counteract this, the Prysmian Group's Multimedia Solutions (MMS) BU ... Read more

Without compromise

When installing fibre optic cables, companies often have to compromise between the factors of safety, quality, cost and application practices. For example, some cables with a high fibre count do not meet the required CPR classes - and vice versa. But there is another way: with Draka CPR Cca and B2ca loose tube cables with up to 288 optical fibres, users get everything in one. The ... Read more
