Seeing the need for a robust and flexible cable that can handle tough weather conditions in applications that require a transition of optical fiber between indoor and outdoor environments, Superior Essex has announced the launch of its EnduraLite Indoor/Outdoor Loose Tube optical fiber cable. EnduraLite improves on existing I/O fiber cable designs by offering increased environmental protection and dry water-blocking elements, as well as easier handling and installation. EnduraLite cables are available in plenum and riser-rated designs, and meet all ICEA 696 requirements.
The EnduraLite cable, available in plenum and riser-rated single and multi-unit designs, consists of one or several 3 mm subunits stranded around a central strength element. Each of these subunits incorporates the latest in dry water-blocking technology, which eliminates the need to clean off the traditional gel-based water-blocking compounds, and is surrounded by aramid yarns, allowing the subunit to be crimped directly onto an MTP or MPO connector. The 3mm subunits are stranded around a central strength element that is both sturdy and flexible, and jacketed in either PVC for the riser design or PVDF for the plenum design. PVDF is naturally sunlight and moisture resistant, offering additional protection from sun exposure and water ingress. With its smooth surface and proportionately low coefficient of friction, PVDF jacketing is easier to handle and pull, reducing the time and labor required for installation. Plenum designs with PVDF jacketing are available in multiple color options. Both the plenum and riser designs are UL Listed Sunlight Resistant.
