What are OptiTuff Mini Fiber Cables?

A better question would be, what aren't they? Belden's revolutionary OptiTuff Mini Fiber Cable happens to be the only cable in the industry that combines the durability of metal-armored solutions with the performance and installation ease of non-armored solutions. That means that opportunities for both cost- and space-savings are approaching down the road. 

This product, coming soon to Accu-Tech, utilizes advanced, ruggedized thermoplastic material as an alternative to traditional metal-armored cable. This cable has excellent mechanical properties, while also being more flexible, easy to handle, and quick to install compared to traditional metal-armored cables; OptiTuff, with this distinctive set of characteristics, will be an optimal solution for projects requiring easy-to-install fiber.


Belden-OptiTuff-Mini-Fiber-Cables-2Why Choose OptiTuff?
One of OptiTuff’s standout features is its high crush-resistance. This feature can be difficult to find, and combined with this product’s increased durability, will lead to an overall more reliable cable. These incredible features will also eliminate the need for conduit.

Belden ensures that OptiTuff’s anti-kink properties, as well as its small bend radius, will also provide the flexibility required for navigating tight spaces and challenging turns within an infrastructure. 


Additionally, OptiTuff will offer reduced size and weight. With fewer layers and the elimination of a metal armor, Belden's OptiTuff solution is:

• Up to 90% lighter than metal armored cable

• Up to 70% smaller in diameter than metal armored cable

• Up to 50% smaller in diameter than non-armored cable

Not only are these cables lighter and easier to install than traditional metal armored cable, but these properties will allow for space-savings in high-density situations where space is at a premium! And because a grounding kit isn’t necessary, there are even more significant savings in material and labor costs. Altogether, this makes OptiTuff a cost-effective alternative to traditional metal-armored fiber.

How Can OptiTuff Can Work For You?
This revolutionary product offers space and financial savings, as well as rugged, yet flexible, characteristics, making it an easy choice over metal-armored cable. Stay in tune with Belden updates, as OptiTuff will be in stock soon at an Accu-Tech near you.
