Corning glass-yarn armored Central tube cables are designed for outdoor use for campus, city and intercity backbones in duct installations.
The 12FO (1X12) Direct Buried Cable Central Tube Fiber Optic Cable OS2 G.652.D PE Dielectric Armoured Black (Part number: 012EEG-13122A20) from Corning with 12FO and Dielectric Armoured construction . Direct buried cable is optimised for injection into ducts in optical networks and is usually directly buried or installed in ducts by air-blowing, jetted, pulled or pushed into the duct.
Corning cables can be employed outdoors for campus backbone. The central tube cable construction, by isolating the fibers from installations and environmental rigors, provides stable and highly reliable transmission parameters.
Each type of single-mode fiber has its own area of application, and the evolution of these optical fiber specifications reflects the evolution of transmission system technology from the earliest installation of single-mode optical fiber to the present day. Choose the right fiber is very important for each project/installation. The specification of the OS2 fiber is generally considered as the SMF standard for the single-mode fiber. For the OS2 G.652 fiber there are 4 subcategories: G.652.A, G.652.B, G.652.C, G.652.D.
The OS2 G.652.D single-mode fibers are the most used type of fiber for networking and communications applications. The OS2 G.652.D fiber type provides a zero dispersion at 1310nm wavelength therefor it is optimized for operation in the 1310nm Wavelength. The regular performance remains on the 1550nm wavelength.
Benefits of using the OS2 G.652.D fibers:
Dielectric Armoured is a type of fiber optic cable protection designed to provide a high degree of mechanical protection while maintaining electrical isolation. This protection is achieved by using an armor layer made of dielectric materials such as Kevlar, which is non-conductive and non-magnetic. This armor layer protects the cable from damage caused by crushing, impacts, and bending, while also providing protection from environmental factors such as moisture and temperature changes. Dielectric armored FOC is commonly used in indoor and outdoor installations where the cable may be exposed to harsh conditions.
PE (polyethylene) is a versatile jacket material that offers good protection against moisture, abrasion, and chemicals. It is highly flexible and has a low coefficient of friction, which makes it easy to install and handle. PE is also resistant to UV radiation and can withstand a wide range of temperatures, making it a popular choice for outdoor and industrial applications. However, it is less flame-resistant than other materials, which may limit its use in certain environments.
