The 1FO (1x1) Drop Central Tube Fiber Optic Cable SM G.657.A2 LSZH Ivory (Part number: EE6202L0000010SNO) from Cablescom with 1FO. Drop cable is a light weight, robust cable, used in optical networks, where the installation is up to the customer premises.
The 1FO (1x1) Drop Central Tube Fiber Optic Cable SM G.657.A2 LSZH Ivory from Cablescom is a Drop cable with 1 fibers within 1 central tube. This distribution cable for optical networks has a central PBT loose tube structure, a LSZH outer sheath with special smoke and fire performance and aramid yarns as traction-resistant reinforcement. It is totally dielectric and provides low macro-bend and micro-bend loss and seamless splicing. The optical fibers comply with ITU-T recommendations G.657.A2.
For indoor installations in FTTH networks. Bend-optimized fiber that is compliant with the installed base of G.652D fibre for indoor applications, for bend radio down to 10 mm.
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 OS2 G.657 standard single-mode fibers were developed to allow a better bending radius regarding the G.652 standard. For the OS2 G.657 fiber there are 4 subcategories: G.657.A1, G.657.A2, G.657.B2, G.657.B3.
The G.657.A2 fiber type is characterized by 7.5 mm minimum bending radius. These specifications of the G657 fibers allow to have a better cost-efficiency due to compact cable designs and reduced space requirements. Find some benefits when using the G.657.A2 fiber type:
LSZH (low smoke, zero halogen) is a jacket material that is designed to limit the release of smoke and toxic fumes in the event of a fire. It is made without halogens, which makes it environmentally friendly and safe for human health. LSZH is highly resistant to moisture and chemicals, making it suitable for harsh environments. It is commonly used in public buildings, transportation systems, and other areas where safety is a primary concern. However, LSZH may be more expensive than other materials, and it may have a lower temperature rating, which may limit its use in certain applications.
Single mode fiber uses a LASER light source, is a type of optical fiber with a small core diameter that allows only one mode of light to propagate. It is used in telecommunications and data transmission systems to transmit signals over long distances with low attenuation and high bandwidth. Single mode fiber is ideal for high-speed and long-distance applications, such as internet backbone networks, cable television networks, and fiber-to-the-home (FTTH) services. Its narrow core reduces the dispersion of light, allowing signals to travel further and faster than with multimode fiber.
