OFS Expands the AccuRibbon® DC Fiber Optic Cable Family
Sep 13 17
OFS announced the expansion of the AccuRibbon® DC Fiber Optic Cable product family to include fiber counts up to 864. These totally gel-free ribbon cables will be available in dielectric and metallic/armored versions. Currently, AccuRibbon DC cables are offered in fiber counts up to 432. These 100% gel-free cables are designed to significantly reduce both cable preparation times and cable weights, which help lower deployment costs, reduce splicing expenses and speed installation/restoration times. Super-absorbent polymer (SAP) tapes replace the gel in AccuRibbon DC cables to impede water migration in the cable core. These cables and water-blocking tapes have a 15-year, fieldproven history in diverse outside plant (OSP) installations and applications. In addition to meeting Telcordia GR-20 Issue 4 requirements, the AccuRibbon DC cables have successfully met OFS’ aggressive coiling simulations where the cables are twisted and coiled under real-world installation conditions. The installation simulation testing performed is significantly beyond the current minimum testing standards utilized by the industry. The expanded-fiber-count AccuRibbon DC cables are scheduled for commercial availability during fourth quarter 2017.
OFS Expands Outside Plant and Premise Cable Product Lines to Include New Rollable Ribbon Technology
Sep 5 17
OFS introduced two new cable product families enabled by the company's new fiber optic, rollable ribbon technology. First, OFS is expanding its field-proven AccuTube® "ribbon in loose tube" cable product line by offering the new AccuTube+ Rollable Ribbon (RR) Fiber Optic Cable. Available with 1728 and 3456 fibers, these cables can be installed in common 11/4" and 2" ducts, respectively. The AccuTube product line is well-known in the industry for ruggedness, fiber protection, ease of installation and ready accessibility to fiber ribbons. In addition, OFS is introducing 144 and 288 fiber rollable ribbon versions of its popular indoor/outdoor AccuRiser™ Fiber Optic Cable. These cables bring the triple benefits of mass fusion splicing, compact size and excellent flexibility for tough indoor routing applications. As fiber counts rise, but duct space and cable storage space remain at a premium, these smaller, more flexible cables can be excellent alternatives to more traditional cable technologies. In a rollable ribbon cable, 12 fibers are connected intermittently by matrix material to form a very flexible ribbon, allowing the ribbons to be rolled into very tight bundles, doubling the fiber density of a cable. These fibers can then be unrolled into a ribbon that can be spliced with traditional flat ribbon machines and procedures. Traditional flat optical fiber ribbons have been deployed since the early 1980s. The optical fibers are held in place by a somewhat rigid matrix material and placed in different cable structures. These ribbons are easily stackable and spliced in cables, but are not as space efficient within the cable structure as rollable ribbon. Rollable ribbon technology improves fiber density in cables retaining the splicing efficiency so valued by ribbon cable users.
