This 8 fibre, SMOF, Bundle Cable, is used for connection to a GPON 8 Port Card. It is 1.8 metres (approx) overall length. At each end of the central cable member is a break –out to individual 2 mm dia SMOF cords. One end has A/SC connectors fitted to the cords whilst the other end has SC PC connectors fitted to the cords. Each of the 2mm dia cords is a different color, for connection to GPON ports. The SMOF meets G657A specification, with no water peak in the wavelength profile graph. The optical fibre cords have the following features: individually colored 9 um core dia; 125 um cladding dia; and a 2.0mm outer sheath. Each cord has physical properties of: 100 Newtons tensile strength; an MBR of 15 ‐ 20mm; ability to withstand a small crushing load; and ability to withstand a small impact load. The corded cable has a yellow PVC sheath; an MBR of 70mm.
This cord is intended for use in HDODF’S, panels or subracks, to avoid congestion, where space is at a premium.
Be very careful NOT to subject the 2.0 mm dia cord/s to high values of tension, or they may become damaged, or suffer a failure.
