Top 9 Guidelines for Fiber-Optic Cabling Installations

1. Never directly pull on the fiber itself. Fiber optic cables have Kevlar aramid yarn or a fiberglass rod as their strength member. You should pull on the fiber cable strength members only. 2. Never exceed the maximum pulling load rating. On long runs, use proper lubricants and make sure they are compatible with the…

How To Strip Armored Fiber Optic Cable

In your fiber optic cable assembly process, good stripping procedures are unquestionably essential. What happens if the fiber is damaged during the manufacturing process? A small nick or scratch in the optical fiber acts as a time bomb. When the connector is subjected to stress or temperature cycling, this flaw can eventually lead to a…

Top Uses for Armored Fiber Optic Cables

What are Fiber Optic Cables and How Do They Work? A fiber optic cable is constructed up of glass strands. The strands are slightly thicker than human hair. Each strand has a core in the middle that permits light to pass through. Each core is encased in cladding, a layer of glass that bounces light…

What is Armored Fiber Optic Cable?

Armored fiber optic cable provides a significant amount of protection for fiber optic cable without sacrificing flexibility or performance inside fiber networks. This means being resilient and reliable when exposed to rodents, moisture, and other potentially damaging conditions. Armored fiber cable has become the backbone of educational campuses, corporate and retail buildings, and small to…

Aluminum Interlocking Armor (AIA) vs Stainless-Steel Micro-Armor

Ever since the introduction of fiber cables within the market, there were only two methods for protection of the sensitive cables. Those options were Aluminum Interlocking Armor (AIA) or building a physical conduit for the fiber cable to go through. Both have proven to be costly, labor intensive, and inefficient forms of protection considering how…

Why use armored fiber cable?

Traditional Innerduct Installations Prior to the development of armored indoor/outdoor fiber optic cable, fiber cable installations required the installation of an innerduct. An innerduct is a plastic tube that is dragged into position to act as a channel for fiber optic cable and is rated for the environment in which it is installed (such as…
