Armored Fiber Cable

Armored Fiber Optic Cable, Plenum, Riser, Direct Burial

Armored fiber optic cable utilizes an interlocking armored design which eliminates the need to install rigid conduit to meet building codes. The armor provides added protection for installation in high traffic areas where security is required. It is ideal for industrial networking applications and is more flexible than corrugated steel armored cables.

Primus Cable supplies armored fiber optic cable for plenum, riser, and direct burial applications. Fiber networking cable installed in plenums or air ducts must adhere to rigid National Electric Code guidelines. This is to ensure that in the event of a fire, plenum rated armored fiber optic cable generates low smoke, preventing the spread of smoke and fire.

The Armored Fiber Optic Cable, Multimode, 62.5/125 OM1, Plenum is manufactured of Corning glass and is suitable for both indoor and outdoor applications. This plenum armored cable comes in 2, 4, 6, 8, 12, 24, and 48 strand variations. It consists of an outer PVC jacket over a PVC inner jacket with tight buffered fibers surrounded by yarn.

The core of this plenum armored fiber optic cable is spirally wrapped in aluminum strip allowing easy installation while resisting physical damage. Save time and money with Primus Cable’s armored fiber optic cable, it does not require inner duct or conduit.

Riser rated armored fiber optic cable is certified to prevent the spread of fire from floor to floor in vertical networking applications. Typically they are tested for compliance with ANSI/UL 1666-1997, Standard Test for Flame Propagation Height of Electrical and Optical-Fiber Cable Installed Vertically in Shafts. NFPA NEC 2005 Art 770.51(B) FPN.

Optical Fiber Conductive Riser (OFCR) cable does not have the fire or smoke rating of plenum rated fiber, so it can not be used in lieu of OFCP plenum fiber. OFCP plenum fiber can be used in vertical applications in place of OFCR riser cable though.

The Armored Fiber Optic Cable, Single Mode, 9/125, Riser is safe for indoor and outdoor distribution fiber runs from floor to floor. It is available in 2 strand through 48 strand configurations and has a wide operating temperature range of -40°C to +85°C. This armored fiber is protected by interlocking aluminum armor with a PVC outside jacket. The interlocking armor can be easily removed from the cable.
