Plenum Dry Loose Tube Fiber Optic Cable

Primus Cableplenum loose tube fiber is composed of one to six sub-units, water blocking yarn, an optional central strength member, water blocking tape (only for 72 fiber) an aramid ripcord, and a PVC outer jacket. Each sub-unit consists of 12 colored glass fibers and water swellable yarn with a PVC jacket 3mm in diameter. All component materials meet the EU RoHS and REACH Directive standards. Sub-units can be color-coded or sequentially numbered.

According to National Electric Code (NEC), a plenum is a "compartment or chamber to which one or more air ducts are connected and forms part of the air distribution system." That is to say, as a plenum, the space above an acoustic tile ceiling would have to extend above other rooms in the same building or be open to ducts connecting it to other parts of the building. The concern is that during a fire, if there is burning material in a plenum air space, smoke and fumes can travel through air ducts to the whole building. For this reason, there are codes to restrict the types of materials (such as cables) that can be placed in the plenum.
