Breakout Fiber Cable - Primus Cable

Breakout Cable

Breakout Cable is essentially a collective group of simplex fibers bound and held together through a shared outer jacket; these simplex fibers have a jacket of their own, allowing them to be broken out to form individual strands. The significance of this design is that these simplex fibers can then be connected to an array of devices as a patch cord, for instance, while remaining enclosed as one until the breakout is necessary. Breakout Cable is generally larger than distribution fiber cable; the breakout design provides additional strength in numbers for ruggedized drops. Common applications include short plenum and riser runs as well as use in conduits.

| Plenum Breakout Fiber Optic Cable

The Breakout Fiber Optic Cable, Multimode, 50/125 10 Gig OM4, Indoor/Outdoor, Plenum is exceptional within airflow spaces. This cable type is in accordance with the National Electric Code (NEC) Sections 770.179(b) for use in airducts, plenums, and general air-handling spaces. Direct termination is an available option, as time consuming fanout kits and pigtail splices are, therefore, unnecessary; connectors terminate directly onto the individual fibers. We offer this particular fiber optic cable in 2 to 48 strand variations. Plenum rated Breakout Fiber Optic Cable is resistant to sunlight, water, and other forms of natural decay.
