Bulk Fiber Optic Cables - Made in USA

American Fiber Optic Cable Products

Bulk fiber optic cable is ideal for high bandwidth data applications over both long and short distances at the speed of light. This is possible with very low attenuation and signal loss since it is propagation of a light signal rather than electrical. Our made in America bulk fiber optic cable is available in tight buffered distribution form.

Its designed for applications requiring a single termination point with multiple fibers. It can be installed in intra-building backbone and inter-building campus locations without expensive transitions between cable types. We offer both plenum and riser rated bulk fiber optic cables for indoor and outdoor installations.

When running bulk fiber optic cable, please take into consideration whether or not it will be running from floor to floor or through airflow spaces. For trunking applications where fiber distribution cable is being run through plenum areas, we offer the Distribution Fiber Optic Cable, Single Mode, 9/125, Indoor/Outdoor, Plenum. This type of fiber is essential where small size, light weight, and versatility are required.

The single mode fiber itself measures 8.3 to 10 microns in diameter with one mode of transmission. It requires a light source with a narrow spectral width for signal propagation over a 1310 to 1550nm wavelength. It sends data over 50 times greater distance than multimode. This bulk fiber optic cable is in compliance with NEC section 770.179(a) for installation in plenums and air ducts. It is available in 2 strand through up to 72 strand versions.

It has a high strength to weight ratio with a compact design to handle tight bends in long cable pulls when only limited conduit space is available. The helical stranded core of the fiber distribution cable lends it flexibility and strength to protect the fibers. High crush resistance eliminates the need of innerduct.

In vertical runs, Primus Cable supplies riser rated cable like the Distribution Fiber Optic Cable, Single Mode, 9/125, Indoor/Outdoor, Riser. This riser bulk fiber optic cable is available with up to 144 strands and can be used for both indoor and outdoor projects. It can be armored for additional strength in direct burial and aerial applications. Single mode fiber also provides a higher transmission rate over multimode, and can travel over up to 50 times more distance.

Optical Fiber Nonconductive Riser (OFNR) distribution fiber cables are distinct from Optical Fiber Nonconductive Plenum (OFNP), and general-purpose optical cable. OFNR cables cannot be installed in plenum areas since they do not have the required fire and smoking rating as Plenum rated cables. OFNP plenum cables can be used as substitutes for OFNR cables.

Primus Cable is your one stop shop for bulk fiber optic cable and connectivity products. We stock a wide selection of fiber connectors like the Fiber Optic FAST Connector, Pre-Polished, Single Mode, 9/125, LC, 6 Pack. These LC fiber optic connectors are pre polished and ready to install in the field. A 900µm boot is provided with each connector, and no epoxy is required.

Precise mechanical alignment insures low return loss, and fiber can be re-seated if necessary. Primus Cable has been a top supplier of network equipment, cables and connectivity products for almost 20 years. Our customer service team is eager to assist you with any questions you might have.
