high density plenum fiber optic cables

Plenum High Density Fiber Optic Cable

These high density plenum fiber cables are made to use where space is a premium and a small size, lightweight cable with a very tight bend radius is required. Specifically designed for 40GbE and 100GbE applications, each subcable contains up to 12 fibers so the high-density fiber optic cable can be easily ribbonized for MTP connectors or other MTO-style connectors. The small diameter not only saves space and increases the capacity of fiber cables used in tray systems, it also increases cooling power efficiency for under raised floor cabling systems in data centers.

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.
