48 F Mining and Petrochemical Tray-Rated, Loose Tube, Gel-Free Cable

Corning dielectric, low-temperature, tray-rated, mining and petrochemical fiber optic cables are designed for indoor and outdoor use in mining and petrochemical backbones (aerial and duct) and horizontal intrabuilding and tunnel backbones where limited-smoke and zero-halogen requirements exist. The loose tube cable construction, pioneered by Corning, places fibers in buffer tubes and provides stable and highly reliable transmission parameters for a variety of voice, data, video and imaging applications. The SZ-stranded, loose tube design isolates fibers from installation and environmental rigors and allows for easy mid-span access. The design also provides high-fiber density within a given cable diameter, allowing flexibility to suit many system designs.
The cable’s innovative waterblocking technology eliminates the need for traditional flooding compound and allows more efficient and craft-friendly cable preparation. The specially formulated black, UV-resistant, flame-retardant LSZH inner and outer jacket complies with IEEE-383 flame test. These extra-tough double jackets resist hazards found in mines and petrochemical complexes, making this cable ideal for any harsh environment requiring a more robust cable and suitable for direct buried applications. All-dielectric construction provides tensile strength and eliminates grounding concerns. With an extended storage and operating temperature range of -50° to +75°C (-58° to +167°F), the cable is listed OFN-LS and CSA FT4-ST 1 for up to 288 fibers and cable tray-rated per CSA C22.2 No. 230 and No. 232
Note: This cable is available in 12 different jacket colors – blue, orange, green, brown, slate, white, red, black, yellow, violet, rose and aqua. The colored jacket allows for easy visual identification of the cables while still providing all of the required environmental protection of an indoor/outdoor cable jacket. Black is the standard jacket color using the part numbers shown here.
