Characteristics and Characteristics of Armored Fiber Patch Cords
What is an armored jumper?
Armored patch cord is a new type of fiber optic patch cord, specially designed with a layer of stainless steel sleeve to protect the optical fiber. It has the advantages and functions of standard fiber patch cords, but at the same time has the durability of armor.
The structure of the armored jumper
Armored fiber jumper refers to adding a small diameter stainless steel sheath to the fiber, and then wrapping the bare fiber with a layer of aramid yarn and helical stainless steel armor.
What is an armored fiber patch cord and its characteristics?
Ordinary fiber optic cable VS armored fiber optic cable
A small-diameter helical stainless steel sheath is mainly added to the outside of the optical fiber, which enhances the compression resistance, and also ensures the same flexibility as the standard optical fiber jumper and various superior optical properties of the optical fiber itself. The micro-bore stainless steel hose acts as a protective layer closest to the fiber, preventing damage caused by mechanical forces.
The high-strength aramid reinforcement ensures that the optical fiber has no tensile strain. The outer diameter is the standard optical cable. It is suitable for the application of various connector parts. , Light weight, good bending performance and high flexibility.
Some armored jumpers also use high-strength PVC as a surface material, which is flame-retardant, chemical-resistant, tear-resistant, and increases the softness and elasticity of the armored fiber-optic jumper.
Features of Armored Jumpers
Armored fiber optic patch cords have the characteristics of high strength, tensile strength, compression resistance, anti-rat bite, and not easy to be crushed and damaged. The armored jumper can be directly laid outdoors and in various harsh environments without the use of protective sleeves. The bending and diameter of the optical cable are not greatly limited, which greatly saves space and increases the simplicity of construction and deployment. , reducing the construction cost. Although the armored fiber optic cable is strong, it is actually as flexible as a standard fiber optic patch cord and can be bent at will without breaking.
Armored fiber patch cords can have SC, ST, FC, LC, MU and other terminal interface types. It can be applied to complex environments such as building wiring, optical connection of key equipment room equipment, field operations, sensor detection, optical fiber to the home, and residential backbone network wiring. The stainless steel sheath can protect the fiber optic patch cord to withstand extrusion and prevent rodent penetration. Another application for armored fiber optic patch cords is in data centers, where they can provide flexible interconnections for active equipment, passive optical equipment, and cross-connects.
