What is the CampusLink Dry Loose Tube?
The CampusLink Single Jacket Dry Riser Fiber Optic Cable is a loose tube fiber optic cable used in indoor-outdoor applications. It is specifically used in aerial lashed, duct, and direct burial applications.
The CampusLink Loose Tube Indoor/Outdoor Dry Riser has many features and benefits. These include fiber identification with TIA standard color coding and a flame retardant, black UV-resistant outer jacket. This particular CampusLink fiber optic cable has dry buffer tubes to simplify access and reduce prep time. This cable also has the benefits of flexible kick-resistant buffer tubes, bend-insensitive single-mode optical fibers, and support of high-performance networks.
Construction of a Fiber Optic Cable
The CampusLink Single Jacket Dry Riser Fiber Optic Cable is defined by its construction. In this example, we will examine the single-mode options of this cable. See the tables below for specifications.
|F = feet|
|M = meters|
|Riser/FT4 ⎸Dry Tubes ⎸OFNR/FT4|
|(blank) = none|
|AJ = Jacketed aluminum|
|SJ = Jacketed steel|
|12 = 12f per unit or tube|
|HB = Single-Mode (ITU G.652 C & D) Low Water Peak|
|ES = Enhanced Single-Mode (ITU G.652 C & D)|
|CE = Corning™ SMF28e+ Single-Mode|
|B1 = Bend-Insensitive Single-Mode (ITU G.657.A1 & G.652.D)|
|B2 = Bend-Insensitive Single-Mode (ITU G.657.A2 & .B2, & G.652.D)|
|002 to 288 fibers|
Fiber Grade Single-Mode
|Attenuation (dB/km)||Wavelength (nm)||Fiber Type|
|E1 = 0.40/0.40/0.30||1310/1383/1550||HB, ES, or CE|
|E3 = 0.35/0.35/0.25||1310/1383/1550||HB, ES, B1, B2 or CE|
Below we will break down the construction of a fiber optic cable. The part number we will be dissecting is F DRLDB AJ 12 HB 048 E3.
- F = Feet
- DRLDB = Indoor/Outdoor Riser All-Dielectric Single Jacket
- AJ = Jacketed Aluminum
- 12 = 12f per unit or tube
- HB = Single Mode (ITU G.652 C & D) Low Water Peak
- 048 = 48 fibers
- E3 = attenuation
From the breakdown of this cable, we are able to see that this cable is an indoor-outdoor single-mode, single jacket riser fiber optic cable. Its family is Riser/FT4 ⎸Dry Tubes ⎸OFNR/FT4. It has an aluminum jacket with 48 fibers, 12 fibers per unit, and it has an E3 attenuation classification.
