Industrial networks must contend with unforgiving physical and environmental conditions not found in other enterprise applications. From real-time sensors on the factory floor to office monitoring and control, a properly designed network must deliver productivity, efficiency, and reliability 鈥 day after day. OCC鈥檚 fiber optic cables and
connectivity components are proven to withstand the harshest environments, allowing systems to succeed where others may fail. Ultimately, OCC makes your company safer and more productive 鈥 both inside and outside the plant environment.
OCC鈥檚 experience in engineering and manufacturing fiber optic cables, connectors, and enclosures designed for severe environments, including military tactical deployment, means our products deliver exceptional performance in the industrial environment. We work closely with customers to identify specific challenges and offer solutions that deliver the optimal mechanical, industrial, chemical, and environmental performance.
With more than 25 years of experience supplying military tactical and tight-buffered indoor/outdoor fiber optic cables, OCC understands the requirements for tight-buffered fiber optic cables that can withstand the most challenging conditions found in industrial areas.
Unlike conventional cable jackets, the special Core-Locked鈩 jacket featured on many of our fiber optic cables is extruded under high pressure directly over the cable鈥檚 core, resulting in the internal surface of the cable jacket having helical cusped ridges that interlock with the subcables. Wire mesh grips can be used directly over the jacket because the cable core cannot slip and move axially within the cable jacket during installation. This eliminates jacket damage that may occur with other cables. The Core-Locked鈩 jacket contains 25 percent more material than conventional jackets. This helps keep the cable cross-section circular for better crush and impact protection and provides improved tear resistance during installation. A ripcord is included for easy outer jacket removal.
Our Ultra-Fox鈩 cable features 100 kpsi proof-tested fiber, a primary coating of UV-cured acrylate material to a diameter of 250 渭m, and a secondary buffer to 900 渭m. The composite primary coating and secondary buffer may be mechanically removed to the 125 渭m glass diameter in one step. This is typically done for direct termination with connectors. The versatile buffer system permits mechanical stripping in short lengths (about 1 cm) to remove the secondary buffer and leave the 250 渭m primary coating intact. This 250 渭m buffered fiber is available for splicing to similar buffered fibers from loose-tube cables. The 250 渭m coating may then be further mechanically stripped to the 125 渭m glass diameter.
Our Ultra-Fox鈩 Plus cables feature 100 kpsi proof-tested fiber, a primary buffer of UV-cured acrylate material to a diameter of 500 渭m, and a secondary hard elastomeric buffer to 900 渭m diameter. This provides the ultimate environmental and mechanical protection and is identical to the buffering on our military tactical cables. This buffering system can be easily mechanically stripped directly to the glass for termination with connectors or for splicing.
