Introduction of 4-Core Armored Fiber Cable

Fiber Optic channels are expeditiously becoming the gigabit-per-second interconnect technology for high speed system designers. Fiber Optic technology is simply a method of carrying information from one point to another in the form of light. Fiber Optic is madedescribe the image up of a thin strand of glass which serves as an information super highway. The light utilizes this super highway as a transmission medium over which information travels.

Fiber Optics can send and receive data faster opposed to copper conducted electrical current because the data is transmitted with light pulses through the glass core. Having such a great advantage of speed also comes with an immense disadvantage. Since the Fiber Optic Cable is made out of a thin strand of glass, the cable is very fragile and must be handled very carefully. But what if you want the high speed of fiber and the durability of a copper cable? Then Armored Fiber Cable might be the product you need.

Common Fiber Optic Cable can be divided into Duplex Fiber Optic Cable and Simplex Fiber Optic Cable, Armored Fiber is considered ruggedized Fiber Optics. The transmission speeds are equal, but the optical cable is equipped with a hard Kevlar shield that is encased by a stainless steel braid, which increases the durability 450%. Armored Fiber Cable is designed to withstand in the harshest environments. The standard Fiber Optic configurations are simplex and duplex:

Simplex Armored Fiber Cable (the left figure)duplexsimplex

Available in 9/125, 50/125, and 62.5/125
One strand of cable
One connector on each end

Duplex Armored Fiber Cable (the right figure)

Available in 9/125, 50/125, and 62.5/125
Two individual cables grouped together
Two connectors on each end

4-Core Armored Fiber Cable 

Available in 9/125, 50/125, and 62.5/125
Four individual strands of Fiber shared through one ruggedized protective cable
4 connectors on each end

4 cores

As Fiber Optics continue to modify the face of high speed interconnection technology, Fiberstore’s 4-Core Armored Fiber raises the bar yet again. With the incorporation of the 4-Core’s light weight Kevlar design and additional connector options, it is a perfect fit for any high speed system designer that needs to factor durability into their communication equation.
