Camplex Debuts 24-Channel Small Diameter Tactical Fiber

Camplex has announced the availability of a new 24-channel, small-diameter tactical fiber cable series for harsh environments where size and weight are concerns.

Camplex said the 24-channel single-mode tactical fiber optic cable with a polyurethane jacket can be used for temporary deployment directly on the ground in all terrains. The cables meet requirements for broadcast and pro-audio applications that require outdoor-rated crush and impact resistance.

The helically stranded core provides flexibility, deployment ruggedness and mechanical protection for the optical fibers. Fanouts are protected by polyurethane furcation tubing.

Cables are available with LC, SC or ST connectors and in a variety of lengths.  The cable series meets MIL-PRF-85045 specification and are also available on reels which feature storage for safely transporting the fanouts.
