Corning dielectric, tray-rated, mining and petrochemical fiber optic cables are designed for indoor and outdoor use in mining and petrochemical backbones (aerial and duct) and horizontal intrabuilding and tunnel backbones where limited-smoke and zero-h alogen requirements exist. The loose tube cable construction, pioneered by Corning, places fibers in buffer tubes and provides stable and highly reliable transmission parameters for a variety of voice, data, video and imaging applications. The SZ-stran ded, loose tube design isolates fibers from installation and environmental rigors and allows for easy mid-span access. The design also provides high-fiber density within a given cable diameter, allowing flexibility to suit many system designs. The cabl e’s innovative waterblocking technology eliminates the need for traditional flooding compound and allows more efficient and craft-friendly cable preparation. The specially formulated black jacket is UV-resistant and has a flame-retardant LSZH inner and outer layer. These extra-tough double jackets resist hazards found in mines and petrochemical complexes, making this cable ideal for any harsh environment requiring a more robust cable and suitable for direct buried applications. All-dielectric constr uction provides tensile strength and eliminates grounding concerns. With an extended storage and operating temperature range of -50to +75C (-58to +167F), the cable is listed OFN-LS and CSA FT4-ST 1 for up to 288 fibers and cable tray-rated per CSA C22.2 No. 230 and No. 232.

Shipping and Fulfillment Policy

When you order products from, the order is processed within one to two business days. Orders received during non-business days are processed on the next business day.

You have several shipping options for parcel shipping: standard ground 5 to 7 business days, 2 to 3 business days, or next business day. orders ship to addresses within Canada. orders do not currently ship to addresses outside Canada or military/government APO/FPO locations. We are also not able to ship to Post Office Box addresses. If you wish to ship to an address outside Canada or a military/government location, please contact your local Anixter sales representative to discuss your options.

In addition, offers Less-Than-A-Truckload “LTL” option for products that cannot be shipped via parcel shipping. For products that will be shipped via LTL, you will be provided with a set of Accessorials to select from to provide Anixter with additional shipping considerations, such as residential delivery, inside delivery, liftgate or limited access.

  • Residential Delivery - A residential delivery charge applies to shipments to a home or private residence, including locations where a business is operated from a home, or to any shipment in which the shipper has designated the delivery address as a residence.
  • Inside Delivery - When requested, freight carrier unloads shipments from or to areas that are not next to the trailer, such as shopping malls or office buildings. An elevator must be available to provide service to floors above or below the trailer.
  • Liftgate - Freight carrier provides liftgate service, if needed, to load and unload a shipment when loading/unloading docks are not available.
  • Limited Access Locations - A limited access location is a site where pickup or delivery is restricted or limited.

Shipping charges are calculated based on the shipping option you select, and is prepaid by you at the time of shipment.
