Corning Cable Systems FREEDM Ribbon Riser Cables are lightweight cables designed for indoor/outdoor installations such as campus backbones in aerial, duct and riser applications. A UV-resistant, flame-retardant jacket allows added flexibility in placi ng this cable outdoors, whether it is an aerial, duct or direct-buried application, or indoor general horizontal or riser applications. The cable consists of a ribbon stack of 12-fiber ribbons within a gel-filled central buffer tube. With easily access ible individual 250 µm colored fibers, the ribbons have readily identifiable ribbon ID numbers and fiber colors. The precise fiber and ribbon geometries result in excellent mass splicing yields. Surrounding the tube are dielectric strength members that provide tensile strength and innovative waterblocking tapes that reduce cable preparation time and weight. This design is also compatible with standard ribbon cable procedures and hardware for easy field installation and reduced labor costs.
This cabl e is available in 12 different jacket colors - blue, orange, green, brown, slate, white, red, black, yellow, purple, rose and aqua. The colored jacket allows for easy visual identification of the cables while still providing all of the required environ mental protection of an indoor/outdoor cable jacket.
