Industrial Fiber Optic Cables

Fiber optic cables are becoming ever more present in the industrial environment, as they are immune to electromagnetic interference and provide outstanding bandwidth. When considering fiber optic cables for the industrial environment, how the fiber optic cable is terminated, is a key component in addition to the resistance to temperatures, abrasion, UV and lubricants. In the industrial environment, shorter lengths of fewer fibers are typically needed. It may not be practical to have to terminate the fibers using an enclosure and fan out kits. When developing our Levels offerings, the ease of termination was taken heavily into consideration. 

 

Use the chart below to find the right fiber optic cable for your environment. Locate the fiber type, fiber count, and construction and whether you want a plenum or riser cable. Then, choose the appropriate level for your environment and click the part number to view the product details.
