AFL's Indoor/Outdoor Breakout Cable Sets New Standards

Spartanburg, SC - AFL is setting a new standard for indoor / outdoor breakout fiber optic cables. Suitable for rugged applications and installations requiring increased performance, AFL’s breakout cables feature a UV- and fungal-resistant semi-pressure extruded outer jacket. The jacket extrusion technology provides superior crush resistance, protecting a helically-stranded core of sub-units. The sub-units measure 2.5mm, allowing for easy termination, and use a water-blocking aramid which further protects the tight-buffered cable.

Previously, AFL only offered indoor / outdoor distribution cables and indoor breakout cables. This innovative, new design combines the ruggedness of an indoor / outdoor cable with the functionality of a breakout cable. The new design is riser-listed and available in fiber counts from two to 12. MSHA qualification is currently in process.
