Spartanburg, SC – Ideal for rugged applications and installations requiring high performance, AFL's Indoor/Outdoor Low Smoke Zero Halogen (LSZH) Breakout Cables feature a durable IEC and UL Standards compliant zero halogen, UV and fungal resistant outer jacket. These cables are available from two to 24 fibers with variable sub-cable dimensions that support specific termination and routing requirements. Sub-cables can be specified at 2.0 mm, 2.4 mm or 2.9 mm diameters and include AFL’s industry-proven 900 µm tight buffer for ease of termination. These solutions are highly customizable and tailored to the needs of the customer. Additional strength members are applied to support wedge-style industrial termination schemes.
