ercon, Inc., a fiber optic product and solution manufacturing company providing a vast array of connectivity solutions, today introduced the Light ARMOR fiber optic cable assembly product line, designed to provide customers with a light weight, durable, and easy to work with fiber cable solution for applications requiring more ruggedization than available with traditional cable optic patch cords.
The Light ARMOR fiber optic cable incorporates the functionality of a traditional fiber cable with the durability and longevity of ruggedized cable, at a much lighter weight. Constructed with protective plastic jacketing, Timbercon Light ARMOR cable assemblies are crush resistant, bend limiting (protecting fiber minimum bend radius), and water proof, making these cables suitable for a myriad of applications from interconnects to industrial and semi-harsh environment conditions.
This new product line is a complimentary to Timbercon’s Ruggedized Stainless Steel and harsh environment product lines, providing clients with a single source for various types of ruggedized, protective, and harsh environment products.
“This product line allows us to offer a high performance solution, positioned between our traditional fiber optic cables and our heavily ruggedized stainless steel, outside plant, and harsh environment products,” states Jayson Lizardo, Product Manager for Timbercon. “These products provide increased fiber protection while keeping product weight to a minimum, making this the ideal solution for applications requiring additional product durability, but stopping short of the heavily ruggedized products.”
The Light ARMOR Cable Assemblies are available in simplex and duplex construction with LC, ST, SC, FC, MU, MIL ST, and MIL termini connector options, single mode, multi mode, or polarization maintaining fiber types, and a variety of custom configurations to suit any application.
