TechLogix Launches Ruggedized Fiber

TechLogix Launches Ruggedized Fiber

Integrators typically choose between cost and durability when selecting a fiber optic cable: standard distribution cables deliver low cost but lack protection against rodents and rough handling, whereas armored cables offer enhanced protection but are often 3x more expensive and 5x bulkier. 

TechLogix now offers a compromise with ECO Series™ Ruggedized Fiber. Available in both bulk spools and as pre-terminated custom cables, ruggedized fiber features a strengthened jacket that's flame-retardant, UV-rated, water-rated and fungus resistant in a small diameter (3.0 - 4.8mm), ultra-flexible cable construction.

Ruggedized cable is ideal for exposed and heavily handled applications, such as: 

  • ISP, telecom and network drops
  • Demarcation wiring
  • Building-to-building connectivity
  • Multiple dwelling unit (MDU) connectivity
  • Outdoor installation in ducts, conduit and corrugated tube
  • Indoor installation in riser spaces, plenum spaces and trays

Plus, the flexible ruggedized jacket supports common cable stapling methods, difficult installation routes, tight cable bends and service loops. 

ECO Series™ Ruggedized Fiber is available in both standard and custom configurations using premium Corning® ClearCurve™ and SMF-28™ optical fiber. Standard configurations include:
