Multimode (OM1, OM2, OM3, OM4, OM5) and Single Mode (OS1, OS2) Fiber

What are OM and OS type fiber optic cables? In ANSI/TIA-568.3-D, the TIA adopted the nomenclature for fiber found in the international standard ISO/IEC 11801. The multimode fiber is prefixed with “OM” and the singlemode mode “OS”. The new designation in ANSI/TIA-568.3-D should alleviate some of the confusion associated with application support distance issues. Each […]

Kable światłowodowe

Światłowód to falowód służący do przesyłania promieniowania świetlnego. Jest w formie włókien dielektrycznych – najczęściej szklanych, z otuliną z tworzywa sztucznego, charakteryzującego się mniejszym współczynnikiem załamania światła niż wartość tego współczynnika dla szkła. Promień światła rozchodzi się w światłowodzie po drodze będącej łamaną tzn. ulegając kolejnym odbiciom (w przypadku światłowodu z włókien są, to odbicia […]

What you should know about Fiber Optic Cable Jacket Material

The cable jacket provides the first line of defense against the surrounding environment. It resists water entry while remaining inert to gases and liquids that the cable may be exposed to during its service life. It provides a smooth, low friction surface for cable placement. The jacket must be made of a material that will […]

What you should know about ADSS Cable

ADSS cables. All-Dielectric Self Supporting cables. The All-Dielectric Self Supporting (ADSS) cable is a completely non-metallic structure in which the tensile load bearing elements are integral within the circular design of the cable - usually in the form of aramid yarns or stranded glass reinfroced plastic rods. The structure of ADSS Cable Typically a loose [...]
