New FO core structure for FO FRNC Cable GP (50/125/OM4) 6XV1873-2E

1. Product description

The currently available FO FRNC Cable GP (50/125/OM4) will be replaced by a new, reworked version of this cable under the same article number beginning in calendar year 2022. The hollow cores (50/125/1400) currently used in the cable will be replaced by compact cores (50/125/900). The transmission characteristics of the OM4 fibers remain unchanged. The changeover to the new cores gives the cable a thinner line structure. The diameter of 9.2 mm is thus reduced to 7.2 mm. In addition, the CPR fire class of the halogen-free cable improves from Eca to B2ca s1a d1 a1. In addition, the use of the compact core enables direct mounting of LC connectors and the use of splicing technology .
