Unlike standard fiber-optic cables, these tight-buffered cables are engineered to withstand harsh warehouse environments. Heavy freight handling, temperature changes, and electromagnetic interference are just a few of the hazards these cables are built to withstand.
With a high strength-to-weight ratio and a helically stranded core for greater mechanical protection, OCC's multimode, fiber-optic distribution riser cables are UL Listed in accordance with NEC section 770.179(b) for use in vertical runs in building riser shafts or from floor to floor. These cables can withstand operating temperatures as low as -40° C (for refrigerated warehouses) and as high as +85° C, along with a crush resistance up to 1,800 N/cm.
As the operation's bandwidth needs increase, the 10-gigabit riser cables will make it easy for plant managers to integrate future generations of sophisticated equipment and technologies such as video and still imaging for functions like order and shipment verification.
