Tactical Breakout Fiber

 

BMT-T Series

Heavy Duty Tactical Construction - designed for use in remote and hostile environments

Single-Mode or Multi-Mode Fiber - 9u SM, 62.5u MM OM1, and 50u MM OM2 or OM3

High Strength Coating and Buffer - greater tensile strength for improved durability

Individual Fiber Jackets - each fiber element is jacketed with an aramid filler for added strength

Polyurethane Jacket - extremely rugged, abrasion resistant and puncture resistant

2, 4, 6, 8 or 12 Fiber Elements - available in a variety of configurations

The BMT-T series are precision optical fiber cables in a heavy-duty tactical construction. Built for use in portable or hostile environments, the BMT-T cables feature a rugged polyurethane outer jacket, individual fiber jackets and aramid filler, an overall aramid strength member, and high strength fiber coatings and buffers. Together these materials deliver significantly improved flex-life, crush resistance and tensile strength when compared to typical permanent installation multi-strand fiber cables. The optical fibers can be specified from 9u single-mode, 62.5u OM1 multi-mode, or 50u OM2 or OM3 multi-mode grade fibers. The BMT-T series is available in two, four, six, eight and twelve strand versions.
