Riser Rated Breakout Fiber

 

BR Series

Indoor or Outdoor Use - can be installed externally or within dwellings

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

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

2 - 24 Fiber Elements - available in a variety of configurations

OFNR Riser Rated - riser rated UL listed construction for permanent installation applications

The BR series cables are precision optical fiber cables in an indoor and outdoor rated PVC construction for installation within dwellings or exterior environments that require an OFNR listing. For additional strength and streamlined fiber breakouts, each fiber element has an aramid strength member and PVC jacket. 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 B-SMR series is available in two through twenty-four strand versions.
