Further information

POF and PCF cables are available for indoor and outdoor applications. A range of cable designs are available to match various requirements. Special requirements for flexibility, oil resistance, UV resistance, zero halogen content, or flame resistance are satisfied by the selection of suitable materials.

For multicore POF and PCF cables, separate buffer tube colors can be used to improve distinguishability. Compared to uniform black buffered fibers with printed identification, this technical solution improves differentiation at a lower cost, and therefore offers the user major advantages for laying and installation.
