Indoor Multimode Plenum Fiber Optic Cables
Indoor Multimode Plenum Fiber Optic Cable is either 62.5/125 or 50/125 fiber core construction. Single Mode and Multimode are the two basic types of fiber optic cable available in the marketplace today. Multimode uses a much thicker fiber core than Single Mode, which has a much higher bandwidth. With Indoor Multimode Plenum Fiber Cables, the 50uM Fiber Optic Cable features a smaller fiber core and Multi mode Fiber 62.5 has a large fiber core diameter. Both the 50-micron Indoor Multimode Plenum Fiber and the 62.5 Indoor Multimode Plenum Fiber come with similar glass cladding that measure 125 microns in diameter.
Multimode Plenum Fiber Optic Cable core size allows more multiple modes of light to propagate. With this core size, the number of light reflections that is created as the light passes through the core increases and creates the ability for more data to pass through at a given time. The high dispersion and attenuation rates experienced with Multimode Plenum Fiber Cable causes the quality of the signal to be reduced over long distances.
Some of the biggest advantages of using Multimode Plenum Fiber Optic Cable is that it has the ability to withstand continuous handling and is tailor made for projects where routing is difficult.
Multimode 50/125 fiber optic cable, is also known as 50-micron, 50μm, 50uM or 50/125. 62.5/125 fiber optic cable, is also known as 62.5-micron or 62.5/125 and can be used for fiber installation in the same manner. Multimode has four classifications, Multi mode Fiber 62.5 micron is referred to as OM1, multimode fiber 50-micron is classified as Multimode 50 Micron OM2. Multimode 50-Micron OM3 and Multi-Mode 50-Micron OM4 are both Laser Optimized and often referred to as 10-Gig.
Indoor Multimode Plenum Fiber Cables are available also with an Indoor Interlocking Armored jacket, otherwise known as ILA. Interlocking armored fiber cables, ILA, are commonly installed where users require ruggedness and require the usage of a pulling capability.
Depending upon the specific requirements of the project, Multimode Plenum Fiber Optic Cables are manufactured as a Simplex fiber cable, Duplex fiber cable, Zipcord fiber cable, or multi fiber cable. Multimode Plenum Fiber can be constructed as a distribution style fiber optic cable, breakout fiber cable or ribbon fiber cable. It may also be a tight buffered fiber cable or a loose tube fiber cable. Ribbon fiber optic cables and Loose Tube fiber optic cables, are also referred to as LT cables.
Indoor Multimode Plenum Fiber Optic Cables can also be constructed as unitized fiber cables. This is where the fibers are sub-grouped or sub-unitized into standard distribution fiber cables. These sub-unitized or sub-grouped fiber optic cables refer to multi-fiber cables within an individual 900μm jacket for ease in termination. These buffered fibers are typically grouped into 6-fiber or 12-fiber jacketed subunits which makes it easier for installation and identification.
Multimode Plenum Fiber Optic Cables are also commonly used for the manufacturing of multi-mode fiber jumpers, Multimode fiber patch cables, Multimode fiber pigtails and utilize all of the common fiber connectors such as LC, SC, ST, etc.
Both Multimode Plenum Fiber cable 50/125 and Multimode Plenum Fiber Cable 62.5/125 are utilized in conjunction with fiber optic equipment for transmitting data over short to medium distances, as it offers higher bandwidth at higher speeds, especially utilizing a wavelength of 850nm.
The type of Multimode Plenum Fiber Optic Cable utilized varies based on the application in which they will be installed. Indoor Multimode Plenum Fiber Optic Cables are installed in areas such as under a raised floor or above a drop ceiling. Indoor Multimode Plenum Fiber Cables are typically used in data communications networks, central office installations, LAN cable configurations, voice, audio and video applications. It can also be used for bringing fiber to the desktop, expanding existing networks, security alarm systems and for premise applications like intra-building connections, fiber backbone systems, horizontal applications and all types of new construction installations. The preferred cable type for central office and Local Area Network or LAN installation is the 50-micron Indoor Multimode Plenum Fiber Optic Cable.
