QFCU (QFCI MUD)

QFCU (QFCI MUD)

Variant:

Fiberoptical cable for use in vital communication and emergency systems, which needs to be operational during a fire situation (180 min. 1000°C). The fibers are protected in jelly filled loose tubes stranded around a central strength member to ensure high performance and long endurance. Indvidual colours for each fiber. 62.5, 50 and 9 µm fibers. MUD resistant jacket.
