QFCI

QFCI-I/O/RM-JM

Variant:

Fiberoptical cable for the oil- and offshore industry and other harsh environments. The cable has excellent communication properties and is tested to be operative in at least 180 min. at 1,000°C which means that it can maintain vital communication in case of a fire situation. The fibers are protected in jelly filled loose tubes stranded around a central strength member to ensure optimum performance and long life. Each fiber and loose tube is color coded for easy identification during splicing and termination.
