The Microarray Breakout cable from Superior Essex is designed for high performance in a small package. The design consists of 12-fiber 3 mm microarray interconnect cable subunits, each of which contain twelve 250 micron fibers. The aramid yarns inside the subunit allow the subunit to be crimped directly onto an MTP/MPO connector. The 3 mm subunits are stranded around a central strength element that is both flexible and robust enough to pass backbone installation requirements. The stranded subunits are held to the strength element core by binder yarns and/or tapes ensuring excellent temperature performance. Finally, a RoHS-compliant flexible jacket protects the core from the rigors of installation while providing riser or plenum fire protection. The cable is available with TeraFlex single mode, and laser-optimized 50/125 micron 10G/150 (OM2+), 10G/300 (OM3) and 10G/550 (OM4) multimode fiber types.
