Why Use a Pre-Terminated Fibre Optic Cable Assembly?

ADI, through Connectix offers a cost effective pre-terminated cabling system called OPAL™ (Optical Pre-Assembled Link) which is completely based around standard networking products.

Using pre-terminated cable assemblies saves labour and allows contractors to add services to a project. As an example, a fiber optic cable system is required, and the integrator does not have the tools and expertise to terminate fiber optic cable in the field. The integrator calls ADI, whose sales engineer reviews the plans and specifications for the project and recommends a solution. Contact our experienced ADI team for help on your next cabling assemblies applications.

Key System Features

Standard internal/external tight buffered distribution cable, supplied in specific lengths for each cable run in an installation and is available in multimode or single mode with fibre counts of 4, 8, 12, 16 or 24.

The cable is factory prepared with a gland on each end which is epoxy bonded onto the Kevlar Strain Relief Yarn in the cable. The secondary coated fibres are terminated with either ST, SC or LC connectors which are fully tested and certified under our quality system. This ensures that the quality of the complete cable assembly is guaranteed before shipping to site.

A specially developed termination protection sleeve is fitted to each end of the cable assembly to protect the connectors during shipping and installation. This sleeve has a small diameter and is flexible, lightweight and extremely rugged. The protection sleeve connects onto the epoxy-bonded cable gland and can withstand the high tensile loads applied when pulling cables through ducts. A pulling eye is incorporated to allow the attachment of a draw cable.

After cable installation, the protection sleeves are removed and the connectors are threaded through the gland hole of any cable management enclosure. A gland nut is used to secure the cable gland in place. Then the connectors are simply connected to the adaptors inside the enclosure to complete the installation.
