Armored Fiber Optic Cable

West Penn Wire’s selection of Fiber Optics has recently expanded, now featuring Armored Fiber Cable. Fiber Optic Cable continues to be one of the fastest growing technologies for A/V and data applications due to the advantages over copper systems and ease of installation. These cables can manage signals individually or simultaneously. Armored Fiber is ideal for: telecommunication, high bandwidth data, video signaling, long-distance CCTV, communication between fire alarm panels, and much more.

Armored Fiber Cable is ideal for carrying higher bandwidth frequencies and can be used for direct burial installations due to the interlocking aluminum armor surrounding the fiber. This cable can be used within any sun resistant and wet location environment.

In order to make installation easier, West Penn Wire provides a wide range of cabling, installation kits, assemblies, and cable management solutions.

Key Advantages of Fiber Optic Cable:
  • Superior Bandwidth
  • Armored Fiber Plenum – allows for plenum pulls and outside direct burial without a transition
  • Pull Tensions
    • • Fiber Optics up to 400lbs.
  • Less Signal Degradation
  • Long Distance Installation
  • Easy Installation – Lightweight and Easily Terminated
  • Greater Security (no EMI/RFI)
  • Energy Efficient (Light waves transmitted through glass or plastic threads (fibers) use much less energy than data signals sent through metal conductors.)
  • Easier to Make System Upgrades
