METZ CONNECT's portfolio of fibre-optic cable (FO) products has now being further extended with prepackaged fibre-optic installation cables. As a consequence of the increased significance of data transmission using fibre-optic cable technology in structured cabling, METZ CONNECT produces and sells pre-configured installation cables (PCIC) with universal cables as well as with mini-breakout cables.
These PCICs are FO cables equipped at one or both ends with connectors, all manufactured to the most stringent quality standards in the manual and individual production facilities of METZ CONNECT. These individually configured FO cables are configured under the OpDAT brand to customer specifications which defined length of cable, connector combination (e.g. LC, SC and ST) and number of fibres.
The OpDAT PCIC universal cable with between 4 and 48 fibers is suitable for demanding mechanical applications both inside and outside, e.g. for the cabling of buildings, the cabling of campuses (external cabling), the cabling inside DATA Centers and the cabling of industrial areas. PCIC universal cables are the perfect complement to OpDAT patch fields.
They facilitate the quick and easy point-to-point connection of passive and active network components. This substantially reduces the installation time and costs of an installation when compared against splicing and pigtails or cabling with individual lines. OpDAT PCIC mini-breakout cables with 4, 12 and 24 fibers are also suitable for use indoors as well as outdoors and are also used in combination with OpDAT patch fields as well as for connection to OpDAT sockets.
OpDAT PCIC mini-breakout cables are used in building backbone (floor dividers), Fiber-To-The-Desk cabling or for the cabling of DATA Centers. Both cable variants are used with fanout protection and, where necessary, also with pull-in aids for pulling fiber-optic cables through cable ducts or cable shafts.
OpDAT PCICs can be configured individually using the cable configurator available at www.metz-connect.com. The website also presents the current METZ CONNECT range of fiber-optic cables in an easy to follow format.
