Pre-terminated Fibre Cabling
for External Use

PTX 200 Series

Typical Applications of the PTX 200 Series

About the PTX 200 Series

The PTX 200 Series offers customers a pre-terminated end to end external fibre network. Multiple buildings can be easily connected with our range of factory terminated cables and wide range of fibre management products.

All products are supplied with protective pulling tubes, longer lengths are supplied on reels and all products are factory terminated using a multistage polishing process to ensure consistent high performance.

Campus upgrades or adding new buildings

Campus area networking can be very simply in its topology or increasingly complex and can be designed around a wide variety of applications and requirements that range from a single “Backbone” link between buildings to a radial complex campus wide network.

Extending or adding a new node onto an existing network can cover both external and internal network infrastructures.

Industrial Fibre Cabling

Fibre optic cables used with or without ducting. Depending on the application requirements different crush resistant cables and different maximum tension options are available.

Military Tactical Cable ♦ Steel Wire Armoured

 Corrugated Steel Tape ♦ Standard Loose Tube Cable

CCTV Networks

Fibre optic cables use in CCTV networks is gaining speed and momentum partly due to the reduced cost of installing and maintaining a fibre optic network over a standard copper one, however when we looking into it, the costs are only the starting point to consider.

Longer Distances ♦ Multiple Cameras On a Single Line Feed

Better Image Quality ♦ Increased Data & Security

PTX 200 Series Fibre Cable Options

PTX Loose Tube 4 Core to 24 Core

The standard choice for most external applications. 250um buffered fibres which are fragile are strengthened using 2mm furcation tubing and a rugged breakout unit. These ruggedised patch cord style ends enable easy handling for installation into patch panels or breakout boxes.

PTX Corrugated Steel Tape (CST) Loose Tube, 12 to 24 core

For extra protection, this rodent resistant cable offers a higher crush resistance and tensile strength than standard loose tube cable. Patch cord style ends as above are used to offer a rugged and easily handled product.

PTX Steel Wire Armoured Loose Tube, 12 to 24 core

An alternative to CST cable.

Benefits from using the PTX 200 Series

Lower cost of installation

The speed of installation and the guaranteed performance ensure a lower cost with no re-work required

Improved performance

Connectors are terminated directly onto the fibre cores. There are no splices. The connectors are then polished with machines to give a consistently high UPC finish

High volume and clean install

With a minimal amount of on-site work, large volumes can be installed in short time frames.

Simple, Fast, Tool-less installation

1. Mount the panels into the cabinets

2. Pull the cable into position

3. Connect the pre-terminated fibre

4. Clean connectors. Start patching

Choice of Cable Construction

Loose Tube

Loose tube cable is constructed using a water blocking gel that makes it an ideal choice for installing in areas where water ingress and flooding may be possible such as ducting. Our loose tube pre-terminated solutions can come in a variety of terminated options to meet your project requirements.

250um fibres are oversheathed with 2mm “patch cord” style tubing to give a ruggedised / easy handling solution.

loose tube 24 core fibre cable
Corrugated Steel Tape

More robust than a standard loose tube cable this cable construction has the same water blocking properties but also a reinforced steel tape inner shield which gives makes the cable rodent resistant. The cables are available in 4 to 24 core and in all fibre grades (OM1, OM2, OM3, OM4 and Singlemode (OS2)).

The inner fibres are only 250um and so every fibre has a 2mm over sheathing to give strength for handling. This means that the pre-terminated cables can be easily installed either into patch panels or directly into equipment (if required).

Corrugated steel tape loose tube fibre cable
Steel Wire Armoured

More robust than Loose tube but with the same water blocking properties, reinforced jacketing and protection make this cable and ideal choice for area where rodent damage is a possibility.

250um fibres are oversheathed with 2mm “patch cord” style tubing to give a ruggedised / easy handling solution.
