Breakout Assemblies

Description

Breakout style assemblies are easy to install and simple to terminate without the need for fan-out kits. The indoor/outdoor version of this cable is durable and OFNR rated. While it can be used indoors, it also has a -40°C to 85°C operating temperature range and the benefits of fungus, water and UV protection making it perfect for outdoor applications. The indoor/outdoor versions come standard with 2.5 mm sub units. The indoor only cable is standard with 2 mm sub units.

Consider using indoor/outdoor versions for use in DLC cabinets or OSP electronic cabinets as a “tip” cable. The blunt end will be spliced in a splice vault and the other end will be plugged into the electronics inside the cabinet.

The 2 mm indoor version are ideal for use in cross-connect solutions. One end is loaded into the rear of a patch panel and the other end can be staggered to match any active gear blade.
