Tight Buffered Fibre Cable has arrived at RFI

rfi_dz_fibre_cable

Offering the durability you expect from OCC, DZ-series distribution cables provide all of the indispensable elements needed for Indoor and Indoor/Outdoor commercial applications, while providing great value. Manufactured with Indoor/Outdoor grade Flame Retardant PVC for riser applications.

Features

rfi_dz_fibre_cable_feature

Cost Savings

  • 900 µm buffer eliminates the need for costly and time-consuming installation of fanout kits or pigtail splices because connectors terminate directly to the fiber
  • No need to splice outdoor cable to indoor cable at building entrance

PULSE Fibre Fast Connector at RFI

On-site installations, quick & easy

The PULSE Fibre Fast Connector is a pre-polished, pre-assembled connector compatible with standard SC and LC connectors. No epoxy is required as an internal mechanical grip effectively holds the fibre in place and can be installed in about 100 seconds.

Without polishing or adhesives, the PULSE fast connector makes on-site installations quick and easy, diminishing the need for epoxy curing and hand polishing at the work site.
