Furcation Tube

 

Furcation.3

Introduction

Furcation tube is used for protection of optical fiber or tight buffer fiber. Coating considering the easy insertion of fiber core & flexibility for convenience of handling. The Tube is manufactured using Aramid Yarn for Fan Out Tubing, offering two types with Simplex Fan Out Tubing & Duplex Fan Out Tubing, to enhance the Tensile Load and protect the optical fiber. Consisting of two Simplex Sub-units for Duplex Fan Out Tubing enabling the insertion of 0.9mm tight buffers respectively.

Features

  • Accurate inner & outer diameters
  • Easy insertion of optical fiber or tight buffer
  • Use of standard colors (Easy color identification)
  • Coating material: Flame retardant PVC, LSZH, Hytrel & etc. (Certified with UL-OFNR, GOST)
  • Operating Temperature Range : -20~70℃

Applications

  • Connection to Single mode or Multimode optical fiber
  • Connection between equipments
  • Separation of optical fiber & tightbuffer joints
  • Medical devices
