The new OCC products designed to meet performance demands of the oil & gas industry include:

• Ultra-Fox and Ultra Fox Plus Cables: Ultra-Fox family of cables feature 100 kpsi proof-tested fiber, combined with a primary buffer of UV-cured acrylate material and a secondary elastomeric buffer to 900 micron diameter. Ultra-Fox specifications meet a variety of installation requirements, from increased bend tolerance to super crush and impact resistance.

• Interlocked Armored Cables: Fluoropolymer injected plenum interlocked armor fiber optic cables offer optimal protection from chemical penetration and mechanical damage.

• Core-Locked Cable Jackets: Extruded under high pressure directly over the cable’s core, Core-Locked cable jackets contain 25 percent more material for greater protection and stability. Helical cusped ridge interlock with the subcables, preventing slippage or axial movement during long-run installations.

• A wide variety of simplex and multi-channel fiber optic connectors and termini designed and fabricated for applications in harsh and rugged environments.

• Modular deployable solutions intended to meet the unique requirements of installing fiber optic cable with a variety of seamless integration options for quick and easy utilization.
