Total Cable unveils Uniboot fiber patch cable

April 13, 2009--Total Cable Solutions' Uniboot fiber-optic patch cable places both simplex fibers into one jacket while terminating into a duplex LC or SC connector. While typical fiber-optic cables use a zip-cord approach, which means that both fibers are jacketed separately for a total typical jacket size of 6 mm, the Uniboot reduces the entire width of the cables to 3 mm.

April 13, 2009--Total Cable Solutions' Uniboot fiber-optic patch cable places both simplex fibers into one jacket while terminating into a duplex LC or SC connector. While typical fiber-optic cables use a zip-cord approach, which means that both fibers are jacketed separately for a total typical jacket size of 6 mm, the Uniboot reduces the entire width of the cables to 3 mm.

"The new Uniboot cables offer improved airflow and visibility of equipment in today's high density networks.; this has definitely had a positive impact," says Joe Gillaspy, owner of test, analysis, and connectivity solutions provider Gillaspy Associates (www.gillaspysales.com). "Customers are telling us that they like the unique serial number, part number, and length that are labeled on both ends of the cable for easy identification. This also helps cut installation time in half for most customers."

The Uniboot cables offer LC and SC termination, and feature plenum-, riser-, and LSZH-rated jacket materials. Fiber types include laser-optimized 10G OM3, OM2 in 50/125-µm and 62.5/125-µm multimode, and singlemode.

Available from distributors, Uniboot pricing begins at $26.20.
