Opti-Core gel-free outside plant (OSP)cable features water-swellable tape designed to provide dry water blocking for standards compliance. This dry, loose-tube cable is also designed to simplify cable preparation, eliminate gel cleanup, and reduce termination time. UV-resistant cable sheathing withstands harsh environment elements and meets Telcordia light absorption requirements. An all-dielectric cable for aerial and duct applications features a non-metallic construction that eliminates the need to ground or bond. Armored cable versions have corrugated steel armor designed for superior crush resistance in direct buried applications. Both versions are available insinglemode and multimode, and in standard fiber counts up to 48 as a “stranded tube” design.

The RFA-4028-WiFi kit (pictured) for testing wireless, Wi-Fi and broadband infrastructure, contains a Unidapt RF cable tester with 30 universal adapaters, including male andfemale MMCX, N, reverse polarity TNC and SMA, and TNC, BNC, and SMA connector interfaces. By joining two adapters using a universal center (included), coaxial adapters can be made with any combination of the available interfaces. The RFA-4018-20 coaxial cable tester measures for opens and shorts. An LED display indicates continuity for the shield and center conductor, and checks for shorting across conductor paths. An additional continuity tester is in-cluded for testing Category 5/5e/6 straight-through or crossover RJ-45, UTP, 10Base-T, 100Base-T, 1000Base-T EIA/TIA 568-A/B network cables. The LED display identifies the cable pairs and indicates a correctly wired cable, andwill identify crossed or mis-wired pairs.

These hybrid patch cords are designed to provide a high-density solution for transmitting video signals over twisted-pair network cabling. They combine a 1-pair TERA plug with an integratedF-type or PAL balun, allowing direct support of video equipment, such as CATV receivers, CCTV cameras, DVD players, and televisions via a Category 7A TERA network infrastructure. Usable up to1000 MHz, the patch cords are designed to exceed the 862 MHz frequency ceiling of CATV systems. No additional converters or adapters are required to connect to standard video equipment. The baluns convert unbalanced video signals designed for coaxial cabling at 75 ¿ to balanced 100-¿ impedance signals required for transmission over balanced twisted pair cabling. With a variety of 1-, 2-, and 4-pair hybrid TERA-to-RJ patch cord options, multiple voice and data applications can also be simultaneously supported by a single TERA outlet and cable.
