June 19, 2001 CableLAN Products (www.cablelan.com) announced it is the exclusive distributor of Chromatic Technologies' (www.drakausa.com) fiber-optic cables for communication links, data networks, video broadcasting, and emergency-system repairs in nuclear power plants.
Chromatic makes fiber-optic cables that comply with Nuclear Regulatory Commission guidelines, which take into consideration flame and radiation characteristics.
"Many harsh environments, such as nuclear power plants, are installing fiber-optic cable as a viable option to previous copper cabling," said Jan Pirrong, president of CableLAN. "The renewed interest in nuclear power-plant licensing extensions and fiber-optic as a viable medium is creating many upgrades and additions in existing facilities, as well as in new construction."
CableLAN Products has offices in Norfolk, MA; Warwick, RI; and Albany, NY.
