OM3 Armored Duplex LC – LC fiber optic patch cables 3m 3.0mm LSZH high tensile strength ,  rodent-resistant

Armored fiber optic Patch cordis assembled by a cable with soft helical stainless steel tape over a buffered tight cable and standard connector. Its rugged shell with steel and Kevlar is stronger than common fiber optic cable. Those products could protect the fiber bite by mouse and ant and has a higher rated range of operating temperature. Although this cable contains metal, it is still light weight and flexible with about an 8 inch bend radius. They can be bending randomly without being broken.

It could be used as cooper patch cable. The apply place are in the floor corner. Armored fiber optic patch cable is specifically designed for customer premises, central offices and indoor harsh environments or heavy traffic areas which require extra protection.

Benefits of Armoured Fiber Patch Cable

OM3 Armored LC-LC.jpg

Common fiber optic cable is fragile, which needs to be protected, especially when in harsh applications where cables could be compromised by rodents, constant wear and tear or weather damage. Armored fiber patch cable retains all the features of standard fiber cable but is much stronger due to its extra layers of armor. With the protection of flexible and durable steel tube, armored fiber patch cable will ensure the excellent operation of your network.


Ideal for harsh installation conditions that require exceptional durability.It is used as interconnection or cross connection in data center. It is aiso used in ceiling, corridor and other harsh environment.


How to Choose The Right Fiber Optic Cable Type?

PS:The difference of OM4 and OM3 fiber mode as the following
1. OM4 was developed specifically for VSCEL laser transmission and allows 10 Gig / second link distances of up to 550 Meters (compared to 300M with OM3).
2. The effective modal bandwidth for OM4 is more than double that of OM3.
3. For OM4 patch cable it is 4700 while for OM3 it is 2000
