What is an armored MTP/MPO fiber jumper?
Armored MTP/MPO fiber jumper is a new type of fiber optic jumper, a layer of stainless steel tube is specially designed to protect the optical fiber, it has the advantages and functions of standard fiber jumper, but at the same time has the durability of armor.
The structure of the armored MTP/MPO fiber jumper?
A layer of micro-diameter spiral stainless steel is added to the optical fiber, which not only enhances the pressure resistance, but also ensures the same flexibility as the standard optical fiber jumper and various superior optical properties of the optical fiber itself. Micro-aperture stainless steel acts as the protective layer closest to the fiber to prevent damage caused by mechanical force.
Some armored jumpers also use high-strength PVC as the surface material, which is flame retardant, chemically resistant, tear-resistant, and also increases the softness and elasticity of the armored fiber optic jumper.
The characteristics and application of armored MTP/MPO fiber jumper
Armored MTP/MPO fiber jumper has the characteristics of high strength, tensile strength, compression resistance, anti-rodent, and is not easily damaged by trampling. Armored MTP/MPO fiber jumper can be apply directly outdoor without the use of a protective sheath. The bending degree and diameter of the optical cable are not greatly limited, which greatly saves space and increases the simplicity of construction and deployment. Armored fiber optic cables, while strong, are actually as flexible as standard fiber optic patch cords and can be bent at will without breaking.
Armored MTP/MPO fiber jumper can be used in complex environments such as building wiring, optical connection of equipment in field operation, sensor detection, optical fiber access, and community backbone network wiring. The stainless steel tube can protect the optical fiber jumper from being squeezed and prevent rodents from intruding. Another application of armored MTP/MPO fiber jumper is in data centers, where they can provide flexible interconnection for active devices, passive optical devices, and cross-connects.
