Harsh environment cable | NBG Customized Fiber Optic Solutions


Harsh Environmental Cable


This ¼ inch fully metallic cable design is made for extreme harsh environments, were the application requires an ultra-high tensile strength and extreme crush resistance for protecting the optical components inside. Overall four layers of stainless steel combined with accurate placed stranding wires makes it possible to give the design the required flexibility and mechanical strength. Due to the high quality, the outer layer hermetically seals the inner layers and protects them against corrosive ambient. With a wide range of material and fiber combinations, this product is a great solution for optical jobs in many harsh environmental applications.
