OptiTuff® is an advanced, ruggedized thermoplastic material, used as a cost-effective, top-quality armoring alternative to traditional metal armoring for fiber cable. This all-dielectric armor provides superior durability and crush resistance, allowing cables to be more flexible and easier to handle and install than metal armored cable—with no grounding or conduit required.
Belden’s OptiTuff Mini Fiber Cable and Pre-Terminated Trunks combine the durability of metal armored solutions with the performance and installation ease of non-armored solutions. They provide cost effective, ruggedized options to replace traditional metal armored and non-armored fiber products in FTTx, POL/PON and raised-floor applications – with no grounding or conduit required.
