Plenum MPO to LC Breakout Cables


MTP Cables with FiberShield

The Plenum MPO-LC breakout cable allows the redistribution of various optical fibers to individual devices without additional networking equipment. OptoSpan Plenum MPO-LC breakout cables reduce the overall cost and setup time for complex high density networking environments, combined with additional protective jacketing or fire-resistant materials this line of fiber optic cables simplifies short range data transmission even in harsh working environments.

Available in standard jacketing with MPO connectors on one end and 8 up to 144 individual LC fibers on the other end, the Plenum MPO-LC breakout cables are able to eliminate the need for more complex fiber patch panels in a relatively short range. Offered in lengths from 1m up to 150m, these fiber breakout cables are the most economical solution for smaller networking environments which may not require complex and expensive equipment.

This series of Plenum fiber breakout cables is best installed in areas which may not be suitable for standard fiber optic cables such as the inner walls or ceilings of a building.  The Plenum material is fire-retardant and allows for less smoke to be produced in the unfortunate case of a fire. In cases which fiber optic cabling need only be installed along outer floors or outside of buildings, standard riser jackets or armored jackets may be a more appropriate solution.

The Plenum MPO to LC breakout cable assemblies are most often used to reduce the amount of additional networking hardware within short distances. Their ability to redistribute multiple fibers from a single source to various devices allows for one cable assembly to eliminate the necessity for expensive networking equipment therefore reducing cost, setup time and complexity of fiber networks.

All listed breakout cable assemblies may be altered as per customer specifications.  Such alterations may include but are not limited to polarity, key orientations, or length of fiber assembly.

Plenum OM4 50/125 Multimode MPO to LC Harness

Plenum multimode OM4 MPO to LC harnesses featuring 50/125 micron core/cladding diameter are designed for fire-retardant cabling requirements for short distances with reduced equipment.  These high performance MPO to LC Plenum rated harnesses are optimized for 40G/100G fiber networks.  OM4 is fully backward compatible with existing OM3 systems, but provides added benefits over OM3 fiber.  See OM4 fiber key advantages.

Plenum OM3 50/125 Multimode MPO to LC Cables

Multimode OM3 fiber Plenum MPO to LC cables with 50/125 micron fiber core provide a superior upgrade to higher speed networking.  These Plenum rated cables carry premium MPO connectors on one end to LC connectors on the other for low-loss networking with fire-retardant insulation for specific low-smoke cabling requirements.
