The Microarray Data Center Interconnect Cable from Superior Essex is designed for high performance in a small package. The 12-fiber interconnect has an outside diameter of only 3.0 mm. The 24-fiber duplex contains two, 12-fiber interconnect cables with an overjacket. The cable can then be fusion spliced, connectorized to a high density 12-fiber MTP/MPO mechanical array connector or attached to standard single ferrule mechanical connectors (LC, SC, ST, etc.) via a furcation kit. The loose fibers are surrounded by aramid yarns and a low smoke PVC (LSPVC) plenum or riser-rated jacket. Its small size allows for denser fiber routing than traditional tight buffered cables; its loose tube construction gives it superior performance and installation ease compared to ribbon interconnect cable.
