Armored OM3
Cleerline SSF™ Corrugated Armored Steel Distribution OM3 cable consists of a PE overall jacket with 2-12 fibers and water blocking kevlar yarns. The core is protected by a corrugated armored steel tube that offers easy installation and high crush resistance.

Applications include: The cable jacketing is UV resistant and is designed to withstand rugged environments including direct burial, is rodent resistant, and withstands abuse while protecting the encased fibers.

Cleerline SSF™ Corrugated Armored Steel Distribution cable provides superior strength and cable protection due to its internal corrugated armor steel tube. This provides superior crush resistance. SSF™ Corrugated Armor Steel cable also provides bend performance beyond EIA SP-2840A standard, as well as superior pull. Cleerline fiber is compatible with common connector systems for standard 50/125 multimode and 9/125 single mode fibers.

Features And Benefits:
  • High mechanical strength and superior fatigue & durability
  • Integral coating eliminates stripping, provides glass protection
  • Up to 10,000x the bend longevity of traditional fibers
  • Increased safety factor due to the incredible bend insensitivity
  • Glass fiber remains protected at all times from the elements
  • Simplified termination process designed for ease of use
  • Ultra low Attenuation loss on tight bend radius
  • Exclusive 250um Soft peel jacket identifier

Fiber Termination

Cleerline SSF™ fiber is faster to terminate. This example video shows termination with SC connectors and a 900um fan-out kit. For more information on terminating Cleerline fiber, visit our Resources, linked below.

Cleaving Cleerline fiber may require a Cleaver Height Adjustment. Step-by-step instructions are available, along with many other articles and videos, at the link below.
