Cables de fibra óptica RADOX®: Revolución en conectividad industrial
Reliability in extreme environment
The brand RADOX® stands for insulation materials developed by HUBER+SUHNER. They are particularly resistent against thermal, chemical, electrical and mechanical loads. Thanks to a new crosslinking process all those features now are implemented also with fiber optic cables.
RADOX fiber optic cables combine all strengths and are superior to conventional fiber optic cables in regards to most of the features. It is the perfect solution for challenging industrial and safety applications.
The new RADOX fiber optic loose tube cables meet the highest thermal, mechanical and chemical requirements while providing excellent optical transmission characteristics and are unique on the market.
They enable the implementation of new, previously impractical cabling solutions, which can be installed in a short time and without the need for additional aids such as protective tubes.
Design loose tube cable:
1) Up to 24 fibers
2) Loose tube jelly-filled
3) Glass roving as strain relief and rodent protection
4) Cable jacket made of RADOX EM104, diam. 8.5 mm.
Optimized cross-linking process
RADOX are developed insulation materials by HUBER+SUHNER, which are highly resistant to thermal, chemical, electrical and mechanical loads.
These particular material properties are achieved through electron-beam crosslinking, which connects the plastic molecules in a three-dimensional structure.
It has been developed a new production process for crosslinking fiber optic cables that prevents primary electrons reaching and impairing the fiber. This preserves the mechanical properties and service life of the fibers, and RADOX loose tube cables with glass fibers become a reality.
The optical transmission properties meet the specifications in ISO/IEC 11801 and IEC 60794-3-12.
RADOX loose tube cables are superior in many single properties and surely in the combination of all the properties.
- Halogen and metal free (acc. EN 50264-1)
- Highly flexible for easiest installation with small bend radii
- Broad working temperature range (-60 to +85 °C)
- Resistant against temperature peaks (up to +200 °C)
- No deformation, bonding and low shrinkage of cable jacket
- High abrasion resistance
- Good UV and ozon resistance
- Best fluid resistance
- Excellent fire performance (for example circuit integrity during 180 minutes)
- Low toxicity (fulfills prEN 45545)
- Good bend resistance at low temperature
- Long life time in harsh environment.
For harsh environmental conditions
RADOX loose tube cables combine all the strengths of traditional cables and surpass them in many properties – the perfect solution for demanding industrial and safety applications.
The jacket material is halogen free RADOX EM104, which is well-known in the rail market and meets the most stringent requirements of the EN 50264-1 standard, especially in terms of its high resistance to low temperatures, oils and liquids. The glass-armoured RADOX loose tube cables with up to 24 opticalfibers are very flexible and easy to install, even in narrow cable ducts with small bending radii.
For the most demanding applications
Thanks to their excellent resistance RADOX loose tube cables are ideally suited for applications in railways, on oil and gas platforms, on board ships, in tunnels and underground railway stations, or in production and processing plants.
The cable is available as cable system with pre-terminated connectors as well as single cable.
In the event of a fire, it continues to transmit data for at least 180 minutes, as per IEC 60331-25.
Other RADOX cable types are available, such as simplex cables, distribution cables with two to four fibers, which are manufactured and processed to create assemblies or cable systems.
Standard and heavy-duty industrial connectors can be mounted at the cable ends.
RADOX fiber optic cables meet the highest thermal, mechanical and chemical requirements while providing excellent optical transmission characteristics are unique on the market.
They enable the implementation of new, previously impractical cabling solutions that can be installed in a short time and without the need for additional aids such as protective tubes – a fiber optic revolution.
