Micro Armor Fiber™

What is Micro Armor Fiber™?

Micro Armor Fiber™ is a revolutionary U.S.

Patented and an award winning new product that incorporates a tightly wrapped stainless steel coil around the fiber jacket. It is designed to provide the lightest, strongest and most flexible solution on the market today.

U.S. Patent and Press Release

Nov 10, 2015 TiniFiber® by CertiCable was awarded the U.S. Patent for the Armored

Flexible Fiber Optic Cable - 11/11/2015

Farmingdale, NY – Certicable Inc., the parent company to TiniFiber® has announced today that the U.S. Patent office has awarded U.S. Patent No. 9,182,562 B2 for the stainless steel micro armor fiber developed to protect the fragile fiber glass within the cable jacket.

“Our Micro Armor Fiber™ stainless steel concept was conceived back in 2011 and we are pleased that the U.S. Patent Office recognizes the invention as ground breaking and will change the armored fiber optic industry,” stated Christian A. Peterson III, Chief Executive

Officer for TiniFiber’s product line. Peterson continues, “We’re focused on providing bestin-class armored fiber optic solutions to meet the needs of large enterprises, IT, communications, telco, CATV, Pro AV, CEDIA, security and government agencies that are seeking a quality fiber optic cable for both indoor and outdoor usage.”

Barry Skolnick, co-inventor and Chief Operating Officer, states “The TiniFiber’s revolutionary development of Micro Armor Fiber™ addresses both the armor and nonarmor cable markets in a single solution.” Roman Krawczyk, co-inventor and Chief

Engineer further elaborates that, “This is accomplished by the proprietary “Micro Armor

Machinery” designed to tightly wind the stainless steel tubular coil around the fiber strands. This in turn provides the smallest Outer Diameter (OD) of any armored fiber cable on the market as well as the same OD for current non-armored fiber cables.”

The solution offers considerable advantages over the conventional Aluminum Interlocking

Armor (AIA) widely used today. TiniFiber® Micro Armor Fiber™ cable does not increase the size of the outer diameter of the basic fiber optic cable.

TiniFiber® Introduces All-in-One Hybrid Fiber + Power

Micro Armor Fiber™ Cable for Security Camera

Solutions - 04/7/2015

This plenum-rated power in the jacket fiber optic cable is designed for an all-in-one cable solution for security camera connectivity. Using Micro Armor Fiber™ technology, the outer diameter (OD) of this cable is minimized, enabling the most efficient use of space and materials. The cable consists of aramid strands and 12 to 48 multicolored

250μm fibers packaged in a high performance PVC jacket. TiniFiber® can customize the power solution for all projects based on the type of source equipment used, such as mega-pixel cameras, etc.

“TiniFiber® provides market-leading technology that minimizes the OD of the Micro

Armor by deploying a stainless steel, tubular coiling process that adds maximum tensile strength and bend radius with an OD that is similar to conventional fiber optic cable housing. This Micro Armor Fiber™ core cable offers unparalleled bandwidth potential from 1 to 144 strands for both single and multimode usage,” stated Roman Krawczyk,

Chief Technical Officer for TiniFiber’s product line.

Krawczyk continues, “Cost value proposition is something taken very seriously at

TiniFiber®. TiniFiber® will add value to every project as the de facto “best in class”

Micro Armor Fiber™ solution. Any security solution can benefit from the installation of

TiniFiber® into their project. The security industry can have confidence that the system will not fail or be disrupted due to the cable installation.”

Smart Choice Press Release

Smart Choice Communications Works with TiniFiber® to

Provide Superior Voice and Data Services to Clients

Micro Armor Fiber™ Provides Increased Flexibility While Significantly Decreasing Time and Costs for Cabling Projects

Smart Choice Communications is an end-to-end telecommunications consulting and management company that provides a full range of innovative infrastructure design, voice and data solutions, and cabling and wiring services to its growing client roster. The company is currently undergoing rapid expansion into the healthcare and retail industries, and Chief Technology Officer Basil Stepanov is always on the lookout for new products and services to better serve the demanding technology needs of this customer segment.

Stepanov first encountered TiniFiber® while working on an extensive wiring job for a large television producer. “For this project, speed was of the essence,” remarked Stepanov. “When the client is constantly pushing large files under tight deadlines, it’s our job to make sure everything runs smoothly and with no hiccups. TiniFiber® helps us do just that.”

Since that first installation over a year ago, Smart Choice has continually scoped out TiniFiber® for a wide variety of projects and is working towards making Micro Armor Fiber™ the new standard for all cabling jobs going forward. “Micro Armor Fiber™ is tougher than other fiber without a doubt,” says Stepanov. “It provides maximum flexibility and gives us much more versatility, allowing us to work in large buildings and get around bends without worrying about cracking or breaking.”

During some fiber-optic installations there is a need to provide extra protection for the cable due to the installation environment. That environment may be underground or in buildings with congested pathways. Installing an armored fiber-optic cable in these scenarios provides extra protection for the optical fiber and added reliability for the network, lessening the risk of downtime and cable damage due to rodents, construction work, weight of other cables and other factors.

“We’ve done a lot of installs in large stadiums and schools, and inevitably the client always requests changes a year or more later,” says Stepanov.

“When you’re using standard fiber and moving it at an angle, it could potentially break and cost the client tens of thousands of dollars. Bottom line: when fiber breaks in a 100-story building it’s a huge, expensive disaster.”

Working with TiniFiber® has helped Smart Choice save their clients significant time and financial resources. Measuring 65% lighter in weight and

75% smaller in size than popular Aluminum Interlocking Armor (AIA) fiber optic cables, Micro Armor Fiber™ translates into more versatility, lower shipping and installation costs, and decreased manpower hours to complete projects.

“When scoping out new technology, the most important thing we look for is how it can help our clients,”

Stepanov added. “With TiniFiber, it was a no-brainer.”
