62.5 µm HCS® Fiber and Crimp and Cleave Termination System
6 2.5 µm HCS® Fiber and Crimp and Cleave Termination System Our HCS optical fiber family now includes the popular 62.5 µm (core) size with HCS (Hard Clad Silica) fiber coating. The OFS fiber, cable and connector system bring a new level of designed-in durability and flexibility in termination to the industrial market for 62.5 µm products. This design combines the ruggedness of 62.5/200 µm (core/cladding) fiber with the ease of connectorization possible with OFS’ crimp and cleave technology. The proprietary HCS optical fiber coating makes crimp and cleave termination possible by enabling connectors to be installed directly onto the coating. The 230 µm HCS coating remains on the fiber and provides a protective barrier for long life. The 62.5 µm HCS fiber is available cabled and pre-terminated from the factory or can be field terminated with ST® and SMA connectors quickly, reliably and cost-effectively, with minimal training. The fiber is rated to 125°C operating temperature, with high proof test level, and superior resistance to moisture for harsh industrial environments, as well as a bandwidth of >200 MHz-km at 850 nm. For installation of fiber optic cable in enclosed or sealed locations, low smoke zero halogen cables based on 62.5 HCS fiber are also available in simplex or zipcord constructions. Typical Applications • • • • • • Utility control rooms Factory automation High-bandwidth communications in industrial environments Indoor and outdoor industrial manufacturing Installation environments with high pull forces. Difficult-to-access locations such as wind turbines Why Switch to Crimp & Cleave? If you’re already using the 62.5 µm size in your application, OFS’ 62.5 µm HCS fibers will plug right in with your existing system. The process uses proprietary hand crimp and cleaving tools instead of more complex epoxy/polish methods and produces a high-quality endface—in less time, with a completely mechanical process, minimizing the potential of operator error, and yielding more efficient termination than other alternatives. The HCS optical fiber design results in a stronger, more durable fiber with greater resistance to moisture than other 62.5 µm fibers with conventional coating.
