Cabling technology for the construction of optical networks

(PresseBox) (Nürnberg, ) new cabling system for the construction of optical networks is extending the product range of the Siemens Industry Automation Division. The fiber optic lucent connector (FO LC) cabling system consists of single-mode and multi-mode cables as well as LCs and supplements the Simatic Net portfolio. The multi-mode cables, consisting of two glass fibers, can span distances of up to four kilometers. Single-mode cables, on the other hand, consist of four fibers, enabling two device connections to be established in one cable. They achieve ranges of up to 26 kilometers. The new cabling system also comprises special duplex connectors for the parallel use of both multi-mode and single-mode cables.

The LC format is characterized by a compact design and is widely used for the plug-in connections of fiber-optic cables (FOC). The LC format is supported, among others, by numerous Scalance components, such as the Industrial Ethernet Switches X308-2M, XR-300 and X-300EEC. The Simatic Net cables feature a robust, industry-standard 900-micrometer core construction.
