HITRONIC® - Single Mode & Multimode Fiber Optic Cable

The demand for a fast and secure communication network is constantly growing. Fiber optic cables are now an indispensable and irreplaceable communication medium. Our HITRONIC® fiber optic cables transmit large data volumes at unbeatably fast and secure way. They are a versatile range of cables for indoor and outdoor applications and can withstand the harshest environmental conditions.

HITRONIC® fiber optic cables have PE/PA buffer tube or tight-buffered fibers with aramid yarns as strain relief. This compact design makes cables very easy to install and highly flexible. HITRONIC cables with armoring provide excellent protection against high mechanical stress and rodents. Flame retardant and UV-resistance properties make it suitable for indoor and outdoor installations. The fiber optic cables by LAPP are dielectric which means they contain no metal. Hence, there is zero electromagnetic interference which ensures cables provide seamless data transmission.

Application Areas

- Telecommunications and network technology

- Industrial cabling at automation level

- Industrial machinery and plant engineering

- Data transmission under harsh conditions like mining and tunnel construction, oil and gas platforms, wind power plants

Features

- Electromagnetic Insensitivity - The fiber optic cables are unaffected by electromagnetic interference that is common in electrical equipment placed near large machinery and fluorescent lighting or even power lines. The EMI and EMC do not interfere with the transmission and ensure reliable connectivity.

- Electrical isolation of connected devices - Fiber optic cables are used to isolate factory equipment and machines. It is a way of preventing the conductor from being corroded due to a stray charge that originates from dissimilar metals.

- Low attenuation values - With low attenuation values, these fiber optic cables are less prone to any reduction in signal loss. Attenuation is dependent on signal frequency and cables with lower attenuation values provide improved connectivity.

- Lightweight and compact design - Optic cables are much finer and thinner. The lightweight design is suitable to be used in beams and other architectural structures without undermining their durability.

- Large transmission distance - A range of HITRONIC® optic cables support large transmission distances from 650 nm to 1550nm and high bandwidths (Single-mode fibers SM).

- Explosive environments - It refers to an environment where vapours, gases, fumes, and dust can potentially combine and ignite under certain conditions. HITRONIC® optic cables have outer jackets that are flame retardant and halogen-free. The cables are resistant to abrasion, oil, microbes, and hydrolysis.

- High level of interception protection - HITRONIC® optic cables provide a high level of protection against interception or tapping. They have armour and conduits to protect the information they carry.

- Variety of glass optical fibers (GOF), OS2 (Optical single mode Grade 2) SM (9/125), OM1 (62.5/125), OM2/ OM3/ OM4 (50/125) available in armoured (ECCS) and unarmoured versions. (OM-Optical multimode)

- Special application cables with polymer optical fiber (POF) and plastic cladded fiber (PCF)

- We support optical fiber accessories like patch cords, pigtails, and splice boxes for easy installations of optical fiber networks.

HITRONIC® - Single Mode & Multimode Fiber Optic Cable are Classified as Below

 

- Polymer Optical Fiber (POF) Cables

Simplex and duplex buffered P980/1000 fiber cables with PE buffer tube. These cables provide optical data transmission up to 70m and are suitable for fixed installation in control cabinets, cable ducts and pipes with low mechanical stress.Also, available in PUR sheath for PROFINET applications Type B or C.

 

- Polymer Cladded Fibers (PCF) Cables

Simplex and duplex buffered K200/230 fiber with tight-buffered fibers. These cables provide transmission lengths up to 500m. Cables are halogen free, EMC protected and therefore suitable for data transmission in field bus systems such as PROFIBUS, INTERBUS etc.

 

- Glass Optical Fiber (GOF) Cables

Available in variations like, single mode (SM) fiber E9/125 OS2, multimode (MM) fiber G62.5/125 OM1 and G50/125 OM2 to OM4. These cables come with gel filled loose tubes and central GRP strength element. It has reinforced glass yarn strain which makes cable watertight and suitable for direct burial. Special aerial cables are designed to withstand harsh weather condition.

FAQs

  • Q. What is a multimode cable?  

    Multimode fiber optic cables have a metallic core with a large diameter that allows light signals to pass through them. Multimode fiber optic cables come in two core sizes and different varieties. They are comparatively less expensive than single-mode cables and are used over smaller distance runs of upto 400m.
  • Q. What is the difference between single-mode and multimode fiber optic cables?   

    Multimode fiber optic cables have a metallic core with a large diameter that allows light signals to pass through them.Single mode and multimode fiber optic cables both transmit data through light signals. The main difference is that single mode cables have a transmitting core ranging from 8 to 10 microns. On the other hand, multimode cables have a considerably larger core of 50 or 62.5 microns.
  • Q. What does a single-mode fiber do? 

    Both kinds of fiber optic cables are used to transmit data through light signals. But single mode fibers can transmit data over longer distances. They are used in connections encompassing a large area such as college campus or a television network.
  • Q. What is the multimode fiber used for?

    Multimode fiber optic cables transmit data over short distances in a local area network within a building.
  • Q. Which is better single-mode or multimode fiber?   

    It is difficult to answer this question as both types of fibers serve different purposes. Single mode cables are used for larger distances, while multimode fiber optic cables are used for shorter distances. Single mode cables have higher bandwidth and can deliver two times more output when compared to multimode cables.
  • Q. Can I connect multimode fiber to single-mode?

    No, you cannot connect multimode fiber to a single mode fiber. The difference in their core sizes will prevent them from transmitting signals.

  • Q. How far can single-mode fiber go?

    Single mode fiber cables can transmit data over a range of 40km or more without disrupting the quality of signals.

  • Q. What are the 2 types of fiber optic cable?

    There are two types of fiber optic cables called single mode and multimode fiber optic cables. The main difference lies in their core sizes. Single mode cables have a core size ranging from 8 to 10 microns. In comparison, multimode cables have a larger core size of 50, 62.5, 200 microns.

  • Q.  Is single-mode fiber cheaper than multimode?

    Multimode fiber optic cables are the economic alternative as they are cheaper than single mode fiber cables. But they are unable to maintain the signal quality over large distances.
