Armoured Fibre Patch Leads
Armoured fibre patch leads are a robust alternative to standard or ruggedised flat twin cables for harsh environments. Available in duplex armoured ZIP for internal use or round armoured external/internal versions. Both types are high impact crush resistant with a steel armour flexible tube and aramid yarn strength members providing added protection over and above standard or ruggedised patch leads whilst remaining compact and flexible.
Manufactured and tested in a controlled factory environment. Low loss ceramic ferrule LC, SC, ST, FC, E2000 and APC connectors with strain relief boots. Transmit and Receive legs are identified by a ring cable marker or by markings on the duplex clip.
