A range of fibre-optic cables manufactured in the
UK to the highest quality standards is available from the AMP NETCONNECT
Business Unit of Tyco Electronics.

The products are produced at the Tyco Electronics ISO 9001 accredited plant
at Bodelwyddan in North Wales where Tyco Electronics has invested in new
manufacturing facilities to enhance an operation that has been in place
since the 1970s. The cables undergo extensive type approval to the IEC
60794 (EN187 000) and IEC 60793 (EN 188 000) specifications. The fibre used
in the cables includes 50/125 µm and 62.5/125 µm multimode and 9/125 µm
singlemode types, and meets the requirements of the ISO 11801 and TIA/EIA B

The range of products available includes office distribution cables designed
to offer flexibility, strength and compact construction for indoor or
outdoor use. Available with up to 24 fibres in unstranded form or from 24 to
48 fibres in stranded form, these cables use all-dielectric construction
with colour-coded fibres or multifibre sub-units. They are reinforced by
aramid yarn or oversheathed with universal LSZH material to meet IEC fire
performance requirements.

Also available are universal loose tube cables with a 6.4 mm diameter tube
containing up to 16 fibres or a 7.5 mm tube containing up to 24 fibres. All
the individually coloured primary coated 250 µm fibres are contained within
a single gel-filled polymeric loose tube, which is then strengthened with
E-glass members for rodent resistance and oversheathed with Universal LSZH
for internal or external applications.

Other products in the Tyco Electronics range include simplex and zip twin,
full breakout, multitube up to 288 fibres and armoured cables. A range of
chemically resistant sheathing materials is also available as well as UL
listed cables for North America.
