Industries and Applications

Mass Transit and Transportation Hubs

Trains, commercial aircraft, and ocean-going vessels—from cruise ships to ­submarines—employ specialty optical fiber from OFS. Their transportation hubs use fiber too, in train stations, bus terminals, airports, and control towers. In harsh environments like tunnels and railways, critical performance factors include: wide temperature range, resistence to moisture, chemicals and temperature.  OFS offers cables to meet these needs.

Low Smoke Zero Halogen (LSZH) HCS® Cables

To meet the stringent requirements for indoor use, our LSZH HCS cables combine the ruggedness and crimp & cleave assets of our standard HCS cables with the environmentally-friendly LSZH construction. ST, SMA, and F07 connector styles are all crimp & cleave compatible with these cables offered in 50, 62.5, or 200 µm sizes.


Crimp & Cleave

Low Smoke Zero Halogen cables from OFS are designed for on-site connectorization using OFS crimp & cleave technology.  Using hand-held tools, no epoxy, no curing ovens, and no polishing, crimp & cleave connectors are completed in minutes.  A short Crimp and Cleave Process Video shows termination with an ST style connector. OFS also offers SMA-905, F07 and V-Pin connectors.
