RICHMOND, IN - Belden (NYSE: BDC), a world leader in the development of signal transmission products for the broadcast, enterprise, industrial, building management, and security markets, introduces its MaxiBend Tactical Fiber Optic Cable line. The newly designed cable series features an ultra-rugged construction, and superior flexibility and bend resilience, over a broad range of outdoor temperatures and weather conditions. These characteristics, combined with smaller size and lighter weight than traditional tactical fiber cables, make them ideal for use in outdoor broadcasting applications. The cables are also well-suited for in-the-field digital camera transmissions such as HD-SDI and 1080p/50 or 1080p/60, electronic news gathering (ENG), emergency mobile communications, and military, mining and industrial field operations, where ruggedness, long runs and high bend tolerance are essential.
Belden offers its MaxiBend tactical fiber series in eight (8) standard product codes, in single-mode and multimode constructions, with up to 12 fibers, and a variety of special options designed to meet diverse application requirements. Options include glass type, fiber count and jacket color and material.
Designed to stringent military standards, the tight buffered cables feature an aramid yarn strength member and an exceptionally tough, sunlight-resistant polyurethane outer jacket, making them highly resistant to abrasion, crushing and cut-through.
For installers, Belden MaxiBend Tactical Fiber Optic Cables offer multiple benefits:
• They occupy less space and add less weight to mobile vans and trucks.
• Installation typically requires less time and significantly less effort than with traditional tactical fiber cables.
• Their rugged construction allows repeated deployment and retrieval for reuse at event after event, without compromising high quality, reliable performance.
• They are compatible with all optical fiber connector types.
