So if you’re looking for a reliable way to pull your fiber optic cables, the PEK Series Pulling Eye Kit is a great option.
What is Cable Pulling Eye?
Cable pulling eyes is a fiber optic cable strain relief that consists of tubular shells with rounded nose ends to which an eye can be attached. The open tail ends through which cylindrical cable can be inserted and housed for cable drawing operations through ducts.
A cylindrical tail section accompanies the open tail end of the shell with a diameter that approximates that of the cable. In the tail section of the shell, there is a cylindrical nose section whose outside diameter is reduced. The nose section has a relatively thick shell wall, while the tail section has a relatively thin shell wall. By swagging the shell tail section into gripping engagement with the cable, the shell’s outside diameter is not increased.
What is a Pre-Terminated Fiber Optic Cable?
In particular, this works well with breakout cables with small fiber counts, which protect each connector via jacketed simplex fibers. Since the connectors directly attached to the tight-buffered fibers provided less protection, strain relief fiber optic cable provided more security.
Even so, the total fiber count was limited because fiber optic connectors of the era were so large that bunches inside a pulling boot were bulky and hard to pull.
Benefits of pulling eye kits for pre-terminated fiber optic cable
These are the benefits that you get when you use pulling eye kits for pre-terminated fiber optic cable:
- Easy to Use: With this kit, you can pull pre-terminated fiber optic cable through the conduit easily and quickly. The included instructions are straightforward to follow.
- Saves Time: Multiple fiber optic strain relief cables can be pulled through conduit faster with the kit, which is an excellent time-saver for busy professionals.
- Prevents Damage: Cables can be damaged, kinked, or tangled when pulled without the pull eye kit, which can cause problems later on. With the pull eye kit, you can avoid this damage and ensure a smooth and safe cable pull.
The strain relief fiber optic cable can be pulled smoothly and safely through the conduit without damaging it. By doing this, your cables will be able to function correctly and deliver a high-quality signal.
How does a pulling eye kit protect pre-terminated fiber optic cable?
Pulling eye kits from Opticonx safeguards pre-terminated fiber optic cables during installation in conduits, ducts, or risers. PEK SERIES, which may be used with 2 to 96 fiber cables, saves time and money by permitting the installation of pre-connectorized multi-fiber lines.
The strain relief fiber optic is alleviated directly onto the cable’s outer jacket, while the terminations are housed in a protective sheath. As a result, no tension or strain is passed to the terminations throughout the cable installation procedure. It is available as factory-installed or as a kit for field installation.
