Ribbon Breakout Tubing

Ribbon Tubing
  • Introduction

    Opticonx offers two types of ribbon breakout tubing. Opticonx ruggedized breakout tubing (P/N 7080RB-XXX) for 12 fiber ribbons of 250µm buffered fibers are available in 12 different colors. This tubing is used for breaking out bare 12 fiber ribbons to color coded tubing for terminating with MTP/MPO 12 fiber connectors. The tubing is constructed with an inner tube for the inserted fibers, a layer of aramid yarn for strain relief and connector crimping, and an overall color coded PVC jacket.

    A second version (P/N 7280RB-XXX) for breaking out, protection and management of bare 12 fiber ribbons for fusion and mechanical splicing is also offered. It is a single tube construction with no aramid yarn or outer jacket.

    All Opticonx products are made in the USA.
