Fiber Optic Cable

Fiber Optic Cable is one of the fastest growing technologies for A/V and data applications due to the advantages over copper systems and ease of installation. These cables can manage signals individually or simultaneously. Examples include: telecommunication, high bandwidth data, video signaling, long-distance CCTV, communication between fire alarm panels, and much more.

Fiber Optic Cable is ideal for carrying higher bandwidth frequencies and can be used for direct burial or in-conduit installations. The cables essentially send and transmit data across glass threads within the cable and can transmit messages through light waves.

In order to make installation easier, West Penn Wire provides a wide range of cabling, installation kits, assemblies, and cable management solutions.

Key Advantages of Fiber Optic Cable:
  • Superior Bandwidth
  • Pull Tensions of Fiber Optic Cable are much greater than those of most copper cable
    • • 6-Fiber Cable: 300 lbs.
    • • RG6 Coaxial Cable: 55 lbs.
    • • Category 5E Cable: 25 lbs.
  • Less Signal Degradation
  • Long Distance Installation
  • Easy Installation – Lightweight and Easily Terminated
  • Greater Security (no EMI/RFI)
  • Energy Efficient (Light waves transmitted through glass or plastic threads (fibers) use much less energy than data signals sent through metal conductors.)
  • Easier to Make System Upgrades
