Safety First: Cleerline SSF™ Fiber Optic Cables Offer Unparalleled Safety in Termination and Application

MISSOULA, MT--(Marketwired - October 06, 2016) - Although increasing bandwidth and distance requirements for connectivity makes installing fiber optic cables the best choice instead of category cable, many integrators still hesitate to use it because learning to terminate fiber safely takes significant training and practice. Until now, it was true that working with the exposed glass of traditional fiber optic cables did pose safety hazards, but thanks to Cleerline SSF™ fiber, installing and terminating fiber is even safer than working with copper cabling.

Cleerline SSF™ cables utilize a patented polymer coating between the cladding and soft peel jacket that eliminates the need to expose the glass core during termination, improving safety in two ways: the polymer coating prevents the glass from puncturing soft tissue, and the simple method of terminating the cable eliminates the hazard of fragments of glass being released into the environment. These improvements not only protect those who handle it during installation, but expands the range of settings in which fiber optic cable can be used.

For instance, advanced surgeries increasingly use tools and imaging equipment that require high bandwidth, making operating rooms ever-more in need of fiber optic connectivity. However, there is no tolerance for even one tiny shard of glass fiber to be released into such a setting during installation; utilizing traditional fiber optic cables in these applications would thus pose a safety risk to patients. Now, with Cleerline SSF™ cables, any OR, clean room, or other setting highly sensitive to contamination can be safely outfitted with the best connectivity technology available.

Additionally, Cleerline SSF™ fiber optic cables are safer to use because the polymer coating also protects the glass core itself from damage or degradation due to exposure to air or elements, meaning the reliability of Cleerline SSF™ for critical applications is greater than other fiber optic or copper category solutions. Installers through end users benefit from greater safety and reliability with Cleerline SSF™.
