Cable assemblies for use at high or low temperatures If cables are exposed to high (>105°C) or low (<-15°C) temperatures, caution must be exercised, especially in constantly moving applications. When it comes to operation in remote parts of the world, warm or cold zones, cables with "normal" sheath and insulation materials often cannot meet the requirements. With increasing temperatures, the important plasticizers "evaporate" and the cables quickly become brittle and cracked.
We have already dealt with usage and the different types and quality characteristics of the ACT fibre patch cables in Articles 1 and 2. In this article, we'll look at building a patch cable and what fibers and connectors are used in patch cables. Step 4: How is a fiber optic patch cable structured? A fiber optic patch cable consists of the following elements: The fiber Primary and secondary coating: strengthens the fiber and makes it suitable for installation. Kevlar: The fib
In the previous article, we looked at the use and different types of fiber patch cables. In this article we will deal with the quality characteristics Step 3: What quality features do I need to consider? It is not possible to determine the quality based on the appearance of a cable. But how do you determine the quality of a fiber optic patch cable? There are a number of points that you should at least consider to determine the quality. The Quality Levels The International Ele
Choosing the right fiber patch cable is essential for a stable network. But how do you choose the right patch cable? What do you need to consider? Which fiber optic (LWL) patch cable is suitable for your application? In this and the following articles, we'll show you what you need to know in 5 steps to choose the right cable for your application. Step 1: When do I use Fiber Patch cable? You use fiber patch cables to connect active devices.
Typically, fiber patch cables are u
Grid guide cables with solid conductors These modular grid cables are often used as direct connectors between two boards or for connecting displays, single boards or smaller modules. It is a solder connector for direct soldering into the circuit board. Bar connectors are usually available in a grid (distance between the individual conductors of the rigid conductor cable) 1.00mm, 1.25mm, 2.00mm, 2.50mm, 2.54mm, 5.00mm and 5.08mm. The cable shown here is a modular grid cable wi
Fixed Fiber-Optic cabling
Fixed cabling, also known as installation cabling, is usually delivered on a reel. These cables can be used indoors or outdoors. The external cabling is suitable for housing directly in the floor without mechanical protection. The installation cable is used to protect the glass fibre and is therefore supplied with the following functions:
- Mechanical protection against external influences such as UV radiation, water and rodents
- Strain relief
Specifications of our fiber optic cables from ACT at a glance: Simplex patch cable
Simplex patch cables are usually used for FTTH (Fiber to the Home) and telecommunications.
Simplex fiber optic cable means that the cable consists of only one fiber. Therefore these simplex cables are often used in a system where only one-way data is transmitted. Duplex patch cable
These are the most commonly used cables. Duplex patch cables consist of 2 fibers. These two fibers can be separ
ACT offers a wide range of USB cables and USB adapters (USB 3.1 Generation 1, USB C and USB 2.0). Advantages of USB 3.1: - Supports transfer speeds of up to 10 GB/s
- Compatible with all other USB devices
- With type C a bidirectional power supply can be provided
- Video recording with a resolution of 4K or higher Future: USB 3.2 specifications The 3.2 standard specifies a maximum speed of 20 GB/s when using two tracks over existing Generation 2 USB3.1 cables. You can get
