Belden released its OptiTuff Mini Pre-Terminated Fiber Trunks. As a cost-effective, ruggedized replacement option for traditional metal armored and non-armored fiber pre-terminated products, OptiTuff will protect and organize cables — no grounding or conduit required — in data center, enterprise LAN, hospitality, gaming, and casino environments.

Fewer cable layers plus the elimination of metal armor results in a lightweight assembly with lots of flexibility, a small diameter, and small bend radius for fast and easy cable preparation, installation, and pulling.  

“OptiTuff Mini Pre-Terminated Fiber Trunks build on installers’ demand for cost-effective, lighter-weight, smaller-diameter fiber cables with mechanical properties similar to metal armored products,” said Carlos Matos, product manager at Belden. “This distinctive set of characteristics makes these assemblies an optimal solution for projects that require easy-to-install fiber, including small spaces, raceways, and environments with lots of tight and challenging turns — without having to worry about cable preparation or termination.”
