Tailor-made packaging of fibre optic cables

Tailor-made packaging of fibre optic cables

As a consequence of the increased significance of data transmission using fibre-optic cable technology in structured cabling, Metz Connect produces and sells pre-configured installation cables (PCIC) with universal cables as well as with mini-breakout cables. 

These PCICs are fibre optic cables equipped at one or both ends with connectors, all manufactured to the most stringent of quality standards in the manual and individual production facilities of Metz Connect. 

These individually configured fibre optic cables are configured under the OpDAT brand to customer specifications which defined length of cable, connector combination (for example LC, SC and ST) and number of fibres. The OpDAT PCIC universal cable with between 4 and 48 fibres is suitable for demanding mechanical applications both inside and outside. 

PCIC universal cables are the perfect complement to OpDAT patch fields (types PF, PA, fix or slide). They facilitate the quick and easy point-to-point connection of passive and active network components. This substantially reduces the installation time and costs of an installation when compared against splices and pigtails or cabling with individual lines.

OpDAT PCIC mini-breakout cables with 4, 12 and 24 fibres are also suitable for use indoors as well as outdoors and are also used in combination with OpDAT patch fields as well as for connection to OpDAT sockets. OpDAT PCIC mini-breakout cables are used in building backbone (floor dividers), ‘fibre-to-the-desk cabling or for the cabling of computer centres.

Both cable variants are used with fanout protection and, where necessary, also with pull-in aids for pulling fibre optic cables through cable ducts or cable shafts.
