Top 7 Considerations for Fiber Optic Cable Installation

For a proper fiber optic cable installation, it is important to obey some rules when installing fiber cables. The following tutorial lists the 7 most important factors to consider. 1. Minimum Bend Radius. Optical fiber cable installation is as simple as, and in many cases much easier than, installing coaxial or UTP cable in the horizontal. The most important factor in optical fiber cable installation is maintaining the cable’s minimum bend radius. Bending the fiber cable tighter than the minimum bend radius may result in increased attenuation and broken fibers. If the elements of the cable are not damaged, when

Firestopping for Copper & Fiber Optic Cabling Systems

What Is Firestopping? As a cable installer, your job involves drilling holes in walls and fire-rated barriers for cable pathways. Smoke and fire spread through the holes that are not resealed. The holes in fire-rated barriers must always be resealed to reestablish the original fire rating of the barrier. Firestopping is the process of installing qualified firestop materials in all penetrations created during the installation of communication cables. The cable installer is responsible for using both approved firestopping methods and approved materials. Why Firestopping? Most people died in building fires die from toxic smoke and gases, not from direct flames.

101 Guidelines for Fiber Optic Cable Installation

Never directly pull on the fiber itself. Fiber optic cables have Kevlar aramid yarn or a fiberglass rod as their strength member. You should pull on the fiber cable strength members only! Never exceed the maximum pulling load rating. On long runs, use proper lubricants and make sure they are compatible with the cable jacket. On really long runs, pull from the middle out to both ends. If possible, use an automated puller with tension control or at least a breakaway pulling eye. Know and observe the maximum recommended load rating of the cable. Never exceed the cable bend radius.
