Draka Fibre Portfolio Upgraded with New Cca and B2ca Stranded Loose Tubes Cables up to 432 Fibres

Categories: Press Release
19 Jun 2020

Using all of Prysmian Group’s innovation, Draka now specify up to 432 fibre B2ca compliant cables as part of its warranted Draka Universal Cabling System.

To further enhance the practicality, the new N-series design is the first gel-filled nonmetallic fiber cable suitable for internal and external applications. Gel filling is the recognised solution for water blocking and the unique gel combined with FireRes LSHFFR sheathing allows these cables to be run straight into a building without the need to reterminate.

The N-series, like all Draka UC fiber cables, uses Prysmian BendBright-XS optical cores. This bend-insensitive fibre now gives 100x better performance in macrobending over a typical standard optical core.

Gerard Pera, Global Fibre Product Manager, explains: “The latest EN60794-1 specification requires that internal/external cables must be water blocked. The Draka N-series is the only cable that combines this requirement with verified B2ca CPR compliance and should be the automatic choice for the end user.”

The comprehensive Draka N-Series portfolio includes internal and external non-metallic gel-filled stranded loose tube cables in units of 6, 8, 12, or 18 with each unit containing 12 or 24 fibres. All cables meet the requirements of ISO 11801-1, EN 50173-1, IEC 60794-1, TIA GR20, ICEA 640 and ICEA 696.

Draka UC products are available through distribution partners: Comms Centre, Comtec, Dunasfern and Precision Cables.
