Siemon unveils new fibre trunking assemblies
XGLO RazorCore assemblies have a reduced diameter to maximise space savings
Global network infrastructure specialist Siemon, has expanded its line of fibre trunking solutions with XGLO RazorCore assemblies. Siemon's RazorCore cables have a reduced cable outside diameter (OD) for maximum space savings and optimised air flow.
XGLO RazorCore assemblies are available in OM3 and OM4 laser-optimised multimode fibre and in singlemode fibre, and are designed to provide an efficient, cost-effective alternative to individual field-terminated components.
By combining the performance of factory termination with the reduced OD of Siemon's RazorCore fibre, these new assemblies are designed to ensure both superior reliability and space utilisation in data centres, Storage Area Networks (SANs) and Local Area Networks (LANs), while offering up to 75% faster deployment over traditional field termination. Compatible with all Siemon fibre enclosures, the new XGLO RazorCore assemblies feature an optional encapsulated protection sleeve with cable pulling eye to fully protect the fibres during installation.
"Siemon precision cable assemblies are 100% inspected for superior performance and enhance the installation method popular in today's data centres. By expanding our offering with smaller diameter RazorCore assemblies, our customers also obtain an average 50% size reduction compared to traditional assemblies," says Kevin Stronkowsky, fibre optic product manager at Siemon. "This results in less cable tray fill, reduced pathway restrictions and better airflow - all of which support higher densities with improved efficiency and reduced cost."
Warranted for 20 years, XGLO RazorCore fibre assemblies come with 900μm simplex breakout, 2.0mm duplex breakout, simplex and duplex SC or LC connector types, as well as SC-LC hybrid options. The RoHS-compliant assemblies are available in a variety of jacket ratings, including riser, plenum and low-smoke, zero halogen. Available with 12, 24, 36 or 48 fibre counts, custom assemblies are easily created with Siemon's flexible part number scheme to meet specific customer specifications and performance needs. Each XGLO RazorCore assembly is designated for proper connector orientation, coded with a unique identification number and individually packaged with a dual shelf reel to protect connectivity during payout.
