Cable excellence engineered through quality

Armada® QFCI Fibre Optic Cable DNV-GL Certified No: TAE00000JG


A Fire Resistant Fibre Optic Cable suitable for Indoor & outdoor applications. Manufactured according to NEK TS 606:2016, this Armada® QFCI is DNVGL approved making it suitable for Maritime Environments & Offshore Applications. The cable exceeds the requirements of IEC60331-25 with extended testing in excess of 180mins. 

General Construction

The cable contains upto 96 colour coded optical fibres contained in upto 8 colour coded loose tubes, each tube contains no more than 24 fibres. These tubes are filled with a thixotropic gel to prevent the ingress of water and a fire resistant tape is added over each tube for heat and fire protection. These tubes are SZ stranded with the necessary amount of fillers around a metallic central strength member. Fibreglass strength member yarns reinforce the cable core beneath an inner jacket of SHF-1. A layer of galvanized steel wires braid is stranded around the inner jacket and an outer jacket of SHF-1 completes the cable structure.
