Fibre4TV has worked in the broadcast industry for over 15 years and in that time we have made custom assemblies for our customers, ensuring they have the correct connector on the correct cable for their job.
Pre-terminated cables are assemblies that use connectors less suited to field use. Such as the ST, SC, LC.
Although the phrase 'pre-term' is mainly used for installed cable within a building, with a protective tube on the connectors to avoid damage during pulling, Fibre4TV have created a fully protected pulling system where the tube has a pulling eye for riggers using the cable on OBs.
Whatever connector and whatever application, Fibre4TV can supply a custom cable straight to site fully protected and ready for use.
Using our 2 and 4 core tactical cable we can break out cores to the individual connectors and fit a pulling tube. This protects the connectors and can be used as the pulling system when rigging the cable.
This is an example of a TAC2 single mode fibre cable being broken out to duplex LCs and fitted in a tough, hose pulling tube with rope eye. It has a 50cm 3mm breakout and a 60cm pulling tube.
This customer had some camera equipment that required 2 singlemode fibre cores terminated with duplex LC.
They wanted a field deployable outer-end of the cable and a LC duplex barrel mounted in the hub of the drum.
For this we used our tough hosing and a 50cm 3mm break-out to 2x LCs for the remote/outer end and terminated the hub end to 2x LC and mounted them in a Neutrik DUO chassis connector. They could then use 2/3m duplex singlemode patch leads to patch to their equipment.
