B-Series Breakout Field Broadcast Cables


  • Deployable cable that is ideal for harsh environments where deployment and retrieval for reuse are required for temporary broadcast networks


  • Extremely strong, lightweight, rugged, survivable tight-buffered cables designed for broadcast field use and commercial applications
  • Polyurethane jacketed for abrasion, cut, and chemical resistance
  • Core-locked jacket for improved mechanical performance
  • Breakout cable design with indivivual color-coded subcables protecting each optical fiber
  • Crush resistant and resilient, with two separate layers or aramid strength members in the subcables for individual single-fiber connector and termination pin, and overall for termination to multiway connector backshells or other housings
  • Helically stranded cable core for flexibility, survival in difficult pulls, and excellent mechanical protection for the optical fibers
  • Cables have been tested and are in use in field broadcast data communications applications worldwide
  • Can be used outdoors for temporary deployment directly on the ground, in all terrains,including severe environments
  • Suitable for industrial, mining, and petrochemical environments; chemical resistant
  • Round cable design for easy installation and survivability
  • Often used with miltiway military tactical connectors for maximum connector retention (400lbs.)
  • Ideally suited for use with MIL-C-38999 style military connectors; subcables terminate to individual pins, and overall aramid strength member terminates to backshell
  • 2.0mm subcables standard
  • Tactical Polyurethane (C) outer jacket material is standard. Flame-Retardant Tactical (V) and Low-Smoke Zero-Halogen (G) outer jacket materials are available
OCC also offers:
  • Broadcast cables pre-spooled on deployable reels for a ready-to-use product
  • Broadcast cables can be pre-terminated with single fiber or ruggedized multi-channel connectors upon request
