Bend Insensitive Fibers
 
Home / Products / FIBERS & CABLES / Special Fibers / Harsh Environments/ Bend Insensitive Fibers
 
 
Overview

Harsh environment includes applications where space is limited or temperature is low.
In such cases it is important to remember that optical fiber is sensitive to stress, particularly bending.
When small bend radius are necessary or when low temperature increases microbending light loss can be a serious problem.

OFS proposes two families of products with enhanced bend performances:

AllWave® FLEX+ ZWP Single-Mode
Fiber: the first Zero Water Peak (ZWP) fiber that meets and exceeds both ITU-T G.657.A2 and G.652.D specifications.

LaserWave FLEX® Multimode Fiber: a 50µm core bend insensitive fully compatible with conventional multimode fibers

   
 
 

Description

AllWave FLEX+ ZWP Fiber maintains very low bending loss across the full spectrum of wavelengths from 1260 to 1625 nm, while ensuring long-term fiber strength and reliability.
It can be coiled into a 7.5mm radius loop with <0.5 dB incurred loss at 1550nm and <1.0 dB incurred loss at 1625nm.

LaserWave FLEX Fiber offers extremely low bending loss at both the 850 and 1300 nm operating windows, while maintaining excellent long term fiber strength and reliability.
The fiber can be installed in loops as small as 7.5 mm radius with less than 0.2 dB bending loss at 850nm and 0.5 dB at 1300nm.

 
 
 

Applications

AllWave FLEX and LaserWave FLEX Fibers provides outstanding bend performance and design freedom for fiber management systems in:
• FTTx
• Low temperature applications
• High power applications
• Small closures
• Any application with transmission speeds of 40 Gb/s and beyond
