Amber Provides the Clear Solution for Fibre Optic Cables
Cleerline Technology Group, the makers of the Planet Waves CI range of cables and solderless connectors, has launched a new range of affordable, easy to install Fibre Optic Cables for the custom installation sector. Branded Cleerline, and available in Europe through distribution leaders, Amber International, the ground-breaking Non Strip Fibre (NSF) is a fast and safe alternative for custom installers that simplifies and improves the fibre termination process.
Supplied in both single and multimode duplex options, Cleerline’s efficient cables incorporate an extra patent pending coating around the fibre without the need for any adhesives to guarantee a polish-free, "two-minutes-and-under" time-saving solution. Unlike all other types of fibre cables, the NSF’s proprietary polymer coating integration removes the need for stripping the acrylate "buffer" 250um coating. This allows the installer to quickly terminate mechanical splice style connections. It also eliminates the risk of glass scarring or imperfections caused by stripping when terminating either mechanical or epoxy style connectors.
"These new Cleerline NSF cables revolutionise cable installation for the CI market," says Mark van Zon, international sales manager at Amber International. "Fibre can now be used without expensive equipment or specialist skills. NSF cables are also great value for money, and supplied in a choice of lengths which make them very versatile, whatever the application."
With the single-mode reaching up to 12km, and the multi-mode up to an impressive 500km, the NSF fibre optic cable is ideal for use within any size home as well as larger commercial applications such as offices, gyms, schools and museums.
Compatible with all common market connector systems for the standard 50/125 multi-mode and 9/125 single-mode fibres, the Cleerline NSF not only supports all broadband applications, but also complies with even the most stringent of industry standards. Cleerline’s own hinge patented AJW Connector ensures easy fibre insertion as well as providing the best resistance for both push and pull strain relief, when terminating the 3mm jacketed fibre.
"We are receiving incredible feedback on the simplification of fibre termination," says Rick Sant of Cleerline. "With Cleerline being easier to use than CAT5, we expect that we will begin to see fibre become the main cable used within residential and commercial environments."
With a headquarters in Veen, The Netherlands, Amber International is a separate trading entity that manages the international sales, marketing and technical support for a range of respected CI brands.
Based in Epsom, Surrey and with more than 75 years in business, AWE is the leading UK distributor to the custom installation trade for a wide range of high quality brands.
