OFS, a designer and manufacturer of fiber optic products, is now shipping the AccuFlex Ribbon Interconnect Cable.

It features a round profile as well as a patent-pending core design, which simplifies cable routing and multifiber connector assembly.

According to the company, unlike flat ribbon interconnect cables that have a preferential bend direction that can lead to kinking, differential ribbon lengths and increased attenuation levels, the AccuFlex can be easily dressed into shelves, ducts and raceways without the worry of orientation.

It is currently available with one or two AccuRibbon cable units containing either 6, 8 or 12 colour-coded fibers in a flat matrix ribbon encased in a flame-retardant solid-buffer core.
