Title (EN) OPTICAL FIBER CABLE WITH CRUSH RESISTANT, KINK RESISTANT BUFFER TUBE
(FR) CÂBLE À FIBRE OPTIQUE DOTÉ D'UN TUBE TAMPON RÉSISTANT AU PLIAGE, RÉSISTANT À L'ÉCRASEMENT
Abstract:
(EN) A crush resistant, kink resistant optical cable including crush resistant, kink resistant optical fiber buffer tubes and systems and method for making the same are provided. The buffer tubes include a depression pattern formed along the outer surface of the buffer tube. The depression pattern provides areas of decreased thickness in the buffer tube facilitating flexibility and kink resistance. The system and method relates to laser ablation for forming the depression pattern in the buffer tube.
(FR) La présente invention concerne un câble optique résistant au pliage, résistant à l'écrasement comprenant des tubes tampon de fibre optique résistant au pliage, résistant à l'écrasement et des systèmes et un procédé permettant de les fabriquer. Les tubes tampons comprennent un modèle de dépression formé le long de la surface extérieure du tube tampon. Le modèle de dépression fournit des zones d'épaisseur réduite dans le tube tampon facilitant la flexibilité et la résistance au pliage. Le système et le procédé concernent l'ablation laser permettant de former le modèle de dépression dans le tube tampon.
