Title: TWO PIECE ARMORED OPTICAL CABLES
Abstract:
An armored cable includes a core and an armor surrounding the core. The armor includes at least one armor access feature formed in the armor to weaken the armor at the access feature. A jacket surrounds the armor and the jacket includes a primary portion of a first extruded polymeric material and at least one discontinuity of a second extruded polymeric material in the primary portion, the discontinuity extending along a length of the cable, and the first material being different from the second material, wherein the bond between the discontinuity and the primary portion allows the jacket to be separated at the discontinuity to provide access to the core, and the at least one armor access feature and the at least one discontinuity are arranged proximate to each other to allow access to the core.
