Opti-Core® IndustrialNet™ Polymer Coated Fiber (PCF) Cables Opti-Core® IndustrialNet™ Polymer Coated Fiber (PCF) Cables are designed
with technicians in mind, and are ideal for installation in harsh,
industrial environments. Large diameter, high strength and highly
durable graded-index, PCF Cables are suitable for applications that
demand high mechanical integrity and reliability. They are easy to
prepare and terminate using the LC Connector and PCF Termination Kit.
Training takes minutes so it’s suitable for technicians lacking
experience with fiber optic cables.
Making Bonding Easier One of the most essential steps in designing a data center’s bonding and
grounding plan is assuring that bonding remains continuous, from
equipment to racks and all the way back to the electrical panel. (These
same requirements must be met in telecommunications equipment
installations, per the Telecommunications Industry Association’s
TIA-607-B standard.) This can require careful attention to all points
where a connection might be overlooked, or come loose over time.
Data Center Grounding and Bonding is All in the Details Grounding an electrical system is critical in any facility to protect
both people and property against lightning strikes and other dangerous
events. Data centers, though, also have operational concerns that make
grounding designs critical to their performance. In addition to
the catastrophic damage a sudden surge can cause, lower-level events can
create electrical noise resulting in faulty data signals and dropped
data packets (“packets” are the chunks of data transmitted over a
