New designation code for Datwyler FO cables

Current designations referred to in DIN EN 60794-1-1 Suppl. 1

For years fibre optic cable manufacturers and users were guided by DIN VDE 0888. Unfortunately, however, this failed to incorporate new developments. Thus, for example, the letter "U" for universal cable (indoor and outdoor cable) was not stipulated, nor was the "Q" for achieving longitudinal water tightness using source materials.

Now at last a documented designation code for fibre optic cables is again available with DIN EN 60794-1-1 Supplement 1.

You will find the new designation code as a PDF file below - a more up-to-date version than in our catalogue!
