OFS Launches New InvisiLight® Indoor Living Unit Products

OFS, a manufacturer of fiber optic products, launched two new InvisiLight products for the indoor living unit (ILU) plus PowerGuide 200 SkyLight Cable.

InvisiLight Indoor Living Unit Products
The InvisiLight solution portfolio from OFS is well known globally with a widely installed customer base.

The single and two-fiber InvisiLight ILU Solution is designed for the residential unit and the 4, 8, 12 and 16-fiber count InvisiLight MDU Solution is deployed inside building hallways and risers.

In addition, indoor/outdoor rated InvisiLight Façade Solutions, with 12 and 24-fiber counts respectively, can be installed on building facades when an indoor solution is not possible. This portfolio is well integrated with OFS’ equally diverse SlimBox portfolio for indoor and outdoor installations.

OFS launched two new InvisiLight ILU products, which continue providing the same benefits that InvisiLight is known for: a simple, fast, non-disruptive and almost invisible installation with a unique slack management feature when exact installation path lengths are not known.

One product is a pre-connectorized wall mounted module with a dual layer spool. This module allows up to 40 meters of 900 μm OFS EZ-Bend Cordage to be dispensed on the bottom layer, using the same InvisiLight installation process, and up to 1.5 meters of 3 mm OFS EZ-Bend cordage on the top spool layer.

With this design, this product provides an easy way to connect the module to an indoor ONT. This further simplifies and quickens the current installation as it helps eliminate an optical connection.

In addition, with one less connector, attenuation loss is also decreased. Additionally, this product can easily be self-installed by an end-subscriber.

InvisiLight EZ-Hide Faceplate
The second product is the InvisiLight EZ-Hide Faceplate that installs flush to the wall, maintaining discreteness while providing a behind-the-wall concept for a safe optical connection.

With this concept the optical installation remains hidden and allows for an OFS EZ-Bend Jumper to be stored inside the 1⁄2-inch deep faceplate. This product is also design-compatible with the dual layer spool.

The EZ-Hide Faceplate with dual layer spool can be installed during new building or home construction, when the indoor wiring phase is being completed.

This product enables quicker FTTx deployment than the current installation of indoor fiber, making the new home construction attractive as it will be fiber ready prior to home ownership.

PowerGuide 200 SkyLight Cable
OFS also launched an All-Dielectric, Self-Supporting (ADSS) aerial loose tube fiber optic cable that offers an excellent, cost-effective option for short aerial cable spans.

Optimized for aerial and duct installation, the compact PowerGuide200 SkyLight Loose Tube Fiber Optic Cable features a small outer cable diameter and round profile that help to minimize environmental loading created by wind and ice.

This capability helps to reduce cable sag and tensile forces on poles while also enabling the use of lighter installation hardware.

The PowerGuide200 SkyLight Cable offers a number of additional benefits that can help ease the deployment process and create potential-cost saving opportunities.

This cable’s small size and bend radius enable easier handling along with fast, one-step installation using simple attachment hardware which can help to save on deployment time and expense.

Furthermore, the PowerGuide200 SkyLight Cable allows installers to increase the distance between splice points and enables the use of smaller drums, which is a major benefit in city deployments where space is at a premium.

Other design benefits include an easily strippable sheath for fast cable preparation, and all-dielectric loose tube construction that eliminates the need for expensive cable shielding or grounding.

The PowerGuide200 SkyLight Cable features OFS AllWave FLEX 200 micron (μm) Bend Optimized Optical Fiber, designed to accommodate tight, low loss bends without risking fiber strength and long-term reliability.

This fiber also requires 30 percent less area than conventional 250 μm coated fiber, which enables smaller diameter cables and a greater number of fibers per buffer tube. The PowerGuide200 SkyLight Cable has 24 fibre/tube modularity.
