TE introduces hybrid fiber/power cable system

Monday 10 February 2014 | 16:51 CET | News

TE Connectivity has introduced a powered fiber cable system combines power and optical fiber communications into one system. The system incorporates the power supply, a hybrid cable and a remote powering unit that corrects for DC line loss to eliminate the need for electrical design calculations.

TE estimates that this new system can reduce up-front planning and engineering time for many small cell deployments by 50 percent or more. The system is designed for low power DC transmission (NEC Class II) eliminating the need for highly-skilled electricians. Remote powering units can be factory terminated onto the hybrid cable with exactly the correct connectors for a given small cell. To place a small cell exactly where it is needed, the customer plugs in the connector, mounts the remote powering unit, and installs the cable back to the power supply located up to 1km away. The system is designed to act as a ‘long extension cord’.
