36 & 48 Cores, COMPACT Indoor Tight Buffer Distribution Cable, LSZH


Compact design version of MT Series with reduced overall diameter for easier installation and space limitation environment.

Aditional Option

  • PVC Sheath
  • PE Sheath for outdoor applications
  • Steel Wire Braidling for armouring protection


  • Tight buffer: Each fibre is coated to 0.9mm with LSZH
  • Strength Member: Aramid yarn
  • Core Wrapping: Polyester tape
  • Outer Sheath: LSZH compliant to IEC 61034, IEC 60754 – 1&2, IEC 60332 -1& 60332 –3- 24
  • Suitable for Indoor Flame Retardant Environment.
  • Up to 40% more compact & lighter than standard indoor types but with lesser tensile load.

Ordering Information
UCFIBREâ„¢ MTC SERIES FO Cable part numbers are made up using the table below. The part number always starts with the letters MTC to denote that it is a UCFIBREâ„¢ MTC SERIES FO Cable. This is followed by 3 numbers which symbolises the core quantity and then 2 letters to denote the fibre type. Example of a UCFIBREâ„¢ MTC SERIES FO Cable part number: MTC048M4 The above example describes an OM4 (50um, Aqua Sheath) UCFIBREâ„¢ MTC SERIES FO Cable, with 48 cores.
