Manchester, NH March, 2007- Hitachi Cable Manchester is pleased to introduce its NanoCore™ line of fiber optic cables. The line includes three new constructions of plenum-rated gel-free loose tube fiber optic cables. The three constructions include a 12 to 24 fiber optic strand zip cord, a single jacket construction that can accommodate from 2 to 12 strands and a more robust dual-jacket construction capable of accommodating up to 72 strands. Where more than twelve strands are present, they are separated by a colored binder into 12-strand bundles.

Designed to work with MT, MTP®/MPO and other small form function connectors, the NanoCore™ line of cables offers higher fiber strand counts in smaller diameter cables. With a UL rating of OFNP, these easy to terminate cables can be installed in plenum environments and therefore, virtually anywhere in a building. If you are using conduit or inner duct, the smaller diameter of the cable allows the use of smaller diameter conduit or inner duct, thus saving the owner money.

All cable constructions are available with your choice of optical fiber. 8.3 micron singlemode and 62.5 and 50-micron multimode, including optical fiber for 10 Gigabit Ethernet applications are available. Hitachi Cable uses only Corning optical fiber in all its standard constructions.

"The addition of these products to our existing product line allows us to meet all of the fiber optic cable needs of our customers. These products not only reduce installation costs, they are engineered and constructed with durability and performance in mind" said Steven Kenney, Marketing Manager for Hitachi Cable Manchester.
