Cleerline Technology Group as a company has redefined how optical cable can be installed and terminated. Cleerline glass fibers incorporate a patented polymeric coating that is an integral part of the optical glass fiber. Cleerline fiber optic cables meet—and in most all cases exceed—all requirements for both Multimode and Singlemode fiber optic cabling industry standards. Cleerline fibers are stronger with over 10,000x the bend capability and up to 400x the pull force over standard fiber. Cleerline is safer to work with as it will not penetrate skin or soft tissues, and it is quicker, allowing for terminations that are up to 50% faster compared to other standard glass fibers. Cleerline fiber is compatible with all common connector systems for standard 50/125 Multimode and 9/125 Singlemode fibers. Cleerline fiber is available in today’s most common cabling configurations for optical cables and also in a wide variety of optical patch cords that provide superior fiber connections and greater reliability in all applications.
