Dubai, United Arab Emirates, October 29, 2012: As part of the LANmark Fibre range, Nexans has introduced Slimflex fibre patch cords, specifically designed for environments with increasing port density, such as the data centre.

Slimflex patchcords support Nexans fibre cable strategy to use the right fibre type in the appropriate place. Cost effective traditional fibres are used in backbone cabling where there is little need to use more expensive bend insensitive fibres. However, the use of GIGAlite Flex bend insensitive fibre inside the Slimflex patch cords, means the cords are able to withstand very tight bends in patch areas without signal degradation, eliminating the risk of loss or application failure.

Slimflex patch cords feature a bend radius of only 7.5mm - as opposed to 40mm for traditional patch cords - dramatically reducing the risk of failure due to accidental over bending where it is most likely to occur.

The cords use a small round cable with a diameter of only 2.6mm, which also reduces space requirements by 30% and is easier to handle as there is no preferential bending as would occur with a twin construction.

The cable uses an advanced flexible sheath material featuring high abrasion resistance, whilst remaining flexible and kink-free but without a memory effect.

Additional features include low loss connectors, with insertion loss of only 0.3dB, and a reduced footprint to improve visibility in densely populated panels.
