XGLO and LightSystem Interlocking Aluminum Armor Indoor Tight Buffer Fiber Cable - North America


Siemon interlocking aluminum armor indoor tight buffer fiber cables are ideal for data centers, campus and building backbones as well as industrial applications. The interlocking armor cable is a robust aluminum armored design that provides higher compression crush strength, rodent resistance and increased security. Siemon interlocking armor fiber cables may be installed as an alternative to traditional fiber cables in plenum inner duct or conduit, providing a less expensive single-pull solution with estimated savings of 25-50% in materials and estimated labor savings up to 60%. Siemon fiber optic cables are offered in LightSystem and XGLO configurations supporting high-speed applications such as Gigabit Ethernet, 10 Gigabit Ethernet, Gigabit ATM and Fiber Channel.

RoHS Compliant


  • 900 µm tight buffer
  • OFCR: Communications Type OFCR Engineering Testing Laboratories (ETL) or Underwriters Laboratories (UL) Type OFCR (Conductive Optical Fiber Riser Cable) and c(ETL or UL) OFC-FT6 75C.
  • OFCP: Communications Type OFCP Engineering Testing Laboratories (ETL) or Underwriters Laboratories (UL) Type OFCP (Conductive Optical Fiber Plenum Cable) and c(ETL or UL) OFC-FT6 75C.
  • Aluminum interlock offers greater than 10 times the crush resistance of a standard fiber cable
  • Provides installation protection from bending and excessive pull tension
  • Significant time and labor reductions versus conduit or inner duct installations
