Electricity – Substation Networks
Optical fiber and bandwidth reliability are critical for successful substation management. OFS FTTx Solutions for Utility Energy offers various options for distributing fiber in traditional transmission and distribution networks. Substation solutions include:
- OPTION1™ DT outdoor/indoor cable, jumpers and pigtails
- Wall-mount units, shelves, SlimBox® modules
- Mechanical Splice-On Connector (MSOC)
- Fusion Splice-On Connector (FSOC)
Optical fibers, with their intrinsic EMI/ RFI immunity, are ideal for harsh electrical environments and are used as communication links in protection, monitoring, and control devices.
OFS products are used in electrical substation automation applications. The GiHCS® Industrial Cabling Solution with Crimp & Cleave LC connectors and termination kits provide other distinct advantages in substation automation, enables Ethernet speeds, can offer lightning protection in an all-dielectric design. These fibers are also much lighter than traditional copper cables and enable more secure data connections for electrical substation automation and control.
Competitively priced and designed for minimal environmental impact, our HCS cabling solution allows for reliable connectivity, high bandwidth, and optimal performance in power generation, transmission, and distribution automation processes.
