Optical Fiber/Optical Cable Routing and Bundling

Optical Fiber/Optical Cable Routing and Bundling

This section uses the optical fiber as an example to describe how to lay out and bundle cables. The optical cable differs from the optical fiber only on the connector. For details about optical cables bundling, refer to this section.

Optical Fiber Routing

  • During hardware installation, cut the corrugated pipe to the desired length and wrap adhesive tape around the sharp ends to protect the optical fiber.
  • Do not forcibly pull or excessively bend optical fibers during routing. There should be no other cables on the optical fibers.
  • If cable trays are installed for a storage device, place all cables connected to the device into the troughs of the cable trays.

Evenly divide the cables connected to the storage device into two groups. Place the left group of cables into the troughs of the left cable tray, and the right group into those of the right.

  • The bending radius of optical fibers must be no less than 50 mm (1.97 in.).
  • Route optical fibers along the posts on the inner sides of the cabinet and attach them when necessary.
  • Corrugated pipes are required when running optical fibers outside the cabinet, and should be extended into the cabinet by about 100 mm (3.94 in.).
  • When using corrugated pipes, optical fibers can be run through the cable trough in an equipment room containing brackets and an ESD floor, or the interlayer (the space between the concrete floor and the ESD floor).
  • If the optical fibers are led out from the top of the cabinet, a cable tray should be installed over the cabinet for cabling. If the cable tray is more than 0.8 m (31.50 in.) above the cabinet top, a cable ladder should be used.

Optical Fiber Bundling

  • Optical fiber binding tapes are used to bundle optical fibers.
  • Optical fibers should be arranged and bound neatly without crossover.

Optical Fiber Binding Tape

Before bundling optical fibers, read the instructions and precautions carefully to prevent man-made accidents.

  • Appearance of the optical fiber binding tape

    The optical fiber binding tape is 12.5 mm wide, with one hook side (made of transparent polypropylene) and one mat side (made of black nylon) working together to bundle optical fibers tightly, as shown in Figure D-3.

  • Bundling optical fibers using the optical fiber binding tape
    1. Arrange the optical fibers into a bundle. Cut off a piece of the optical fiber binding tape of appropriate length according to the size of the bundle.
    2. Hold the bundle with one hand and press one end of the optical fiber binding tape on the bundle with the thumb, as shown in Figure D-4.

    3. Strain the optical fiber binding tape by the other end with the other hand. Turn the fiber binding tape around the fiber bundle till the mat side adheres to the hook side snugly, as shown in Figure D-5.

  • Expected result

    The optical fibers are bundled successfully, as shown in Figure D-6.

  • Precautions
    • When using a fiber binding tape, keep the mat side inside and the hook side outside. It is only the mat side of the fiber binding tape that contacts the optical fiber.
    • Arrange the optical fibers tidily into a bundle before bundling.
    • Bundle the optical fibers with appropriate force. Never bundle them too tight.
    • The interval between two pieces of optical fiber binding tape should not exceed 40 cm.
    • A bundle can contain a maximum of 100 optical fibers (each with a diameter of 2 mm) or 60 optical fibers (each with a diameter of 3 mm). If more optical fibers need to be bundled, separate them into different bundles.
