March 14, 2006 Lake Oswego, OR -- Timbercon's Stainless Steel Ribbon line of high density, multi-fiber cable products are especially designed for applications in harsh physical environments. Constructed of crush, abrasion, and chemically resistant stainless steel jacketing and MT ribbon fiber connectors, the assemblies are suitable for applications ranging from machinery interconnects to military and industrial uses.

The cable assemblies are available with 4 to 24 fibers in standard (MT-to-MT), breakout (MT-to-SC, ST, LC, SC), and custom configurations. The products are an expansion of the company's Ribbon Fiber Assembly line. The company says the expanded product line provides customers with a single source of cabling products for use in both harsh environments and traditional applications.

"We've seen a substantial increase in demand for a high-density, multi-fiber product that will perform and maintain structural integrity in less than ideal conditions," says Sean Gitt, director of marketing for Timbercon. "This product line provides a new solution for space-constrained and harsh environment applications where traditional fiber cable assemblies are just not rugged or compact enough to be a viable option."
