QFCI - QFCU Fibre Optic Cables

In a world where data transmission speed and reliability are paramount, the use of fibre optic cables has revolutionised the way we communicate. 

Cable Solutions Worldwide is at the forefront of cutting-edge fibre optic and data cables that cater to the demanding needs of various industries, including oil & gas, subsea, marine & shipbuilding and renewable energy.

Fibre optic cables are essential for transmitting data over long distances and in challenging environments, such as subsea installations and remote offshore locations. Unlike traditional electrical cables, fibre optic cables utilise light to transmit signals, offering unparalleled speed and immunity to electrical interference. This makes them ideal for high-speed communication applications where data integrity is crucial.

Cable Solutions has successfully undertaken a wide array of projects that highlight the versatility and reliability of fibre optic cables. From enabling offshore communications between oil platforms and subsea installations to transmitting scientific data from remote areas worldwide, their bespoke cable designs have consistently delivered superior results. By closely collaborating with customers and understanding the unique requirements of each application, Cable Solutions ensures that their fibre optic cables are optimised for factors such as temperature, pressure, strength, depth, and other critical criteria.

The Fire Resistant QFCI – QFCU fibre optic cables are characterised by a Low Smoke and Halogen Free outer sheath, making them ideal for critical applications such as PA/GA System, DP System, ESD System, Security System, and PLC Control System. Furthermore, these cables are approved by DNV-GL and ABS, ensuring both quality and safety in their performance.
