CableLAN Nuclear

CableLAN Nuclear supplies fiber optic and electrical communication products designed specifically for nuclear power plants and manufactured by today’s leading manufacturers. CableLAN Nuclear has more than 45 years of experience in specifying, designing and manufacturing fiber optic and electrical safety related cables. We actively participate in IEEE383, IEEE323, IEEE1202 and IEEE1682 standards. We’ve also participated in many other working groups who developed standards for electrical and fiber optic cables used by the utility industry around the world.

CableLAN Nuclear has its own NQA-1 and 10CFR50, Appendix B QA programs. As the number of companies with this program shrinks, our QA program can secure the right communication products for your nuclear plant. Let us simplify your purchasing function by being your “Sourcing Solution”!

CableLAN is the exclusive distributor of fiber optic cables manufactured by Prysmian Cable , using NQA-1 and 10CFR50, Appendix B quality assurance programs. The world’s largest cable manufacturer, Prysmian is the world’s only integrated optical fiber and fiber optic cable manufacturer with NQA-1 and Appendix B programs. All Prysmian fiber optic cables are completely manufactured in their own plants.

Prysmian’s optical fibers, made by its proprietary plasma chemical vapor deposition (PCVD) process, have outstanding optical performance and superior radiation resistance.

Fiber Optic Cables

CableLAN supplies breakout, tight buffer and loose tube cables with both multimode and singlemode fibers. Breakout cables, the most robust design, are easily terminated into almost any connector. Especially popular in nuclear plants, breakout cables minimize the cable’s total installed cost. For outdoor installation, loose tube cables are the recommended design.

All our cables meet the flame test requirements of IEEE383, IEEE 1202 and IEEE1682. Our cables contain no PVC. The cables have proven 60 year life, as determined by Arrhenius techniques and have been tested for exposure to extremely elevated radiation levels.

Cables can contain 62.5/125 or 50/125 multimode, or singlemode fibers, or combination of each. Radiation resistant fibers are available in any fiber type, which have been to maintain outstanding optical performance during and after radiation exposure.

Cat 5e and Cat 6 Cables

Today’s plants use digital communications throughout the facility. CableLAN supplies LSZH Cat 6 and Cat 5e 4-pr electrical cables that meet the flame test requirements of IEEE383 and IEEE1202 and are PVC-free!

Where a plenum rated cable is needed, CableLAN supplies a PVC-free design with fluoropolymer insulation and jacket.

While these cables have not been evaluated for accident conditions, they are suitable for use in cable trays or conduit throughout the plant.

Cable Assemblies & Connectors

CableLAN provides a variety of optical fiber connectors and pre-terminated optical cable assemblies, using designs selected specifically for nuclear plant applications. By purchasing your connectors or pre-terminated cable assemblies from us, you’re assured that the connectors and cable are compatible. Pre-terminated cable assemblies eliminate expensive field labor and are tested for optical performance; therefore, your overall costs are less. We’ve been supplying connectors and assemblies to nuclear plants for many years.
