NEK Kabel’s Sealine QFCI Arctic Grade (QFCU) Fibre Optics DNV, is engineered with arctic properties offering exceptional fire-retardant properties and extreme low temperatures and tested for cold bend and impact. Designed for arctic ice-breaking marine and offshore environments, this cable is applicable for harsh conditions like saline atmospheres, UV radiation, extreme temperatures, hydrocarbons resistance, oil resistance IRM 903, and drilling fluids, meeting IEC 60092-359 standards for offshore, shipboard cables and mining operations. Additionally, this cable is fire-retardant IEC60332, effectively curbing the spread of fire, emitting minimal smoke, and producing no toxic gases in the unfortunate event of a fire outbreak; and IEC 60331 fire resistant properties designed to function in a fire, ensuring the integrity of vital circuits applications. It is further mechanically enhanced with galvanised steel wire braiding (GSWB) construction providing protection against accidental damage, rodents, ballistic impact, moisture, and laying operations.

NEK Sealine Arctic CAT series are manufactured in accordance to RMRS stringent standards, and tailored for extreme cold climates, excels in cold resistance and fire protection. Improved cold impact, cold bending, and cold elongation properties make them safer for workers and easier to terminate in extreme temperatures.

NEK Sealine Fiber Optic Communication Cables possesses a full range of standard compliant multimode cables including OM1, OM2, OM3, OM4 and OM5, and single mode OS2 (G.657A1) cables; and guarantees reliable system performance for 10 Gb/s Ethernet serial transmission, 40 Gb/s and 100 Gb/s Ethernet transmission and it low attenuation values exceed and meet the requirements of the ISO/IEC 11801 standard.

The fire-resistant options include QFCI, QFOI, QFAI, QFCI-FV, QFCI-MICA, QFAI UNI, QFAI 2-UNI, QFNI, QFNB, QFXI, QFCU, QFCU-M QFAU UNI, QFAU-M UNI, QFAU-2-UNI, while fire-retardant alternatives encompass AICI, AIOI, AIAI, AIAI breakout, AIAI breakout armoured, AIAI-2-multi. These cables are designed and manufactured with SHF1, SHF2, and MUD-resistant NEK606 compound materials.
