1. In terms of weight, the field optical cable needs to be relatively light and can be carried by one person; the armored optical cable will be relatively heavy because there is no need to consider mobility.
2. In terms of quality, the communication requirements of field optical cables are relatively low, as long as they can achieve short-distance communication in the field; armored optical cables require ultra-long-distance and accurate signal transmission.
The field optical cable is a non-metal optical cable specially designed for use in field operations and complex environments that require rapid wiring or repeated retracting and use. It is light in weight and convenient to carry; it is resistant to tension, pressure, and has a high strength-to-weight ratio; it has good flexibility. Easy to bend; oil-resistant, abrasion-resistant, flame-retardant; wide applicable temperature range, etc. It is suitable for the rapid wiring or repeated retracting and releasing of military field communication systems; radar, aviation, and ship wiring; oil fields, mines, ports, TV live broadcasts, and emergency repairs of communication lines and other occasions with severe conditions.
