Our Range

ArmourLux300 is our mini armoured option with a helical steel tape and braid, and the Armourlux500 uses a military grade Tactical fibre filled with aramid yarn.

How much to a reel?

That depends. It depends on the number of fibre cores and the type of cable. Most links require a minimum of two cores, so it’s usually down to which kind of cable you choose, ArmourLux300 (armoured) or ArmourLux500 (non-armoured). See the table for exact reel capacities for each cable.

Raw cable comparison.

Take a look at the tables below for the raw cable comparison, to see the differences between the 300 and 500 series cables.


Nothing frustrates like an iffy connection. We’ve taken standard connectors and made them as tough as we can, capable of taking more things outdoor life throws at them.


As tough as the LC comes. The industry standard connector you know and love but ruggedised and able to plug straight into LC sockets without the need for an adaptor.


Industry standard familiar to anyone who’s used Fibre Optics before, it's a small connector often seen on modern active equipment, simplex & duplex.

LC Uniboot

The same as LC, but both fibre cores terminate in a single bodied duplex connector. More convenient to use and stronger.

ST Connector

A bayonet style simplex metal connector which is rugged and has a large installed base.

SC Connector

A square connector similar in size to an ST and seen on older equipment. Largely replaced with LC.

IP68 Connector

A high-impact plastic ruggedised waterproof and weather-proof LC Uniboot connector. Perfect if you want to make a connection outdoors, especially when the weather doesn’t look so good.
