Cable Bend Radius

The minimum recommended bending radius during installation or after installation where cable damage will not occur. Cable bend radius during installation infers that the cable is experiencing a tensile load. Free bend infers a smaller allowable bend radius since it is at a condition of minimal load. A material put on a fiber during the drawing process to protect it from the environment and handling.
