Minimum fiber bend radius is generally 10 x outer diameter of cable, unless specified differently by the manufacturer.
For a tight-buffered indoor fiber breakout cable with 8 or 12 fiber strands, does that actually apply to the outer diameter of the entire cable (which could be like 12mm or more)? Being a tight-buffered cable makes it more or less the same mechanics as in a single strand, and should place the same strain on the individual fiber, thus requiring larger minimum bend radius.
I have never seen a fiber manufacturer list a minimum bend radius specifically for the combined cable specifically.
Sorry if this seems obvious or dumb, and never thought about it before but actually I am not clear on what stable data to adopt.
What is the accurate data here?
