Plenum rated cables are also called Communications Plenum Cable (CMP). First of all we need to make it clear the word “plenum” and then we discuss what the plenum rated fiber optic cable is.
What is Plenum Fiber Cable?
According to National Electric Code (NEC), a plenum is a “compartment or chamber to which one or more air ducts are connected and forms part of the air distribution system.” that is to say, as a plenum, the space above an acoustic tile ceiling would have to extend above other rooms in the same building or be open to ducts connecting it to other parts of the building. The concern is that during a fire, if there is burning material in a plenum air space, smoke and fumes can travel through air ducts to the whole building. For this reason, there are codes to restrict the types of materials (such as cables) that can be placed in the plenum.
Plenum-rated fiber optic cables are different from other types of cabling by the special types of plastics used in the fiber optic cable jackets. Because plenum cables are routed through air circulation spaces, which contain very few fire barriers, they need to be coated in flame-retardant, low smoke materials. These plastics offer good resistance against possible fire, and in the event that they do begin to burn, they will not emit large quantities of harmful fumes.
Plenum cables are manufactured and tested to insure the cable will not be the fuel to a fire. There are many materials that meet Plenum specifications. The most common is Teflon TM by DuPont. The materials required to pass Plenum fire test specifications usually cause a price increase over non-plenum-rated cables. Usually, Plenum fire resistant rated cables are two-three times the cost of PVC versions.
