What Is Fiber Optic Cable Bend Radius and Why Does It Matter?

– The bend radius is the radius in which a cable can be bent without getting damaged

– If fiber is bent sharply light can leak out causing data loss, and attenuation.

– Cable manufacturers always specify a minimum bend depending on the specific fiber cable.

– In general, the minimum bend radius should not be less than 10x the outer diameter (OD) of the fiber cable

Thus, a 3mm cable should not have any bends less than 30mm in radius

#Example: Simply imagine a garden hose, the water flow will be reduced or stopped completely if you bend it too sharply, So, in Fiber cable the light flow will be reduced.
