Do you know how much heat fiber optic cables can take and still be able to reliably transmit information?<!=question_end>

According to Corning cable systems specifications for most of their fiber they define the maximum operating temperature as +70°C (+158°F)
If you have a requirement beyond that, I would contact them directly for specially built FO cable.
