 heat and fiber optic wires
Do you know how much heat fiber optic cables can take and still be able to reliably transmit information?
 Answer by Joseph Golan posted 11 Oct 2005
Dear jenelle,

According to Corning cable systems specifications for most of their fiber they define the maximum operating temperature as +70C (+158F)

If you have a requirement beyond that, I would contact them directly for specially built FO cable.
