    Flex Tube Locate cables are designed to offer low resistivity (less than 10 Ohms per mile) and are for use in long distance remote location systems. These cables make use of a highly flexible tube that contains up to 8 loose optical fiber bundles, each containing 12 optical fibers. PFM™ gel is used inside the tube to reduce the time needed to access the fibers. The core is wrapped with a water-swellable tape to block water flow. A copper metallic locatable tape is applied and then encased in a black, UV resistant outer jacket of HDPE. Ripcords are included under the tape for ease of access to the core tube.
