    ALPETH Cable is a solid insulated, single jacket air core design intended for aerial installations. In this application, the cable must be attached to a support strand (messenger). ALPETH cable is not recommended for any buried or duct application, with or without air pressure.

    Features:
    • Tightly controlled individual conductor dimensions
    • Specially designed pair twist lays
    • Core wrap
    • Bare aluminum tape shield
    • Polyethylene jacket

    Benefits:
    • Limits resistance unbalance of paired conductors
    • Minimizes crosstalk and meets the capacitance unbalance requirements
    • Protects core and provides improved mechanical and electrical characteristics
    • Assures good electrical contact with non-piercing bonding clamps
    • Provides a tough, flexible, protective covering that withstands exposure to sunlight, atmospheric temperatures and stresses expected in standard installations

    Specifications:
    Conductor: Solid annealed copper

    Insulation: Solid polyolefin in distinctive colors to facilitate pair identification

    ≤ 25-Pair Core: Pairs are combined into a cylindrical core

    > 50-Pair Core: Multiples of 25-pair groups are assembled to form the final cable core; each group is identified by color coded non-hygroscopic binders; for 1,200-pair and larger, the color code is a Mirror Image design

    Core Wrap: Non-hygroscopic dielectric material protects the core and helps provide core-to-shield dielectric strength

    Shield: Corrugated bare 8 mil aluminum tape is applied longitudinally over the core wrap

    Jacket: Black polyethylene

    Shield/Jacket Options: If extra mechanical protection is desired, an additional outer steel armor and polyethylene jacket (UM) can be requested

    Jacket Marking: Manufacturer’s identification, pair count, AWG, product identification, sequential footage and a telephone handset printed at 2 foot intervals

    Standards Compliance:
    • Telcordia® GR-421-CORE Issue 2
    • RoHS-compliant

    Applications: Lashed aerial
