• Superior Essex Cable Loose Tube Single Jacket Single Armor Self Support Series 12M Cable

    Product Details

    Loose tube cables are the product of choice as the backbone in Outside Plant (OSP) applications. Loose tube self support cables are designed for use in aerial applications as an alternative to lashing. These cables reduce installation time and costs. Superior Essex offers self support cables for spans up to 700 feet. The loose tube design offers reliable transmission performance over a broad temperature range. The durable loose tube design features optical fibers placed inside PFM™ gel-filled buffer tubes. The core is constructed by stranding the buffer tubes around a central member using a reverse oscillating lay (ROL) and wrapped with flexible strength members covered with a water-blocking tape. A corrugated steel armor is applied and then encased in a black jacket with an integrated EHS steel messenger. Rip cords are included under the armor for ease of entry.
