Fiber Optic Cable Multi Loose Tube


A-DQ(BN)2Y-MLT – Series having Multi Loose Tube structure which is made of an assembly of colored tubes around a central strength element. Outdoor cables guarantees the protection of cable where the mechanical damage risk exists and also to guarantee stability towards environmental influences such as frost and humidity. The interstices between tubes and central strength member are filled with petroleum jelly to prevent water penetration. Aramid yarns are helically applied over the tube to provide additional tensile strength to the cable. Polyethylene (PE) sheath which is resistant to stress cracking and UV radiation. Fully dielectric construction protects the cable and also the devices connected from the electric shocks or magnetic interferences and also gives flexibility to the cable. Two layer of tube construction is available. On request following options are available:

Other number of tubes Colour options for sheath, tube and fiber

Increased Tensile strength (Aramid or Glass Yarn)

L-M-HDPE or LSZH sheath.

These cables are in a compliance with the following standard;

IEC 60794-1&2 – ISO / IEC 11801, TIA/EIA 568-C.3, TELCORDIA GR-409-CORE
