Outdoor Armored Fiber Optic Cable

Central Loose Tube Armored Cable with Single LSZH Jacket Indoor/outdoor Fiber Optic Cable are economical option for low fiber counts. Furthermore Robust structure is a good solution for access and distribution for campus & industrial plant, mining. Also those areas where the fiber optic cable may be exposed to physical damage. The fibers are placed within a gel-filled central buffer. Outdoor fiber optic cables guarantee the protection where the mechanical damage risk exists and also to guarantee stability towards environmental influences such as frost and humidity. Then Glass yarns are applied over the tube to provide additional tensile strength & rodent protection. Corrugated steel tape armor provides additional mechanical (crush and rodent) protection with a high-strength ripcord under the armor for easy stripping. Low Smoke Zero Halogen Free Flame Retardant sheath which is resistant to stress cracking and UV (Ultra Violet) radiation. 

Upon request following options are available:

Color options for sheath and optic fiber is available.

Increased Pulling strength (Aramid or Glass Yarn)

L-M-HDPE or LSZH sheath.
