Product description

Structure designed to fit up to 24 tubes stranded around a central strength element.
Depending on the fibres/tubes count, tube(s) may be replaced by filling element(s).
Each jelly filled tube may include up to 12 optical fibres.
Longitudinal water-tightness is ensured by swellable elements (XD1C1) or by filling compound (jelly) (XF1C1).
Tensile strength elements are dimensioned in order to meet the tensile requirements.
The steel armour, embedded between the black inner and outer PE sheath, provides the cable with a very efficient rodent protection and an excellent resistance to compression, feature required for direct burial.
The cable is longitundinally water-blocked.
