Join Mike Riddle on his ADSS Engineering 101 webinar

Join Mike Riddle on his encore performance on ADSS Engineering 101 on September 23 at 11:00 am (GMT -5:00)!

Register now!

ADSS Engineering 101 will teach you these eight important design elements of all-dielectric self-supporting cable (ADSS):

  • Jacket configuration,
  • Jacket material,
  • Strength material,
  • Core design,
  • Tube design,
  • Fibers per tube,
  • Tube material, and
  • Outer jacket adhesion to strength material.

Three of these topics are controversial. We will discuss both sides of these issues as evenly as possible so that you can make an informed decision about your cable. Then we will continue with learning about how the tubes and optical core should be made, and why this “how” is important to long-term performance. We will conclude with a primer on sag and tension data for ADSS and how to determine when a track-resistant jacket is necessary.

Hope to see you joined
