Applied in the construction of fiber-optic link on overhead transmission lines of 35 kV and more.
Applied for aerial installation on distribution and high voltage power lines, as well as railway catenary.
For fiber optic monitoring systems.
Used for stationary installation when the optical fiber needs extra protection from mechanical damages.
Applied in ducts, trays, blocks, tunnels, collecting channels, with a risk of rodent attacks.
Applied in harsh environments with potential mechanical impact: in all ground types, swamps and harsh rivers.
Rigid yet flexible enough to be installed into microducts.
Applied in sea areas (coastal shelf and deep-sea), on navigable rivers, in lakes and water storage basins, in harsh environments, in bogs and unnavigable rivers.

Applied for aerial installations: on power lines, lamp posts, between buildings and constructions. Suitable for aerial installation on transmission equipment and power facilities in dielectric package.
Applied inside buildings (including vertical runs), in trays, channels, on outer sides of buildings, as well as in duct, in tubes and blocks. Suitable for blowing-in into protecting polyethylene tubes.
Applied for aerial installation on transmission towers, lamp posts, between buildings and constructions.

Winter is coming ☃️ Our picture may look like we are entering a new Ice Age, but that’s actually what a power line might look like in winter.
How fiber optic cables, especially OPGW, work at low temperatures and in extreme climates is a critical design consideration. Safe, reliable operation of transmission lines also requires minimizing any icing effects to avoid disasters and ideally eliminate outages.
Incab’s role in this process includes design and testing of our cables. In addition to type testing, we conduct periodic testing to ensure our cables will perform as engineered when the temperatures plunge and ice accumulates.
Our cables, including our OPGW, work in the full range of climate zones: from areas where there is no icing at all, up to the harshest conditions where icing can reach 1 inch or more. We also offer cables that can monitor temperature and even icing itself.
