Used by electric utilities on transmission lines with the voltage of 35 kV and higher for creating optical communication lines and protecting the power lines from lightning strikes.
Applied for aerial installation on distribution and power transmission lines for building long distance optical communication systems.
Used for distributed fiber optic sensing in different applications.
Used for indoor and outdoor applications where fire resistance is a must. Remain functional under direct flame for at least 180 minutes.
Applied in ducts, conduits and trays with no risk of rodent attacks. Can also be lashed.
Designed for high reliability in harsh environments with potential mechanical impact. Applied in all ground types, swamps, and harsh rivers.
Designed for air blowing in ducts and microducts for building reliable underground communication networks.
Designed for underwater application with increased crush and tensile loads.

Used for cost-effective one-step aerial installation mostly in rural areas where the spans between poles are not long .
Applied in substations for control purposes.
Used to create communication lines between the common distribution box and a location inside the building (including vertical runs), between entrances or corridors in office buildings.
Applied for aerial installation on transmission towers, lightning poles, between buildings and structures for communication networks in rural areas.

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.
