OPGW Stranded Stainless Steel Tube

Applied in the construction of fiber-optic link on overhead transmission lines of 35 kV and more.

OPGW Stranded Stainless Steel Tube

  • 5
    Stranded wires (ACS wires and /or aluminum alloy wires)
  • 4
    Stranded wires (ACS wires and /or aluminum alloy wires)
  • 3
    Stainless steel tube
  • 2
    Optic fiber
  • 1
    Central strength member (ACS wires or aluminum alloy wires)


Up to 288 fibers in a tube

ACS wires are rustproof

Aluminum alloy wires shield the high-voltage conductors from lightning strikes

Mastering the technology of steel module manufacturing and stranding of steel zinc-coated wires allowed us to create a new product: MASS — Metallic Aerial Self Supporting Cable.
