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.
Convenient for blowing into microducts
PBT loose tube filled with water-blocking gel
Up to 24 fibers
Operation tension up to 34 lb
Reduced weight and size. Convenient for microduct
BlownIn CT, as all air blown fiber optic cables, is rigid yet flexible enough to be installed into microducts. This micro fiber optic cable consists of a PBT central loose tube with optical fibers (can have up to 24 fibers) and water-blocking gel. Aramid yarns as strength elements are laid over the loose tube.
It is an all-dielectric design suitable for indoor and outdoor cable conduits and trays. This design also features reduced weight (reaching up to 0.007 lb/ft) and size (with cable diameter reaching up to 0.134 in). Operation tension can be up to 18 lb (0.08 kN) and installation tension can reach up to 34 lb (0.15 kN). It also has a wide range of operating temperatures from -4°F to +158°F and installation temperatures from -4°F to +122°F.
This air-blown microduct fiber optic cable is optimized for use in FTTH networks. Blowing technology is a cost-effective, fast, and environmentally friendly solution than traditional type of deployments and it also provides a simpler installation using fewer resources.
