InAir ADSS (All-Dielectric Self-Supporting) is a cost-effective self-supporting aerial cable for use on short and medium spans up to 656 ft with maximum rated design tension up to 2,248 lb. This design is dry making it easy to strip. It has a wide range of operating temperatures from -76°F to +158°F and installation temperatures from -22°F to +158°F. It also features reduced weight and size and low susceptibility to ice and wind loads.

Check how this multi tube single jacket self-supporting cable can be deployed in FTTH system.

Visit our ACES: Advanced Cable Engineering System: it is a unique software tool which helps engineers select the optimal ADSS design along with the associated accessories. ACES ADSS also helps engineers and planners prepare cost estimates, generate a complete bill of materials, determine reel lengths, and plan logistics. ACES SPOT makes calculation of space potential around overhead transmission lines with ADSS cables as well as choosing the optimal ADSS cable attachment point on the tower quite easy. Use ACES CATS for simple calculations of tension and sags.
