InAir ADSS FiberGlass (All-Dielectric Self-Supporting Fiberglass yarns) is the most affordable self-supporting fiber optic cable for short and medium spans up to 656 ft. The perfect choice for city trunk lines, it can be installed on distribution and transmission lines up to 34.5 kV. It has reduced weight and size compared to a double jacket ADSS FiberGlass design. Also due to fiberglass yarns this design is rodent proof. This is a dry ADSS aerial cable but can come as gel filled as well. It features 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 Configurator ACES: Advanced Cable Engineering System, a unique software tool to help engineers select the optimal ADSS design along with the associated accessories. ACES ADSS also assists engineers and planners in preparing cost estimates, generating a complete bill of materials, determining reel lengths, and planning 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 very easy. Finally, ACES CATS can be used for simple calculations of tension and sags.
