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.
The most cost-effective solution for use on short and medium spans. It will have a smaller diameter and be lighter compared to a double jacket design. The fiberglass yarn provides a degree of rodent resistance.
Central strength member (dielectric fiberglass reinforced plastic)
Dry loose tube
Maximum rated design tension up to 2248 lb with span lengths up to 656 ft
Reduced weight and size
Low susceptibility to ice and wind loads
Cost-effective solution for city trunk lines
Aerial installation on distribution and transmission lines up to 34.5 kV
Wide range of operating temperatures. Installation temperature down to -22°F
Gel-filled option available
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.
