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.
When it is not possible to suspend the cable on overhead towers or install it into cable ducts, cable can be buried in any ground types, swamps, and harsh rivers. A distinctive feature of a direct buried cable is the armor, which protects cable from crushing loads. Incab InArmor cable range consists of 16 designs.
Direct buried cable installation is more expensive than overhead installation, but sometimes it is a better option as optical cable installed into the ground is more durable and reliable than overhead cable. Also, it’s a fine solution for long cross-country installations.
InArmor cables can be either dielectric (with armor of fiberglass rods) or non-dielectric (with armor of galvanized steel wires).
Choose the design considering the soil and the operating conditions: reinforced designs with double armor suit harsh environments with the proven design life of 25 years. If the laying of fiber optic communication line passes through wetlands or river crossings, then additional protection against moisture may be required in the design. Incab uses aluminum and polymer tape, which gives additional protection of the cable core against moisture.
All InArmor cables may be produced as flame-retardant.
