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.
Duct cables are usually laid underground in ducts, conduits, and trays with no or a low risk of rodent attacks. This type of black-jacketed cables is also suitable for aerial installation on power lines, lamp posts, railway overhead systems. Duct cables are widely used in the conventional telecommunication duct systems, urban networks, access networks, and in FTTH networks. Cables installed in ducts are resistant to weather conditions and mechanical damages.
Underground ducting for cables is a cabling protection system in which fiber optic and other types of cables run through and which is designed as durable as possible to make sure cables are protected from the weather and any other external conditions. This type of optical communication system installation allows for cable installation, replacement, and maintenance without the need to rip up the soil.
Among the methods of duct cable installation, pulling and air-blowing are the most common ones, though cables can also be pushed into ducts.
Incab offers a range of InDuct fiber optic cables. They are all-dielectric and can be manufactured as flame-retardant. All Incab InDuct cables have a stranded core and a single polyethylene jacket that are generally produced dry but can also be supplied as gel-filled on request. All cables have a wide range of operating temperatures from -40°F to +158°F and installation temperatures from -22°F to +158°F (operating temperature range can be increased on request).
