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.
An effective aerial solution when OPGW or ADSS cannot be used.
Stainless steel tube
Aluminum-clad steel wire
Aluminum alloy wire
Aluminum alloy wire

ACS wires are highly corrosion-resistant
Effective solution to provide redundancy in harsh conditions, such as long cable spans, crossings of cable spans, power lines with previously installed OPGW and ADSS and others
InPhase OPPC (Optical Phase Conductor) is an optimal solution to provide redundancy in harsh conditions, such as long cable spans, crossings of cable spans, power lines with previously installed OPGW and ADSS and others. InPhase OPPC cable does not increase the load on support towers. It can be used as a backup or independent communication channel.
The main application of InPhase OPPC is the transmission of electrical power and construction of extensive optical communication system for data transmission. It can have up to 288 fibers and is highly corrosion-resistant. The rated breaking strength (RBS) range can be from 3,372 to 44,962 lb.
Outer layers of InPhase OPPC are made of aluminum alloy wire which effectively removes heat from a lightning stroke point and increases short-circuit current resistance. It can also be used for distributed acoustic sensing (DAS) and distributed temperature monitoring (DTS) to prevent third-party intervention, detect place of lightning strike and short circuit.
