Applied in the construction of fiber-optic link on overhead transmission lines of 35 kV and more.
Applied for aerial installation on distribution and high voltage power lines, as well as railway catenary.
For fiber optic monitoring systems.
Used for stationary installation when the optical fiber needs extra protection from mechanical damages.
Applied in ducts, trays, blocks, tunnels, collecting channels, with a risk of rodent attacks.
Applied in harsh environments with potential mechanical impact: in all ground types, swamps and harsh rivers.
Rigid yet flexible enough to be installed into microducts.
Applied in sea areas (coastal shelf and deep-sea), on navigable rivers, in lakes and water storage basins, in harsh environments, in bogs and unnavigable rivers.

Applied for aerial installations: on power lines, lamp posts, between buildings and constructions. Suitable for aerial installation on transmission equipment and power facilities in dielectric package.
Applied inside buildings (including vertical runs), in trays, channels, on outer sides of buildings, as well as in duct, in tubes and blocks. Suitable for blowing-in into protecting polyethylene tubes.
Applied for aerial installation on transmission towers, lamp posts, between buildings and constructions.
Steel optical module, clad wire and temporary optical cable.
An excellent design for moderate to high fault current capacities and when ease of splice prep is especially important.
Central strength member (fiberglass reinforced plastic)
PBT loose tubes filled with water-blocking gel
Aluminum-clad steel wires and/or aluminum alloy wires
Convenient splice preparation
Up to 144 fibers
Highly corrosion-resistant: ACS wires and aluminum pipe
Optical ground wire (OPGW) shields high-voltage conductors from lightning strikes
Aluminum alloy wires provide conductivity for fault current
