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 in substations for control purposes
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.
An excellent choice when moderate fault current capacity is needed in a compact diameter. It is also especially well-suited for highly corrosive locations, such as coastal areas.
Aluminum-clad stainless steel tube filled with water-blocking gel
Stranded wires (aluminum-clad steel wires and/or aluminum alloy wires)
Up to 96 fibers
Enhanced corrosion resistance: ACS wires and aluminum-clad stainless steel tube
Optical ground wire (OPGW) shields high-voltage conductors from lightning strikes
Aluminum alloy wires provide conductivity for fault current
