Central Loose Tube All-Dielectric Slim Cable

Waveoptics® Loose tube all-dielectric cables are the most commonly-deployed outside plant cables, because of its price and its installation flexibility, since these cables can be installed both in aerial (lashed) installations as well as in ducts through the following techniques: air-blown, jetted or pulled into a duct. Waveoptics® Central Loose Tube Slim Cable has a reduced weight design and smaller diameter that allows the usage of smaller ducts.

Central Loose Tube All-Dielectric Slim Cable

Waveoptics® Loose tube all-dielectric cables are the most commonly-deployed outside plant cables, because of its price and its installation flexibility, since these cables can be installed both in aerial (lashed) installations as well as in ducts through the following techniques: air-blown, jetted or pulled into a duct. Waveoptics® Central Loose Tube Slim Cable has a reduced weight design and smaller diameter that allows the usage of smaller ducts.

Single loose tube made of PBT which provides great mechanical properties under a wide range of conditions such as crush test and impact test, and is filled with water blocking gel.

PE single jacket with additives makes a resistant, durable and easy to strip cable, providing superior protection against UV radiation, fungus, abrasion and other environmental factors.

A single ripcord ensures a quick fiber access.

The cable contains glass yarn that helps increase tensile strength.
