Central Loose Tube Armored Cable

Waveoptics® Central Loose Tube Armored Cable is designed for direct-buried installation, as well as for duct and aerial (lashed) installation.

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.

Two ripcords ensure a quick fiber access.

The cable contains water blocking aramid yarn that helps increase tensile strength and also provides protection against water penetration.

Corrugated steel armor makes a rugged cable rodent resistant and offers exceptional performance against compression.
