StandardsInternational : EN 187000; EN 187100; EN 187102; EN 188000; EN 188100; IEC 60793; IEC 60794; ITU-T Rec. G.650; ITU-T Rec. G.652
The cable type is intended for outdoor use in aerial installations. The design can incorporate 12 to 288 fibres in loose tubes. The individually coloured fibres are tubed in groups of maximum 12, and stranded onto a central dielectric fibre reinforced strength member (FRP). The cable type is longitudinal water-blocked through the use of water-swellable materials. The cable core and the suspension strand are sheathed together with halogen-free black polyethylene in a figure eight section.
