UC Armoured PE Fibre Cable

New design for easier installation

Nexans is pleased to announce a change to the design of its UC PE cable to enable easier installation.
The cable weight is reduced from 100 kg/km to 85 kg/km whilst maintaining the existing excellent mechanical characteristics of a high pulling force and crush resistance. In addition the temperature range has been extended to -40°C + 70°C.

With the corrugated steel protection and the PE jacket this cable is suited for outdoor installations that require excellent rodent protection, high crush resistance, a water tight structure and a jacket that is UV resistant. The cable can be directly buried in the ground.

The UC PE cable is a unitube loose cable that can contain up to 24 fibres. The current multitube cable with corrugated steel protection and a PE jacket (MC PE)is not changed. The maximum fibre count of the MC PE cable is 96 fibres.

With the move to this new design the N-numbers have been modified. See the table below.
