Product Description

The 48FO (4X12) Air Blown Microduct Loose tube Fiber Optic Cable SM G.652.D HDPE Dielectric Unarmoured Black (Part number: PTS138816611) from Optivine with 48FO and Dielectric Unarmoured construction . Air blown microduct fiber cable is optimised for injection into microducts and is used in optical networks, more specifically for use in Fiber-to-the-home (FTTH) and Fiber-to-the-Desk (FTTD) networks. This technique that is lower at cost, quicker and more environmentally friendly than traditional deployment, allowing a simpler instalation with less resources.


  • For access, distribution, City network and FTTx applications.
  • Fully dielectric cable
  • Designed to be rapidly installed by blowing.
  • High blowing distance due to the excellent friction properties of the outer sheath.


  • Optical Fibers;
  • Fillers (nature plastic rods when needed);
  • Water Blocking Yarns;
  • Ripcord under jacket;
  • Water Blocking Glass Yarns Tape;
  • Outer Jacket (HDPE);
  • Cable Diameter: 5.7 ± 0.2 mm
  • Cable Weight (kg/km): 31


  • Central Strength Member (CSM)- Fiber reinforced plastic rod (FRP);

Fiber Type (ITU) - OS2 G.652.D

Each type of single-mode fiber has its own area of application, and the evolution of these optical fiber specifications reflects the evolution of transmission system technology from the earliest installation of single-mode optical fiber to the present day. Choose the right fiber is very important for each project/installation. The specification of the OS2 fiber is generally considered as the SMF standard for the single-mode fiber. For the OS2 G.652 fiber there are 4 subcategories: G.652.A, G.652.B, G.652.C, G.652.D.

The OS2 G.652.D single-mode fibers are the most used type of fiber for networking and communications applications. The OS2 G.652.D fiber type provides a zero dispersion at 1310nm wavelength therefor it is optimized for operation in the 1310nm Wavelength. The regular performance remains on the 1550nm wavelength.

Benefits of using the OS2 G.652.D fibers:

  • Backward compatibility with earlier versions;
  • Lower system cost;
  • Offers zero water peak and seamless splicing;
  • Lower splicing losses;
  • Supports longer cable runs.

FOC Construction - Loose tube

While using a loose tube construction in cables, you can:

  • Pull and stretch without causing fractures from bending or tension;
  • Have full resistant protection of the fiber core, cladding and coating (mechanical protection and UV protection);
  • Reach optimized performances at extreme temperatures;
  • Avoid the risk of environmental damage (including water damage).

The loose tube construction solution can be chosen for the following applications:

  • Direct buried;
  • Aerial;
  • Duct;
  • Rodent resistant;
  • Indoor and outdoor;
  • Water-blocking;
  • Temperature endurance.

FOC Protection - Dielectric Unarmoured

Dielectric unarmoured is a type of fiber optic cable protection that provides electrical isolation without the added mechanical protection of an armor layer. This type of protection is achieved by using dielectric materials such as aramid yarns or glass fibers to provide strength to the cable. Dielectric unarmoured FOC is typically used in indoor installations, where the cable is not exposed to the same level of mechanical stress and environmental factors as outdoor installations. It is also used in applications where weight and flexibility are a concern, such as in aerospace or automotive industries.

Jacket Material - HDPE

HDPE (high-density polyethylene) is a jacket material that offers excellent protection against moisture, chemicals, and abrasion. It is highly resistant to impact, making it ideal for rugged applications where cables are exposed to rough handling. HDPE is also UV-resistant, and it can withstand extreme temperatures, making it a good choice for outdoor and industrial environments. However, it is less flexible than other materials, which may make it difficult to use in certain applications.
