The 72FO (6x12) ADSS - Aerial Loose Tube Fiber Optic Cable SM G.657.A1 (Part number: 60028039) from Prysmian with 72FO. All-dielectric self-supporting cable (ADSS) is strong enough to support itself between poles, being used in optical networks, in self supported overhead power lines, suspended on poles or mounted on buildings being the best solution for quick and low-cost installations since the poles are already mounted from legacy networks.
The 72FO (6x12) ADSS - Aerial Fiber Optic Cable G.657.A1 from Prysmian is a ADSS- Aerial cable with 72 fibers within 6 loose tubes. This distribution cable for optical networks has a loose tube structure and a inner polyethylene sheath with one ripcord laid beneath and a outer HDPE sheath with one ripcord beneath too. It has also aramid yarns as peripheral strenght elements. The glass fiber is reinforced plastic rod (FRP). The optical fibers comply with ITU-T recomendations G.657A1.
For outdoor use; Max span 400 m.
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 OS2 G.657 standard single-mode fibers were developed to allow a better bending radius regarding the G.652 standard. For the OS2 G.657 fiber there are 4 subcategories: G.657.A1, G.657.A2, G.657.B2, G.657.B3. The G.657.A1 fiber type is characterized by 10 mm minimum bending radius. These specifications of the G.657 fibers allow to have a better cost-efficiency due to compact cable designs and reduced space requirements.
While using a loose tube construction in cables, you can:
The loose tube construction solution can be chosen for the following applications:
Single mode fiber uses a LASER light source, is a type of optical fiber with a small core diameter that allows only one mode of light to propagate. It is used in telecommunications and data transmission systems to transmit signals over long distances with low attenuation and high bandwidth. Single mode fiber is ideal for high-speed and long-distance applications, such as internet backbone networks, cable television networks, and fiber-to-the-home (FTTH) services. Its narrow core reduces the dispersion of light, allowing signals to travel further and faster than with multimode fiber.
