The 60FO (5x12) Duct Loose Tube Fiber Optic Cable SM G.657.A1 Metallic Armoured (Part number: 60045477) from Prysmian with 60FO and Metallic Armoured construction. Conduit cables are underground cables, that may be conducted by duct or buried directly into the ground. There are several types of protections for this cable such as anti-rodent or double protection. Conduit cables are built to withstand harsh environments and are typically routed by pull or blow.
The 60FO (5x12) Duct Fiber Optic Cable G.657.A1 Metallic Armoured from Prysmian is a Duct cable with 60 fibers within 5 loose tubes. This distribution cable for optical networks has a loose tube structure with a thermoplastic material, containing up to 12 fibres and filled with a suitable water tightness compound and a inner polyethylene with 2 ripcords beneath and a outer HDPE sheath with armour reinforcement on both sides with copolymer coated corrugated steel tape with overlap (steel thickness: 0,15 mm; two ripcords beneath the tape). The glass fiber is reinforced plastic rod (FRP), with plastic oversheathing when needed. It has also aramid yarns as peripheral strenght elements. The optical fibers comply with ITU-T recomendations G.657A1.
For outdoor use.
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.
