Product Description

The 72FO (6x12) Direct Burial Flex Tube Fiber Optic Cable SM G.652.D Rodent and Mechanical Protection (Part number: EE5325G000072F0N) from Cablescom with 72FO and Metallic Armoured construction . Direct buried cable is optimised for injection into ducts in optical networks and is usually directly buried or installed in ducts by air-blowing, jetted, pulled or pushed into the duct.

The 72FO (6x12) Direct Burial Flex Tube Fiber Optic Cable SM G.652.D Rodent and Mechanical Protection from Cablescom is a Direct Buried cable with 72 fibers within 6 flex tubes. This distribution cable for optical networks has a micromodule structure (flex tube construction) and a double polyethylene sheath reinforced with corrugated steel tape and peripheral reinforcement of hydro-swelling wicks of glass placed in a helix to prevent the progression of water inside the cable. The optical fibers comply with ITU-T recommendations G.652.D (EN 60793-2 - class B 50 B 1.3)


For outdoor use; Installation in railway networks, laying directly in the ground. For use in medium-or long-distance networks.

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 - Flex tube

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

  • Reduced installation time;
  • Easier handling, particularly in fiber distribution and termination units;
  • Fast access to fibers; easy to remove the module material with no tools required;
  • Small quantity of grease, minimizing clean-up time;
  • Avoid the risk of tube kinking (potentially causing attenuation increments or fiber breakage);
  • Simple mid-span breakout enabling single module extraction to aid distribution.

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

  • Direct buried;
  • Rodent resistant;
  • Gunshot resistant;
  • Facade;
  • Indoor and outdoor;
  • Hybrid;
  • Underwater;
  • Tunnel.

FOC Protection - Metallic Armoured

Metallic Armoured is a type of fiber optic cable protection designed to provide a high degree of mechanical protection against impacts, crushing, and other hazards. This protection is achieved by using an armor layer made of metal wires, tapes, or corrugated steel, which provides a high level of strength and durability. Metallic armoured FOC is commonly used in outdoor and industrial applications where the cable is exposed to harsh environments, such as oil rigs, mining operations, and military installations. This type of protection also provides additional protection against electromagnetic interference and other sources of signal distortion.
