The 12FO (1x12) Duct + ADSS Flex Tube Fiber Optic Cable SM G.657.A2 from Cablescom is a Overhead & Duct Multipurpose Fiber Optic Cables with 12FO. Aerial self support figure 8 fiber optical cable configuration is the one in which the conductors and the steel strand which supports the cable are integrally jacketed. The cable portion is attached integrally with stranded steel messenger wires. Suitable for Aerial installation except on power lines. The cable design provides easy and economical one step installation and stable performance over a wide temperature range and is compatible with any telecommunication grade optical fibre. The strength member is designed to withstand the tensile forces of the installation and may be metallic or non-metallic. The design configurations of this cable consist of central tube or stranded loose tube.
The 12FO (1x12) Duct + ADSS Flex Tube Fiber Optic Cable SM G.657.A2 from Cablescom is a ADSS - Aerial cable with 12 fibers within 1 flex tube. This totally dielectric distribution cable for optical networks has a micromodule structure (flex tube construction) and a high density polyethylene sheath with incorporated non-metallic reinforcements, allowing a high dielectric capability and mechanical resistant. Longitudinally watertight by sweallable yarns and tapes to avoid water penetration. The optical fibers comply with ITU-T recommendations G.657.A2
For outdoor use; Installation in Ducts by pulling or blowing + ADSS Aerial self supported overhead lines with medium span (<60m), access at the end or by stitching.
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.A2 fiber type is characterized by 7.5 mm minimum bending radius. These specifications of the G657 fibers allow to have a better cost-efficiency due to compact cable designs and reduced space requirements. Find some benefits when using the G.657.A2 fiber type:
