Brand: Cablescom

Product Details






Product Description

The 48FO (4x12) Direct Burial Loose Tube Fiber Optic Cable SM G.652.D Rodent and Mechanical Protection (Part number: EE2772V00004800NO) from Cablescom with 48FO 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 48FO (4x12) Direct Burial Loose Tube Fiber Optic Cable SM G.652.D Rodent and Mechanical Protection from Cablescom is a Direct Buried cable with 48 fibers within 4 loose tubes. This distribution cable for optical networks has a loose tube structure with jelly-filled PBT tubes, a SP type polyethylene sheath and is armoured with corrugated steel tape longitudinally applied with overlap, for rodent and impact resistant. Water-blocking yarns and/or tapes prevent the progression of water inside the cable. The optical fibers comply with ITU-T recommendations G.652.D (EN 60793-2 - classe B 50 B 1.3).


For outdoor use; Installation in underground ducts or directly buried. 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 - 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 - 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.
