Armored Aerial Fiber Cable – GYXTW


Cable Structure:

The 250um bare fibers are positioned in a loose tube made of a high modulus plastic. The tubes are filled with a water-resistant filling compound. The tube is wrapped with a layer of PSP longitudinally. Between the PSP and the loose tube, water-blocking material is applied to keep the cable compact and watertight. Two parallel steel wires are placed at the two sides of the steel tape. Then the cable is completed with a polyethylene (PE) sheath.

The nominal value of the PE sheath minimum thickness outside of the strength member is 0.8mm.

The steel tape is not corrugated in the cable with 12 fibers below. If the corrugated steel tape is requested, it should be specified.
