Self-supported ASU Fiber Optic Cable (2-12F)

G.652D Aerial Self-Supported ASU Fiber Optic Cable has a loose tube structure and water-resistant gel compound to provide crucial protection for the fiber. Over the tube, water-blocking material is applied to keep the cable watertight. Two parallel fiber reinforced plastic (FRP) elements are placed on the two sides. The cable is covered with a single PE outer sheath. It is especially suitable for installation in aerial for long-distance communication

Structure: Single loose tube construction, jelly compound filled, then PE outer sheath with two non-metallic strength members combined.

Fiber Count: 2-12 Core;

Span: 80m or 120m;
