Air Blown Micro Cable

Waveoptics® Air Blown Micro Cable all-dielectric design with a small outer diameter, makes it ideal for microduct applications, lowering deployment cost, allowing the usage of the air blown fiber method for installation. Designed for microducts with an inner diameter ranging from 8 mm to 16 mm, according to the fiber count.

The SZ-stranded method for loose tube sand one ripcord ensure a quick and easy mid-span access.

Dielectric central strength member requires no bonding or grounding.

Internal and external water blocking yarn sand water blocking aramid yarn used as binder, providing protection against water penetration and adding tensile strength.
