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.

Central Loose Tube Air Blown Micro Cable

Central Loose Tube Air Blown Micro Cable

Waveoptics® Central Loose Tube Air Blown Micro Cable all-dielectric design has a small outer diameter that makes it ideal for microduct applications, lowering deployment cost and allowing the usage of the air blown fiber method for installation.

PE single jacket with additives makes a resistant and durable, providing superior protection against UV radiation, fungus, abrasion and other environmental factors.

Optical Fibers are placed in photosensitive resin material for UV curing to create a core.
