THE NEW LIGHT HEAVYWEIGHT
Microcables - compact and light but packing enhanced high-fibre density.
Lightweight enough for air-blown installation in the smallest ducts.
Fewer joints in installation; reduced resistance through ducting.
Built for the broadband revolution, Tratos’ Microcable compact and lightweight range contains a high-fibre density. The cable maximises the fibre count available in small diameter cable. Produced in stranded loose tube design in fibre counts from 144 to 192, with outer diameters ranging between 4.0 and 7.5mm, the 7.5mm Tratos Microcable incorporating 192 fibres is the smallest such cable in the world today.
Even with the maximum number of fibres incorporated, Tratos Microcable remains flexible (it has a minimum bending radius of 15 x outer diameter without tension) and lightweight enough for air-blown installation in very small ducts or sub ducts using Tratos Microduct. It requires fewer joints in installation, providing reduced resistance when passed through ducting. Ideal for installations where duct space is at a premium, it has the added benefit of being easy to handle and install. It also provides a simple, neat and commercially viable solution to upgrade a network at a later date as fibre is simply deployed as and when needed. Tratos Microcable can be used in operating temperatures of -30°C / +60ºC. It has been designed and manufactured to IEC 60794.
International Standards – IEC 60794
Note: This is an indicative range of Standards to which Tratos manufacture cables. Cables manufactured in accordance with other Standards are available on request.
