CABLE OPTICAL FIBRE 202 - BLOWN - EXTERNAL – NON-METALLIC SINGLE MODE - NON-PRESSURISED
These non-metallic cables are of loose tube construction containing 12 and 24 single mode fibres within a non-pressurised black polyethylene sheath.
This range of fibre cables is specifically designed for installation into sub-duct by the use of air blown techniques although in some circumstances the cables are suitable for installation over short distances by the use of direct pulling techniques with a rope or glass fibre pulling rod. These cables are of loose tube construction containing 12 and 24 single mode fibres constructed in units of 12 colour coded fibres within each water blocked tube. The required number of tubes plus dummy fillers as necessary are assembled helically in one layer around a non-metallic central strength member, the design being specially chosen to ensure that the cable is neutrally balanced along its central axis. The interstices contain dry water blocking before the application of a water blocking binder tape and black high density polyethylene sheath, two rip cords are inserted under the sheath to aid stripping and termination of the cable. The robust polyethylene sheath used by Tratos ensures outstanding pliability and protection.
Tratos has developed this cable to have the optimum balance of properties, toughness to withstand blowing or pulling into underground ducts combined with a smooth, low coefficient of friction, surface, to ease installation and prevent jamming.
The Step Index single-mode optical fibre (SMF) fibres used to manufacture these cables for BT meet or exceed the requirements for both Category 2 as specified in CW 1505 for systems operating in the wavelength range of 1250nm to 1625nm.
Tratos use Lucent OFS and Prysmian fibres to manufacture the Optical Fibre Cables supplied to BT.
These cables meet or exceed the requirements of CW 1807,
All of the polymeric materials used in the construction of cables for BT meet or exceed the requirements of BT Specification CW1500-7 and are RoSH compliant
