Datwyler’s 12x24 loose-tube fiber cable is optimized for blowing into microducts.

Datwyler Cabling Solutions recently added a fiber cable with 288 singlemode fibers (G.652.D) to its FO Outdoor wbKT S-Micro fiber-optic cable family. The 12x24 stranded loose tube cable is ideally suited for fiber-to-the-x (FTTx) networks. It is 10.4 millimeters in diameter.

“This is an ideal size for blowing into microducts of 12 mm or more internal diameter,” the company said.

“The compact, non-metallic cable with its dry interstices makes for a design which is easy to install and remove,” Datwyler continued. “Users also benefit from its outstanding attenuation figures—0.21 dB/km at 1550 nm, for example—and good mechanical properties which are reflected in an increased tensile strength (2900 N) and very long blowing distances.”

Datwyler Cabling Solutions is an internationally operating supplier of products, system solutions and services for electrical and communications infrastructures.
