August 11, 2008--Fiber-optic solutions manufacturer OFS has enhanced the capabilities of its PowerGuide All-Dielectric Self-Supporting (ADSS) Optical Fiber Cable family, with increased fiber counts now available.
PowerGuide TTH Loose Tube Cable, designed for Fiber to the Home (FTTH) and short-span aerial applications, is now available in fiber counts up to 30 (with six fibers per buffer tube), while the cable's small outer diameter remains unchanged. The all-dielectric TTH cable can span up to 346 feet (105 meters) depending on loading and installation conditions.
In addition, PowerGuide ShortSpan Loose Tube Cable's maximum fiber count has been increased to 144. Available in custom configurations, this cable design is now able to span up to 1,150 feet (345 meters). Designed for distribution networks and duct installations, the PowerGuide ShortSpan Cable features a small round profile that can help reduce wind and ice loading.
