216 F ALTOS® Figure-8 Loose Tube, Gel-Free Armored Cable

216 F ALTOS® Figure-8 Loose Tube, Gel-Free Armored Cable

Corning ALTOS® figure-8 gel-free cables are self-supporting aerial cables designed for easy and economical one-step installation. The loose tube design provides stable performance over a wide temperature range and is compatible with any telecommunications-grade optical fiber. The gel-free design is fully waterblocked using craft-friendly water-swellable materials, making cable access simple and requiring no clean up. While the flexible, craft-friendly buffer tubes are easy to route in closures, the SZ-stranded, loose tube design isolates optical fibers from installation and environmental rigors and facilitates mid-span access.
The figure-8 cable design allows easy, one-step installation, using standard hardware and installation methods. These cables have a medium density polyethylene jacket that is rugged, durable and easy to strip.
This cable incorporates innovative waterblocking materials, eliminating the need for traditional flooding compound and providing efficient and craft-friendly cable preparation. While the concentric, self-supporting cable design allows easy, one-step installation using standard hardware and installation methods, the SZ-stranded, loose tube design isolates optical fibers from installation and environmental rigors and facilitates mid-span access. The ADSS optical cables are also available with a proprietary track-resistant polyethylene (TRPE) jacket suitable for installation in electric field potentials up to 25 kV.
