Figure 8 cable is used for aerial and pole installation. FOCC supplies figure 8 cables with extra protection against rodents or shotguns, coming with different span lengths and handling several hundred fibers. There are mainly three types of figure 8 fiber optic cables as following.
GYTC8A Figure 8 Cable
The fibers are positioned in a loose tube made of a high modulus plastics. The tubes are filled with a water-resistant filling compound. A steel wire locates in the center of core as a metallic strength member. The tubes (and fillers) are stranded around the strength member into a compact and circular cable core. After an Aluminum Polyethylene Laminate (APL) moisture barrier is applied around the cable core, this part of cable accompanied with the stranded wires as the supporting part are completed with a polyethylene(PE) sheath to be figure 8 structure.
GYXTC8Y Figure 8 Cable
GYXTC8Y Figure 8 Cable features 2-24 fibers, jelly filled, fiber contained central loose tube, armored by a layer of copolymer coated steel wire, water blocking tape, PE outer sheath, figure 8 type, the suspension line (1.2×3=3.6mm), 7 steel wires stranded together. G652D SM fiber, detailed specification on your request.
GYXTC8S Figure 8 Cable
GYXTC8S Figure 8 Cable features the centrally situated loose tube with good excess length and minimize the influence of lateral crush. The water resistant tape provides water tight property. Corrugated steel tape armor and the PE outer sheath of GYXTC8S fiber optic cable provide crush resistance and gun shot resistance. The cross section shows figure 8. Stranded wires as self supporting member providing excellent strain performance and convenient installation for this GYXTC8S fiber cable.
