Product Description

The OFS Fortex™ DT Light Armor Loose Tube Cable delivers the rugged durability and reliability essential for outside plant (OSP) use in an innovative, completely gel-free cable design.

To construct this cable, the optical fibers are placed in space-efficient, 2.5 mm buffer tubes that contain a specially-engineered, super-absorbent yarn that delivers water blocking “on demand”. The color-coded buffer tubes are then stranded around a dielectric central member using the reverse oscillating lay (ROL) stranding technique for easy, mid-span fiber access. Additional gel-free, super-absorbent material is applied to the cable core for exceptional water-blocking performance and faster cable preparation. A layer of corrugated electrolytically chrome-coated steel (ECCS) armor is then applied lengthwise over the cable core to provide rugged durability. Finally, a ripcord and a durable polyethylene (PE) jacket are added to complete the cable construction
