Corning ALTOS All-Dielectric Cables - Gel Free
ALTOS All-Dielectric Loose Tube Cables manufactured by Corning Cable Systems are lightweight cables used for outdoor aerial and duct (lashed) installations. The loose tube design is compatible with any telecommunications optical grade fiber and provides stable performance over a wide temperature range (-40 to +178 °F). Corning Altos all-dielectric fiber optic cable is specified in government approvals for projects as one of the few cables to list with RUS 1755.900, and also meets ICEA-640 and Telcordia GR-20.
- Meets industry standards including ICEA-640 and Telcordia GR-20, and is listed with RUS 1755.900 (PE 90)
- Available in multi-mode (62.5/125µm and 50/125µm) and single-mode
- 3mm buffer tubes are flexible and route easily in splice closures
- Construction consists of a maximum of 12 fibers per buffer tube
- The standard buffer size reduces the number of access tools required by the installer
- Altos cables provide a unique water blocking design with water-swellable tape that eliminates the need for flooding compound and provides for simple cable preparation
- S-Z stranded, loose tube fiber design isolates fibers from installation and environmental rigors and facilitates mid-span access
- Dielectric strength members have no preferential bend and require no bonding or grounding
- Up to 75 feet of buffer cable can be stored in splice closures and pedestals providing flexibility for mid span access
- Tensile strength is 600 lbs
- Medium density PE jacket (black in color) is rugged, durable and easy to strip
- UV resistant
- One year manufacturer warranty
