Fiber-optic cable OKB for direct burial installation armoured by galvanized steel wires.
OKB cable is designed for installation into grounds of 1-5 groups (depends on cable construction), cable ducts, tunnels in case of high requirements of crush strength. OKB from flame retardant materials is designed for installation according to exclusive standards of fire safety.
Loose tube cable. Central strength member is made of fiber reinforced plastic (FRP).Polymer tubes and plastic fillers are SZ-stranded around central strength member. Optical fibers are placed inside polymer tubes. Interstice inside and between tubes is filled with hydrophobic filler. Cable core is wrapped by yarns. PET-tape is imposed on the cable core. An armour from galvanized steel wires is formed around single jacketed cable with an additional jacket of high density polyethylene extruded over the armour. Interstice between inner jacket and armour is filled with hydrophobic filler. In case of exclusive standards of fire safety, cable jacket is made of flame retardant halogen free (HF) compound.
