A comprehensive portfolio of compact E-Series central tube cables with increased tensile strength is now available. Smaller tube diameters mean cable diameters for 24-fibre central tubes are also reduced. More compact designs will lead to cost saving for network channels.
Pulling strength of metallic armoured central tube designs in the E-Series has been increased from 1,000 N to 3,000 N, and from 1,500 N to 3,000 N for non-metallic cable types. Thanks to the higher tensile strength, users benefit from an extended lifetime of the cabled fibres.
Draka central tube cables now meet TIA GR20 & ICEA 640 & ICEA 696 standards as well as European EN 50173-1 and international ISO 11801-1 and IEC 60794-1 standards. Improved robustness and compactness at the same cost delivers significant investment benefits to end-users.
