Key features:
  • cable for outdoor applications highly UV resistant
  • can be buried in cable ducts or directly in the ground
  • easy to draw (slippery coating)
  • high tensile strength: 3000 N
  • gel-filled central tube (2.8 mm)
  • 8 multimode OM2 50/125 μm fibers
  • reinforced by aramid yarn for protection against rodents
  • LLDPE (linear low-density polyethylene) sheath
  • fibers in 250 μm tight buffer
  • CPR class: Fca
DRAKA A-DQ(ZN)B2Y 8MM is a fiber-optic cable for outdoor applications, with eight multimode 250 μm fibers in a central gel-filled tube. The gel is a kind of protective coating, which absorbs mechanical stresses and protects optical fibers against environmental factors. The aramid yarn around the tube is designd to ensure protection against mechanical damage, including risks posed by rodents.
This outdoor cable can be:
  • buried directly in the ground (resistance to moisture and rodents)
  • placed on the roof of a building (UV-resistant coating)
  • used for overhead links (for sections longer than 10 meters, a suspension wire should be used)
