DRAKA A-DQ(ZN)B2Y 12SM - 2km spool
Key features
  • outdoor cable with high UV resistance
  • can be deployed in telecommunication ducts or directly in the ground
  • easy to pull - the sheath reduces friction
  • high streth resistance - 3000 N
  • gel-filled central tube (2.8 mm)
  • 12 single-mode G.652D 9/125 μm fibers
  • reinforced with aramid yarn to ensure basic anti-rodent protection
  • LLDPE (linear low-density polyethylene) sheath
  • fibers in 250 μm tight buffer
  • CPR class: Fca
DRAKA A-DQ(ZN)B2Y 12SM is a fiber-optic cable for outdoor applications. Single-mode fibers are contained in a central gel-filled tube. The gel in the tube is a kind of protective coating for optical fibers, which absorbs mechanical stresses and protects against environmental factors. The aramid yarn is designed to protect the central tube and optical fibers from mechanical damage, including risks posed by rodents.
This outdoor cable can be:
  • buried directly in the ground, but it should be additionally protected with a pipe
  • placed on the roof of a building (UV-resistant coating)
  • used for overhead links (for sections longer than 10 meters it is recommended to use a suspension wire)
