CommScope engineers are committed to offering evolutionary improvements and easy-to-handle constructions in their fiber product offerings. The latest example is our new Dry Loose Tube cable design. This family of gel-free stranded loose tube cables uses all-dry water blocking technology and reduced diameter buffer tubes. The design is completely gel-free, yet it provides full water blocking protection for outside plant applications. The Dry Loose Tube cables are an alternative to standard gel-filled loose tube cables, and meet the requirements of ANSI/ICEA S-87-640; Telcordia GR-20-CORE, issue 2; and EN 187105.
Dry Water Blocking Technology - Decreases cable prep time, eliminates need for potentially hazardous solvents, requires less consumable materials, improves the lifespan of equipment, and simplifies work site clean-up
Lightweight Cable Design - Improves ease of handling
Smaller Buffer Tubes - Easier routing inside the enclosure
Small Overall Cable Diameters - Maximizes tube space and improves reel capacity
