PowerGuide® TTH Drop Cable

The OFS PowerGuide® TTH All-Dielectric Self-Supporting (ADSS) Loose Tube Fiber Optic Cable offers an excellent choice for short aerial cable spans ranging up to 300 feet (91 meters).

This cable’s compact size, low-cost installation, and specialized design make it an ideal, cost-effective cabling solution for duct, FTTx, and short-span, self-supporting aerial drop applications.

To construct this cable, one to four optical fibers are placed within color-coded, gel-filled buffer tubes to protect the fibers from mechanical and environmental forces – creating a stress-free operating environment within the cable’s designated load and temperature rating. Next, the buffer tubes are stranded around a dielectric central member using the reverse oscillating lay (ROL) stranding method to enable fast, mid-span cable entry. DryBlock® water-blocking material and dielectric strength elements are then applied to the cable core. Finally, a durable outer polyethylene jacket completes the cable construction.

Features and Benefits:

  • · Excellent, cost-effective alternative for short aerial cable spans and FTTx applications
  • · Lightweight and easy to handle and install for duct and aerial use
  • · Single, durable polyethylene jacket for fast and convenient cable preparation
  • · Fiber counts up to 20
  • · Small nominal cable diameter and bend radius for easy deployment in aerial-to-underground installations
  • · All-dielectric construction with a maximum of four fibers per buffer tube
  • · RDUP (formerly RUS) listed
  • · Available with AllWave® ZWP Single-Mode Fiber, TrueWave® LWP Single-Mode Fiber, and Multimode Fibers.
