AFL Flex-Span ADSS Fibre Optic Cable

Thursday, 01 August, 2019 | Supplied by: AFL Telecommunications Pty Ltd



Flex-Span ADSS fibre-optic cable expands on AFL’s single-jacket ADSS portfolio. Flex-Span designs are optimised for a broader combination of fibre counts and span lengths, providing ADSS system designers more flexibility in their product selection.

Flex-Span’s core configuration contains five buffer tubes with 24 fibres each, for a total of 120 fibres. This allows higher fibre counts in a small diameter (<0.475″) while still maintaining the span length capability. A smaller diameter can lead to less loading on the poles while also providing the same hardware size.

Flex-Span ADSS requires no support or messenger wire so installation is achieved in a single pass. The cable is suitable for use on distribution lines and necessitates using formed wire dead ends. Flex-Span utilises dry core technology and, as a result, messy flooding compounds are not used.

Fibre counts for Flex-Span ADSS are 12 up to 144 with any type or combination of singlemode or multimode fibres within the cable. Operating temperature spans from 40 to +70˚C. Pole-to-pole span lengths range from 15 m to over 305 m.
