GAOTek ADSS Fiber Optic Outdoor Self-supporting Aerial Cable FBC-104

This ADSS Fiber Optic Outdoor Self-supporting Aerial Cable is designed for easy and economical installation in campus backbones or LANs with self-supporting installations where metallic messengers cannot be used.



  • The cable supports tension strength over 90 KN.
  • Supports electric trace resistant outer sheath to run safely under a circumstance of space electric field (E) <=25 KV/m.
  • The cables can adapt easily in any type of bad weather conditions.
  • Supports loose cover GYTA cable core; non-metallic core can be reinforced.
  • A power line failure doesn’t influence the cable’s normal transfer.
  • The cable supports a small cable diameter which makes it light weight.
  • Supports up to 4921.26 ft. (1500 m) span and has low attached load on the tower.
  • Supports aramid fiber which makes the cable a good insulator.
  • Supports anti-thunder and anti-gun fire characteristics.
