GAOTek ADSS Fiber Optic Outdoor Self-supporting Aerial Cable



GAOTek 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’s non-metallic structure makes it a good insulator which in turn helps in anti-thunder protection. The ADSS optical cable is also available with a proprietary track-resistant polyethylene (TRPE) jacket suitable for installation in electric field potentials up to 25 kV. It’s fine production technology and even force for Aramid fiber makes the cable superior in stress flexibility. The cable incorporates water blocking materials which eliminates the need for traditional flooding compound and provides efficient and craft-friendly cables. The cable has a small diameter and is light weight due to which it had lower load on the attached tower.


  • 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.
