Single Tube Ribbon Single Armor Cable is designed for Outside Plant (OSP) applications, specifically lashed aerial and underground duct installations. Our industry leading optical ribbons are manufactured with high dimensional precision and low planarity, which equates to low losses during mass fusion spicing. The Single Tube Ribbon Single Armor cable features optical ribbons inside a single PFM gel-filled tube. The core tube includes up to eighteen 12-fiber or 24-fiber ribbons. Each 12-fiber ribbon unit is discretely identified and captured in an easy peel matrix for ease of ribbon breakout and management. The core tube is wrapped with a water-blocking tape. A corrugated steel armor and longitudinal strength elements are applied over the core tube and encased within a black jacket. Rip cords are included under the armor for easy access to the core tube.
