IM/F, IM/H and IM/G aerial service wire in 2, 3, 6 and 12-pair is self
supporting. The conductors are laid parallel to an (F) 0.083 inch, (H)
0.109 inch, or (G) 0.095 inch solid extra-strength steel support wire.
Both the conductors and support wire are jacketed in an integral “figure
8” configuration. This product permits fast, economical installation
from aerial distribution cable terminals to building entrance protectors
or network interface units on the subscriber’s premises. The fully
color coded core expedites splicing and terminating procedures. A
black, fire retardant, polyvinyl chloride jacket provides a tough flexible
protective covering that withstands exposure to sunlight, atmospheric
temperatures and stresses encountered in standard installations. The
steel support wire is jacketed in an integral extrusion with the core.
