Armoured PE Loose Tube Cable FLTAPSP
The FLTAPSP is an armoured loose tube cable consists of 6 tubes that are filled with water blocking gel. To protect the optical fibers from any water penetration, the cable construction utilizes a layer of aluminium tape which serves as the moisture barrier, steel wire armouring, inner and outer PE jackets. The steel wire armouring also protects the cable from rodent attack and provides mechanical protection.
Number of optical fibers supported
The gel-filled loose tube of the FLTAPSP cable can be filled with a maximum of 6 to 12 optical fibers. The cable can support up to 72 optical fibers in total.
Type of optical fibers supported
Both single-mode and multimode optical fiber types are supported. For the single-mode optical fiber, the G.652D is one of the most commonly used. As for the multimode optical fiber, OM1 and OM2 are the two most common multimode optical fibers being deployed.
