3.0×5.4mm fig 8 type Self-supporting Aerial FTTH Drop cable patch cord

Share to:


It’s a kind of patch cord/Pigtail which assembly with 3.0×5.4mm fig 8 high tensile FTTH Drop Cable with LSZH Jacket. With easy accessibility to the fiber and simple installation, The FIG 8 FTTH Drop cable can be directly connected to the homes. This is a last cable in  FTTH project. Used widely between Fact plate, terminal box between ONU/ONT.


Cable structure

3.0×5.4mm fig 8 Type FTTH Drop Cable with LSZH Jacket use Simplex round structure, A 900um tight buffer placed inside the cable. Then the cable is completed  with Aramid yarn and LSZH sheath. A Solid steel message wire or stranded steel wire joint in as supporting wire for Aerial installation.  With small diameter, water-resistant, soft and bendable characteristics, it’s easy to deploy and maintenance in FTTX project.
