This group of products is characterized by buffered fibers.
Central loose tube cables are designed either for indoor/outdoor application or outdoor use only as direct burial, duct and outside tray. For better performance, Belden® only uses (non-dripping and silicone-free) jelly-filled loose tubes. The central loose tube series has a polyethylene or halogen-free jacket. These cables have been updated with a longitudinal watertightness swellable yarn for weather resistance.
Multi loose tube cables, with no aquagel between the tubes (dry core) or with jelly-filled cable core, are designed for direct burial, duct, outside tray and aerial applications. For better performance, Belden only uses (non dripping and silicone-free) jelly-filled loose tubes. Tubes and (when necessary) blind elements are S-Z stranded around the central element. The multi loose tube series has a High-Density-Polyethylene (HDPE) or halogen-free jacket. These cables have been updated with waterblocking aramid or glass yarn. Standard and improved rodent protection designs are available with high fiber counts up to 216 fibers.
