The ADSS fiber optic cable uses all-dielectric materials because the fiber cable is applied in a high-voltage strong current environment and must be able to withstand the influence of strong electricity. Since it is used overhead on a power tower, ADSS fittings must be used to fix the ADSS cable on the tower.
All-dielectric self-supporting ADSS optical cable (All Dielectric Self Supporting) provides a fast and economical transmission channel for power communication systems due to its unique structure, good insulation and high-temperature resistance, and high tensile strength. The double jacket ADSS fiber cable has an extra layer of the jacket, which improved compressive strength, it also is in a stranded structure design, the inner optical fibers and water-blocking grease are added into the fiber loose tube, and different loose tubes are wound around the central reinforcement (usually FRP).
The Fiber Cores of ADSS Fiber Cable is 2-288Cores
Specially designed for power systems, it is a self-supporting aerial optical cable with a full insulation medium. Aramid Yarn is an important part of fiber optic cable for tensile resistance. They provide tensile strength to the finished cable assembly (they are crimped to the connector body so that any pull stress applied to the cable after it is connectorized will be taken by the aramid yarn, and not the fiber itself. ADSS optical cable has a wide temperature adaptability range and a small linear expansion coefficient, which meets the requirements of harsh environments.
This ADSS fiber optic cable type is aimed to be used for voice, data, broadband and CATV transmission in Long Distance, Backbone and Local Area Networks with Aerial installation method. The special design of ADSS fiber cable suitable for installation on Power Transmission Lines and nearby Power Utilities.

All-dielectric self-supporting (ADSS) cable is a type of optical fiber cable that is strong enough to support itself between structures without using conductive metal elements.
UnitekFiber can supply ADSS fiber optic cable with 100-800 meter pole span.
Dielectric means it has non-conducting properties of a non-metallic, insulating material that resists the passage of electric current.
ADSS cables should be placed in Aerial and duct, but can not be direct-buried.
