Keywords: Figure 8 fiber cable; Outdoor central tube fiber cable; Self-supporting Fiber Cable;Aerial Fiber Optic Cable


The development of the industry promotes the advancement of technology, new fiber optic cable structures are constantly appearing, and manufacturing technology has also been optimized and improved. With the implementation of fiber-to-the-home projects, fiber optic cable trunks to branch branches, and branches branch to users, various uses require a variety of fiber optic cable structures. Major operators have put forward new requirements for optical cable products:

1. Try to reduce construction and infrastructure costs, and reduce the cost of optical fiber cable laying;

2. Shorten the construction time of optical fiber cables.

This kind of figure-8 optical fiber cable can be laid overhead at one time, which greatly saves the construction cost and time of the optical cable. Especially the small figure-8 optical cable has a large application space in areas with sparsely populated and scattered residences.

The Structural Features of GYXTC8Y Self-supporting Figure 8 Fiber Cable

What is Figure 8 Fiber Optical Cable GYXTC8Y

The GYXTC8Y optical fiber cable is a figure-eight self-supporting structure. The cable core is a single bundle tube, which is directly covered with PE material. Among them, the suspension wire part adopts galvanized steel wire to ensure that the reinforcement is not exposed to corrosion at the point of unlimited span, and a longitudinal water blocking yarn is placed on the cable core part to ensure that each section of the optical cable is impermeable. The optical fiber cable has compact structure, light weight, small geometric size, and is convenient for construction and maintenance.

Simulated construction on site

The most difficult thing to control the GYXTC8Y optical fiber cable is its post-shrinkage performance during fiber cabling installation. If the post-shrinkage is large, after the fiber optic cable is routed, the fibers are easily broken at various points and joints. Therefore, we conducted on-site simulation construction according to the customer's construction cabling method. The span is 50 meters, the length of the test optical cable is 260 meters, and there is a support point every 50 meters. After the optical cable cabling is completed, the two ends are looped and fixed. Then the end of the optical fiber cable is stripped, the length of the optical fiber is recorded, and the comparison is performed every 12 hours.

After 72 hours of outdoor simulation construction, the optical cable shrinks less than one thousandth. The test data shows that the GYXTC8Y optical cable has undergone many process improvements and fully meets customer requirements.

UnitekFiber produces optical fiber indoor/outdoor cables, optical patch panels, fiber cable assembles etc. At the same time, it also produces optical transceiver modules, which can provide With different package types, transmission distance and transmission rate, it also has the characteristics of stable performance and strong compatibility.
