Hitachi Cable America

Loose Tube Cables

Outdoor Loose Tube fiber optic cable is RDUP approved (singlemode) and all designs are RoHS 2 and REACH compliant. All multimode and singlemode cables (except OM1) utilize bend-insensitive optical fibers and has gel filled loose tubes to provide protection against water penetration and dry, super absorbent polymers (SAPs) to eliminate water migration in cable interstices. Suitable for lashed aerial, duct, underground conduit environments. Supported applications include gigabit, 10 gigabit and 40 gigabit Ethernet. Made in USA. Hitachi Cable America is proud to utilize Corning Optical Fiber as our standard optic fiber.
