Product Description

The LMHD-Series OSP MicroCore is small-diameter loose tube fiber optic cable. Its small-size, thick-walled sheath and 600 lb. load-rating makes this cable highly versatile for use in most OSP cable installations. The design consists of stranded buffer tubes, aramid and fiberglass strength elements, and a thick-walled, UV-resistant outer jacket. These cables can be jetted or pulled into standard HDPE ducts and, because of their small diameters, can be jetted into popular bundled micro-duct pathways. Minimum pathway inside-diameters range from 13 mm to 20 mm. When the application requires a transition from underground to aerial, the LMHD-Series cables can be lashed to aerial messenger wires using standard OSP cable lashing equipment and techniques. The LMHD-Series OSP MicroCore fiber optic cables are available in 12 fibers up to 432 fibers.
