AFL Flex-Span All-Dielectric Self-Supporting (ADSS) cable is designed for aerial distribution power lines, as well as underground duct applications. As its name indicates, there are no metallic components and the cable does not require a support or messenger wire. Flex-Span ADSS cables are a single jacket design intended for the shorter pole-to-pole span lengths in a distribution environment. A broad combination of fiber counts and spans lengths in this product family provide network designers with flexibility in their cable selection.
