PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Metallic Aerial Self-Supporting (MASS) Cable is an alternative solution used for installing optical cable on medium and high voltage power lines. It is typically used when the existing phase or ground wire replacement is not possible or economical. MASS cable is a compact, light-weight solution with no electrical function, designed to provide a telecommunications path without interfering with the existing power lines or infrastructure. Its small size helps minimize loading on towers and poles yet it is completely self-supporting to meet sag and tension requirements. It is typically installed in “under build” applications beneath the live phases.
