Swift Test Kits

Fiber Drop Cable

UCL Swift’s FTTH Drop cable offers all the desirable features you would want in an FTTH drop cable. The all-dielectric cable utilizes two non-metallic strength members to permit reliable self-support from the pole to the structure. The gel-free inner tube incorporates water-blocking aramid yarns to protect the optical fibers within. Offered in one or two optical fiber strand designs, UCL Swift’s FTTH cable’s robust UV-resistant HDPE jacket withstands the harshest of environments. The optional toning conductor is available for direct bury or underground conduit applications. When the FTTH cable is used with UCL Swift’s HDC field-installable, hardened fusion splice-on fiber optic connector, you get an easy-to-install solution that will deliver long-term, reliable performance. Field termination of FTTH drop cables allows exact length runs without wasteful, unsightly slack storage coils on the pole or at the structure.
  • Rugged design ideal for outdoor environments
  • Compact cable construction
  • All-Dielectric cable eliminates the need for bonding or grounding requirements
  • Optional toning conductor makes for easy detection and underground installation
  • Offers exceptional crush resistance

PACKING

  • 1000ft, 2000ft or other cable length is also available if requested by customer.
  • Each length of the cable will be wound on a wooden or plywood reel.
  • The cable ends will be securely fastened to the reel to prevent the cable from loosening in transit or during operations.
  • A suitable plastic tape will be laid on the cable to prevent moisture during shipping, handling and storage.

LABELING

The label information on the reel will match the following:

  • Cable type and fiber counts
  • Length of cable in meter or feet
  • Gross weight in kilograms
  • Reel number
  • Year of manufacture
