Superior Essex Announces Expansion of Series HZA and Series HZD Stranded Loose Tube Fiber Cables
Atlanta, GA, October 09, 2014
Superior Essex announces the expansion of their loose tube fiber cables, Series HZA and HZD, which will now include 72-fiber, 96-fiber, and 144-fiber configurations. Series HZA and HZD cables are designated low smoke zero halogen (LSZH), making them ideal for indoor/outdoor applications such as campus environments, tunnels and subway passages. These cables comply with NFPA-130, UL 1666 and are rated OFNR-LS.
Both Series HZA and HZD feature rugged, loose tube designs with optical fibers placed inside gel-free buffer tubes and stranded around a central core using a reverse oscillating lay. The fibers are wrapped with flexible strength members, covered with a heat-resistant, water-blocking tape, and encased with a black, flame and sunlight-resistant jacket. Series HZA also features corrugated steel armor placed beneath the jacket for additional protection from physical stress. A rip cord is included under the jacket for ease of entry.
These dual purpose cables save money and installation time by allowing a direct transition from indoor to outdoor applications with a single cable. Because these cables are fully water blocked with dry elements, stripping and termination is faster, resulting in further savings on installation costs. These cables comply with the standards for both Outside Plant (OSP) and indoor riser applications. The loose tube design offersreliable transmission performance over a broad temperature range.
