Suspension clamps for figure-8 cables
Suspension or support clamp for figure-8 cable can be installed on short spans at intermediate poles.
Following optical fiber suspension accessories are made of UV resistant plastic, galvanized steel plates and hardware. This allows very easy in installation of optical fiber cable and attached to pole (concrete, wooden, metal) with suspension hook or stainless steel strap.
The messenger of optical fiber figure-8 cable is made of different materials: steel, FRP, Kevlar, AAC. Sizes of optical cables messengers can be also different. However, in spite of this, the unique design of fiber optical cable suspension clamp allow usage single model instead of variants. This achieved by two groove outers of plastic parts of accessory, this provide the usage with hook or stainless steel band during pole installation.
Fiber optic cable route can be straight or turning, with angles up to 25.
The metal plate of clamp allows installation of clamp on the pole by using stainless steel band and pigtail hook or brackets. Brackets, hooks and strapping are available either separately or together as assembly with suspension clamp.
All the assemblies passed the tensile tests, operation experience with temperatures ranging from – 60 °C up to +60 °C test, temperature cycling test, aging test, corrosion resistance test etc.
