The armored fiber optic cable, also named direct burial fiber optic cable, is a kind of optical cable has the armor made of steel strip or steel wire outside. When using, it is directly buried underground, so it requires the capability of resisting external mechanical damage and preventing soil corrosion. Armored layer stranded fiber optic cable includes GYTA53 and GYTY53 series, the two has the same structures, the difference is the material of the inner sheath in the cable. In the GYTA53 cable, it is metal inner sheath and in the GYTY53 cable is nonmetal inner sheath.
What's the difference between the GYTA53 optical cable and GYTY53 optical cable?
The GYTA53 optical cable is heavier than the GYTY53 optical cable as it has a metal inner sheath, so it has a better compression performance, but its bending performance is not as good as the GYTY53 optical cable.
Is the armored fiber optic cable waterproof and moisture-proof?
Yes, it is waterproof and moisture-proof, it also resist from termites and rodents.
Is the armored fiber optic cable suitable for HDPE pipe-piercing?
Yes, it is suitable for HDPE pipe-piercing, and we can promise a 40years service life.
