L-3/Loose Tube Wire Armored Cable

Optical fibers are protected in loose tubes filled with Thixotropic jelly. These loose tubes are stranded around a central strength member. The cable core is water proof with water blocking compound. The steel wire armor further protected by outer sheath provide excellent mechanical performance with high tensile and crush resistance properties.
