The Direct Access Cable Metallic (DAC MT) is a direct-buried metallic Central Tube Cable, with tracking-wire for detection of the cable in the ground. Light-weight, metallic, central tube directburied Access cable with low bend radius, no waterpeak G.657.A1 fibres, with small diameter for easy installation, longitudinally water-protected. This cable has a very high crush resistance and tensile strenght, is fast strippable (over >4 meter in one stroke). Due to extra strenght-members in the cable outersheath, this central tube design has an improved temperature range. Installation: direct burial application.
