DAC

The Direct Access Cable (DAC) is a light-weight, non-metallic, central tube direct-buried 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. Also blowable in (mini)tubes over a limited distance.
