The Loose Tube Mini Cable ‘Slim’ Polyamide (LTMC-S PA) is a non-metallic, longitudinal water-protected fibre optic cable, with smallest possible outer diameter and optimized fibre density (in case of applying 200µm fibres). With its low weight and reduced diameter, in combination with a low friction polyamide outer-sheath, this cable is the perfect solution for situations where blowing of mini-cable over long distances in shortest possible time slot is needed. This cable is extremely suitable for Access or FTTx applications, where high fibre-count cables in smallest tube-diameter are required. Installation: blowing into mini-ducts.
