Corning 24 Strand Singlemode Outdoor Armored Direct Burial Fiber Optic Cable - Black (Per Foot)

Reference#: 69127
Item#: COR-024ZUC-T4F22D20


Corning 024ZUC-T4F22D20 ALTOS Lite gel-free, single-jacket, single-armored 24 strand fiber cables with FastAccess® technology are designed for direct-buried installations. The innovative FastAccess technology feature combined with the gel-free loose tube design simplifies removal of the cable jacket and accessing the buffer tubes. The gel-free design means the cables are fully waterblocked using craft-friendly water-swellable materials which makes cable access simple and require no clean up. The loose tube design uses Corning's SMF-28® Ultra fiber to provide reliable transmission parameters for a variety of voice, data, video and imaging applications. The flexible buffer tubes are easy to route in closures, and the SZ-stranded, loose tube design isolates fibers from installation and environmental rigors while allowing easy midspan access. The single-armored construction provides additional crush and rodent protection. This Singlemode fiber optic cable has a medium-density polyethylene jacket that is rugged, durable and easy to strip.

ALTOS Lite FastAccess® Technology
Corning's ALTOS Lite FastAccess Technology refers to the combination of a Corning FastAccess Technology jacket with an innovative technology used to bind cable construction through the manufacturing process, eliminating the use of binder yarns and waterblocking tapes and up to a 60 percent improvement in cable access time. These technologies also reduce the overall risk of inadvertent fiber damage by reducing the need for sharp cable access tools.

Stranded optical core
Elimination of overlapping yarn binders around stranded tubes to reduce end access time

Fully waterblocked loose tube all-dielectric gel-free design
Simple access and no clean up

Single-armored construction
Provides additional crush and rodent protection

Polyethylene jacket
Rugged, durable and easy to strip (while providing superior protection against UV radiation, fungus, abrasion and other environmental factors)

Available with Corning's SMF-28® Ultra fiber
ITU-T G.652 D and ITU-T G.657 A1 compliant fiber ready for any application
