Core Construction: Solid, annealed copper; size 24 AWG

Insulation: Color-coded in accordance with telephone industry standards

Twisted Pairs: Insulated conductors are twisted into pairs with varying lay lengths to minimize crosstalk

Core Assembly: 25 pairs and less: pairs are assembled together in a single group More than 25 pairs: pairs are arranged in groups, each group having a color coded unit binder

PE22 solid insulated unfilled telephone wire: PE22 ALPETH Outside Plant Cable is a solid insulated, single jacket air core design intended for above ground aerial installations. In this application the PE-22 cable can be attached to a support strand (messenger). ALPETH cable is not recommended for any buried or duct application, with or without air pressure.

PE89 Foam skin insulated filled telephone cable: PE89 Filled ALPETH Cable with foam skin insulation is a single jacket, filled design. Intended for direct burial underground applications. An ETPR compound completely coats each insulated conductor and fills the air space between conductors. The shielding and jacket combined with the filling and flooding compounds throughout the PE-89 cable provide exceptional durability and resistance to moisture. PE89 filled telephone cable is suitable for outdoor applications without the use of conduit. The cable is filled with water resistant jell and UV resistant. The conductors are 24awg and follow the industry standard color code for twisted pair cables. Direct burial telephone cable must not be run for more than 50ft inside buildings (per the National Electrical Code).

Core Wrap: Non-hygroscopic dielectric tape applied longitudinally with an overlap

Jacket: Black, linear low density polyethylene

Aluminum Shield: Corrugated, co-polymer coated, 0.008" aluminum tape applied longitudinally with an overlap

Compliance: Rural Development Utility Program(RDUP) 7 CFR 1755.890 (RUS PE-89)
