Made by Corning, this figure-8 self-supporting fiber multimode optic cable is easy to install and work with and can handle a wide range of temperatures. This popular Altos figure-8 cable employs a craft-friendly, gel-free design with water-swellable materials to make cable access simple, with no cleanup.
Buffer tubes are flexible and easy to route in closures, while the SZ-stranded, loose-tube design protects optical fibers from installation and environmental hazards and eases mid-span access. These black cables come with medium-density, polyethylene jackets that are rugged, durable and easy to strip. Each cable has a steel messenger.
Figure-8 fiber optic cable installation is fast, easy and economical for outdoor applications, including building-to-building and other aerial applications. These gel-free cables feature easy one-step installation and require no messy cleanup. Loose-tube design makes them appropriate across a wide temperature range, and they are compatible with any telecommunications-grade optical fiber. We carry a variety of these premium Corning cables, including 6-strand, 12-strand and 24-strand.
These cables typically ship within four or five business days of your order.
We sell these cables by the foot, meaning you buy only what you need, with no waste. As you would expect from a company with a name like Discount Low Voltage, aerial fiber cost per foot is extremely reasonable when you shop online here.
Corning data sheets and installation instructions are available for download on the product pages. We also include complete written descriptions there along with a video by Mercy Salinas showing you the finer points of this very popular cable.
