Cleerline SSF™ fiber, micro distribution Aluminum Interlocking Armored cable consists of either a Riser or Plenum overall jacket with 2-72 fibers and water blocking kevlar yarns.
Applications include: installations requiring high crush resistance.
Cleerline SSF™ Micro Distribution Aluminum Interlocking Armored cable is designed to protect the encased fibers. The cable’s spirally-wrapped internal aluminum strip provides high crush resistance, as well as helping to prevent damage from rodents and rugged environments. This cable’s construction also allows easy termination, as it can be installed without inner duct or conduit.
Features And Benefits:
High mechanical strength and superior fatigue & durability
Integral coating eliminates stripping, provides glass protection
Up to 10,000x the bend longevity of traditional fibers
Increased safety factor due to the incredible bend insensitivity
Glass fiber remains protected at all times from the elements
Simplified termination process designed for ease of use
To terminate SSF™ AIA cable, it is necessary to remove the interlocking armor. The recommended steps to carry out this procedure our demonstrated in our instruction video. For more information on terminating Cleerline SSF™ fiber, please see the instructional videos and documents in our Resources section, linked below.
Terminating Cleerline SSF™ fiber may also require a height adjustment to the cleaver being used. Cleaver Height Adjustment steps are also available under the Resources link below.
