1) Designs with more than 12 fibers per tube will use the standard color code and binders for identification of the fibers. 2) Designs with mixed fiber types will have multimode or NZDS fibers in the first tube(s) followed by single-mode fibers in the last tube(s).

Quick Reference Installation Notes
Approximate Cable Diameter Maximum Stringing Tension (at tensioner)* Minimum Bull Wheel Diameter Stringing Sheave Diameter** Minimum Bending Radius Cable Static (No load) Dynamic (under tension) Fiber After Installation (Static) Plastic Buffer Tube After Installation (Static) 8 cm 3 in 17 cm 33 cm 3.8 cm 7 in 13 in 1.5 in 16.10 mm 549 kg 113 cm 65 cm 0.634 in 1,211 lbs 45 in 26 in

* - The stringing tension is always measured at the tensioner side. In general the maximum stringing tension should be a half of the maximum sagging tension and never should exceed 20% RBS of the ADSS Cable. ** - The value indicated is for the first and last structures of the pull and is based on 40 times the diameter of the ADSS cable. Smaller diameters can be used at tangent structures. Reference AFL's installation instructions for more details. Reference AFL's "Recommended Installation Procedures for All-Dielectric, Self-Supporting (ADSS) Fiber Optic Cable" for detailed installation instructions.

FL - Flange Diameter; TR - Inside Traverse Width; DR - Drum Diameter; OW - Outside Overall Width Arbor Hole Diameter: Wood: 3-1/8in (7.9cm) Steel: 3in (7.6cm) Maximum lengths shown are the longest lengths that AFL offers. Longer lengths may be possible. Ordered lengths should include a distribution of lengths, i.e., all reels cannot be ordered at the maximum. A typical reel length distribution is as follows: 6000m 7000m ~ 15% of reels 4500m 6000m ~ 55% of reels 2500m 4500m ~ 25% of reels <2500m ~ 5% of reels Wood reels with flex-wrap covering are standard. Non-returnable steel reels and/or wood lagging are available upon request. Additional reel sizes may be available upon request. Steel reels are recommended for long term storage. Reference AFL's "Fiber Optic Cable Receiving, Handling and Storage" document for additional information.
