All Dielectric Self Supporting Fibre Cable(ADSS)

ADSS fiber optic cable is also called non-metallic all-dielectric self-supporting fiber optic cable.

ADSS cable's full name is All Dielectric Self Supporting Cable, which is also called non-metallic all-dielectric self-supporting fiber optic cable. 

It is widely used in power communication systems for its advantages of large fiber core number, lightweight, no metal (all-medium), and can be set up with power lines and towers, generally without power outage construction.

The cable is a composite fiber optic cable made by winding the fiber bundle around the central reinforcement, and then protected by insulation, waterproofing, reinforcement, sheathing, and other protective measures.

ZMS ADSS fiber optic cable has the characteristics of full dielectric, metal-free, non-conductive, small cable diameter, high tensile strength, low coefficient of linear expansion, wide temperature adaptability, etc.

And applications for fiber optic cables range from carrying telephones (each cable can carry millions of calls) to high-speed data transmission in huge computer networks.

Fiber Optic Cable Composition

Fiber optic cables consist of glass wires, each capable of transmitting digital data modulated into light waves.

They effectively send information encoded in a beam of light through a glass or plastic tube.

A key advantage of fiber optic cables over metal conductor cables is their superior performance in terms of bandwidth, and therefore data transmission performance.

Fiber optic cables are typically lighter and less susceptible to electromagnetic interference, but optical fibers tend to be more fragile than cables with metallic conductors.

ADSS Optical Cable Characteristics

ADSS overhead fiber optic cable is a kind of combined fiber optic cable made by winding fiber bundles around the central strength member, after insulation, waterproofing, reinforcement, sheathing, and other protective measures.

The cable is mainly installed in the existing 220kV and below power line upper layer or central tube design.

The outer sheath can be divided into PE and tracking resistance PE to correspond to the space potential below and above 12kV.

1. The cable diameter is small, the weight is light, the span can reach 1500M, and the additional load on the tower is low.

2. High tensile strength, which can exceed 90KN.

3. Non-metal structure, good insulation performance, lightning protection.

4. Sophisticated production technology, imported aramid yarn is uniformly stressed and has excellent stress-strain performance.

5. Optional PE/AT sheath, the best anti-corrosion performance.

6. It can adapt to harsh climatic conditions, and the icing can reach 10mm.

7. It can be constructed without power failure, and the power line failure does not affect the normal transmission of the optical cable.

Optical Fibre and Fibre Cable Selection

The first step is to understand that the type of fiber is determined by the application, the distance the signal needs to be transmitted, and the transmission speed.

Secondly, the construction of the cable is selected based on the installation environment and requirements, which range from the need for low smoke zero halogens (LSZH) materials within drywall in indoor public areas to trackside in outdoor

railroad networks.

All of our fiber optic cables can also be supplied to you upon request with fire-resistant IEC 60331 standards if you need them for critical applications or locations.

ZMS Cable has over a decade of experience in the specification and various areas of fiber optic cables.

Our technical engineers on the production floor are also available to collaborate and communicate with our customers in order to develop and customize new cable constructions for optimal performance and to bring maximum cable utilization to

our customers.

If you have a fiber optic cable ordering need, please contact us to discuss your application and specific project requirements.

Strain Clamp

Application: ADSS pre-twisted wire strain clamp is mainly used for fixing and anchoring aerial self-supporting ADSS optical cable lines. It is usually installed in terminal towers, tensioning towers, corner towers, etc.

Composition: Each set of pre-twisted wire strain clamp assembly includes: inner twisted wire, outer twisted wire, and pull ring. Users can configure and choose other connectors according to design requirements.

Features: The grip strength of the pre-twisted wire strain clamp on the cable can reach more than 95% of the ultimate tensile strength (R.T.S) of the cable, without the influence of stress concentration and vibration stress.

Suspension Clamp

Application: ADSS pre-twisted cable suspension clamp is mainly used for hanging cable on aerial self-supporting ADSS cable lines. The function of the clamp is similar to that of an ordinary hanging cable clamp. It is recommended to use the

environment when the line Angle is less than or equal to 300.

Overhead Line Damper

Application: Overhead Line Damper is mainly used in ADSS optical fiber cable, OPGW cable, and overhead power lines, to eliminate or reduce the vibration of wire and cable under the action of laminar flow wind, so as to prevent the damage of clamping tools
