What is the CampusLink Dry Loose Tube?

The CampusLink Single Jacket Dry Riser Fiber Optic Cable is a loose tube fiber optic cable used in indoor-outdoor applications. It is specifically used in aerial lashed, duct, and direct burial applications.

The CampusLink Loose Tube Indoor/Outdoor Dry Riser has many features and benefits. These include fiber identification with TIA standard color coding and a flame retardant, black UV-resistant outer jacket. This particular CampusLink fiber optic cable has dry buffer tubes to simplify access and reduce prep time. This cable also has the benefits of flexible kick-resistant buffer tubes, bend-insensitive single-mode optical fibers, and support of high-performance networks.

Construction of a Fiber Optic Cable

Below we will break down the construction of a fiber optic cable. The part number we will be dissecting is F DRLDB AJ 12 HB 048 E3.

  • F = Feet
  • DRLDB = Indoor/Outdoor Riser All-Dielectric Single Jacket
  • AJ = Jacketed Aluminum
  • 12 = 12f per unit or tube
  • HB = Single Mode (ITU G.652 C & D) Low Water Peak
  • 048 = 48 fibers
  • E3 = attenuation

From the breakdown of this cable, we are able to see that this cable is an indoor-outdoor single-mode, single jacket riser fiber optic cable. Its family is Riser/FT4 ⎸Dry Tubes ⎸OFNR/FT4. It has an aluminum jacket with 48 fibers, 12 fibers per unit, and it has an E3 attenuation classification.
