With its innovative dry-core design, the AccuRibbon DC Cable is specifically engineered for faster, cleaner installation. Unlike traditional outside plant fiber optic cables that use gels in direct contact with optical fibers, the AccuRibbon DC Cable replaces the gel inside the central tube with a super-absorbent tape that provides water blocking “on demand”. The absence of gels allows almost effortless splice preparation and a lower overall cable weight. Why not lose the gel today?

In addition to being gel free, AccuRibbon units support the use of mass-fusion splicing to speed fiber termination. The inherent high fiber density of AccuRibbon units also helps to maximize the number of fibers that can be deployed in available duct space. Deploying the most fibers possible in a limited space and terminating them quickly and cheaply are critical to cost-effective deployments – AccuRibbon DC Cables can help you do both.
