The Mini LT Flat Drop Cable offers a compact and lightweight yet durable, self-supporting fiber optic design in an easily accessible construction.

To construct the cable, up to 12 optical fibers are placed in a 2.0 mm gel-filled buffer tube to create a flexible and easy-to-access core.  Next, two fiberglass rods are placed diametrically opposite on either side of the fiber core, providing excellent crush resistance and tensile strength during installation and over the lifetime of the cable.  The strength member rods and fiber core are then encapsulated in a durable polyethylene (PE) jacket to create a flat cable cross-section and provide added protection to the cable core.
