Three different versions of Hexatronic Viper Micro Cable with black sheath

The aerial micro cable is a cable for installation into microducts mounted on pole lines (aerial installation). The cable is part of the Hexatronic Micro Cable System. The system is used for installing optical fibers in all types of metropolitan and rural access networks. The system provides an easy, cost-efficient rollout and maintenance, which creates the opportunity for increasing broadband penetration, with the capability to grow with user needs.

The Micro Cables are designed with inner protective tubes made of a unique compound. The Polyamide gives a special strength to

the product, while increasing the bending properties as well as other benefits such as extreme temperature resistance.

As a result, Hexatronic Micro Cables are more durable during the installation process as they are able to withstand rough handling.

The unique cable design with an extended operational temperature range of -40 to +70°C can be used in many environments, on all continents where heat and cold are often a factor.

The micro cable consists of up to 8 loose tubes with 12 fibers per tubes. This enables a fiber count from 12 to 96 fibers.

Installation Notes

Typical installation performance:

  • Ducts ID 8-10 mm, cable OD ≤6.7 mm: 2000 m

Installation performance verified on Hexatronic test track, according to IEC 60794. Installation performance is affected by the installed path, environmental conditions, installation equipment etc and actual performance may therefore deviate from the above specified values.

The cable should be installed at a temperature between -15 to +40°C. The cable shall not be stored in direct sunlight. The sun may heat up the cable over the permitted temperature limit.
