Three different versions of Hexatronic Viper micro cables with blue outer sheath

The Hexatronic Viper series of micro cables are characterized by state of the art installation performance when installed by blowing into microducts. Particularly, installations in access networks with difficult routes, which are facilitated by the enhanced performance of the Viper cables. All parameters such as cable diameter, sheath friction, cable stiffness etc are optimized for best installation performance without compromizing mechanical or environmental properties. The micro cables are based on a slim loose tube design with up to 36 tubes per cable. The design facilitates fiber preparation and mid-span access. The cables are suitable for long-distance, air blown installation in microducts, with an inner diameter of as little as 8 to 12 mm. The cables have excellent bend performance and an extremely wide operational temperature range.

The termite resistant version features an extra, thin Polyamide sheath on top of the standard HDPE sheath.

The Micro Cables are designed with one, two or three layers of inner protective tubes made of a unique Polyamide 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. Each tube contains 12 or 24 fibers. As a result, The Viper 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 -45 to +70°C can be used in many environments, on all continents where heat and cold are often a major concern.

Installation Notes

Typical installation performance:

  • Ducts ID 8-10 mm, cable OD ≤6.7 mm: 2000 m
  • Ducts ID 12 mm, cable OD ≤8.0 mm: 2000 m
  • Ducts ID 15-16 mm, cable OD <11 mm: 2000 m, cable OD 11-12 mm: 1500 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.

If the cable is installed by blowing the temperature shall be -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.
