Originally, ADSS cables were developed from military Lightweight Rugged Deployable (LRD) field cables. With continuous improvement, it is now used for short span overhead installations - usually on roadside distribution poles. Since ADSS cable is non-metallic, it is ideal for applications near high voltage distribution lines and it has become the standard. Using single-mode fiber and optical wavelengths of 1310 nm or 1550 nm, circuits of up to 100 kilometers can be implemented without repeaters.
ere is a sketch of a normal ADSS cabling scenario:
In addition, ADSS cables are suitable for single point suspension applications such as down mines or any application where the product must withstand higher loads than conventional ground cables or permanent or varying tensile loads applied from the outside. sheath. What's more, ADSS can withstand the worst-case combination of extreme weather, ice loads and wind conditions, guaranteeing reliable communication in outdoor situations.
