Corning Cable Systems SOLO® ADSS Short-Span Cables are all-dielectric, self-supporting (ADSS) cables designed for easy and economical one-step installation in campus backbones with self-supporting installations where metallic messengers cannot be used. The loose tube design provides stable performance over a wide temperature range and is compatible with any telecommunications-grade optical fiber. The economical singlejacket design can span distances of 600 ft in NESC light conditions, 500 ft in NESC medium conditions and 300 ft in NESC heavy conditions. This cable incorporates innovative waterblocking materials, eliminating the need for traditional flooding compound and providing efficient and craft-friendly cable preparation. While the concentric, self-supporting cable design allows easy, one-step installation, using standard hardware and installation methods, the SZ-stranded, loose tube design isolates optical fibers from installation and environmental rigors and facilitates midspan access. The ADSS shortspan cables are also available with a proprietary trackresistant polyethylene (TRPE) jacket suitable for installation in electric field potentials up to 25 kV.
