The Multicom Formed Wire Dead-end for ADSS Cable is a dielectric Dead-end designed to terminate short span, low tension ADSS fiber optic cables in low voltage environments. The Dead-end is reduced to a single layer component that offers an economical solution for very light loads. The product effectively transfers the low axial load on the cable at the end of the Dead-end legs to low uniform radial compression near the Dead-end loop.
Superior Fatigue Strength: The small diameter wires that comprise each Dead-end are a mixture of
aluminum and aluminum-clad steel to assure long term performance. Dead-end performance depends
upon a number of factors including cable brand and design, tension load requirements, temperature and environmental operating conditions among others. The Multicom Dead-end has a pliable latex coating and flared rod end treatment that avoids possible damage to the cable jacket during and after installation.
1. Loop Length: Length from the color code marking to the end of the loop.
2. Loop Diameter: The loop has a formed diameter designed to interface with standard fittings.
3. Color Code: The Dead-end color code or crossover mark locates the beginning of Dead-end contact with the cable during installation. It is used for identification as well.
4. Dead-end Legs: The legs wrap onto the cable beginning at the crossover mark.
5. Flared Rod Ends: Special rod end treatment to prevent jacket damage.
6. Latex Coating: Pliable coating applied over the Dead-end legs.
7. Product ID Tag: Tag includes product description and application information.
8. Pitch Length: The distance along the leg that represents one complete wrap of the formed helix around the circumference of the cable (360 degrees).
