All Dielectric Self-supporting ADSS Fiber Optic Cable

A type of fiber optic cable that is strong enough to support itself between structures without containing conductive metal elements.

adss cable

ADSS fiber optic cable, which stands for “all-dielectric self-supporting optical cable,” uses special materials and a built-in support system. This ADSS fiber meaning refers to its ability to function without metallic elements and to support itself.

It offers rapid and cost-effective transmission for power communication systems due to insulation, high temperature resistance, and tensile strength. This cable is installed overhead with ease, making it ideal for existing power lines. It minimizes deployment costs in FTTH networks and enhances fiber accessibility. Its versatility has made it widely adopted in overhead power line systems.

ADSS Aerial Fiber Optic Cable At Bonelinks

ADSS cable is designed for outdoor plant aerial and duct applications within local and campus network loop architectures, spanning from pole-to-building to town-to-town installations. This cabling system, comprising cables, suspension, dead-end, and termination enclosures, provides a comprehensive transmission circuit infrastructure, ensuring high reliability performance.

There are two types of sheaths for ADSS cable. When the line voltage is lower than 110KV, choose PE sheath. When the line voltage is higher than 110KV, choose AT sheath.

There are two structures of ADSS (All Dielectric Self Supporting) fiber optic cables. In the case of small span, ADSS All Dielectric Self Supporting Cable with uni-tube structure can be used. In the case of medium and large span, stranded structure ADSS All Dielectric Self Supporting Cable can be selected. Of course, the corresponding terrain should also be considered at the same time. Leveraging single mode fibers and light wavelengths at 1310 nm or 1550 nm, circuits up to 100 km without repeaters are feasible. Typically, ADSS was utilized in 48 and 96 cores.

ADSS Cable Stranded Structure

Utilizing a stranded structure design, optical fibers and water-blocking grease are enclosed in loose tubes, wound around a central reinforcement (usually FRP). This type is able to obtain longer fiber lengths.

ADSS Cable Central Tube Structure

ADSS Cable Central Tube Structure

In a central tube design, fibers in a PBT loose tube with water-blocking material are wrapped in aramid yarn for desired tensile strength. The structure has small diameter and lightweight but with limited lengths.

Applications for ADSS Fiber Optic Cable

Ideal for installation in distribution as well as transmission environments

ADSS all-dielectric self-supporting optical cable is suitable for aerial installations across valleys, lightning-prone areas and other special harsh environments. It is widely used for different (outside plant) deployments.

ADSS cable can be used for applications ranging from short span (40-50 meter) distribution lines to long-span transmission lines (300-500 meter spans) to extraordinary spans required by some river canyon crossings exceeding 1,800 meters. It’s employed in short span aerial installations, commonly on roadside power distribution poles.

Since it is a non-metallic optical cable, ADSS cable can be directly suspended on the overhead power pole and tower. It can be widely used on 220KV, 110KV, and 35KV voltage transmission lines, especially on established lines. It is a direct use of high voltage lines for the power sector.

To calculate sag and tension for ADSS All Dielectric Self Supporting fiber optic cable:

  • Use manufacturer-provided sag tension tables.
  • Select the table that matches your installation conditions.
  • Determine the representative span for your specific application.
  • Find sag and tension data corresponding to the representative span.
  • Account for compound sag, considering horizontal and vertical components and wind deflection angles.
  • Ensure that the ADSS cable’s sag is greater than the overhead wire for safety.
  • Choose suitable observation methods for tension measurement.

    For example, if the representative span is less than 100m, the overhead wire sag is typically 0.5m, and between 100m and 120m, it’s 0.7m. Construction and daily maintenance experience is vital for the effective application of ADSS optical cables.

The stationary reel method is the most common approach used for ADSS cable installation.

The stationary reel method for ADSS fiber optic cable installation involves using a pre-installed pulling rope for installation. It includes framing the poles, installing pole line hardware, setting up stringing blocks, and installing the pulling rope.
