Production Characteristics

 

1, OPGW Repair Rods are designed as a single-component, outer layer assembly for use on OPGW and are intended for repair of the outer mechanical strand members on an OPGW cable.
2, The extent of mechanical damage that the product can repair for single layer OPGW is up to 50% of the cable rated strength.
3, OPGW Repair rods are not an optical repair product.
4, The 50% rating is established based on repair rod performance. Contact the OPGW cable manufacture to verify the extent of damage that the specific cable design can survive without jeopardizing the performance of the fiber optic elements. If the cable manufacturer limits the repair level to less than 50%, limit the use of the repair rod to the lower level for that specific cable.

5. Right-hand lay is standard, left-hand lay product is optional
