These cables are designed for installation in
trough, shelf rail, cable tunnel,... for optical
links in tunnels, subways,... requiring high
performance against fire propagation (tests
according to C1 NF C 32 070 or IEC 60332-3),
with low smoke density, low toxicity and low
corrosivity. These cables are used by the
French RATP subways.
Their corrugated steel armour insures a high
protection against mechanical aggression
and rodent attacks.
These cables can be custom-adapted for
specific requirements or to comply with
Operator’s Technical Specifications. Please
(1) Watertightness: optional
