SEPTEMBER 12, 2010 -- Hitachi Cable Manchester has introduced a new gel-free outside plant fiber-optic cable. The Mojave line of fiber-optic cables, available with 12 to 432 strands of optical fiber, consists of 250 micron optical fibers (Corning glass is standard) housed within buffer tubes that use aramid yarns impregnated with Super Absorbent Polymers (SAP) for water blocking. Outside the buffer tubes, additional SAP impregnated yarns are used to further prohibit water migration within the cable.

The cable core is protected by a polyolefin outer jacket that is moisture and fungus resistant. Optical fiber options include all multimode and singlemode glass types.

Mojave cables are also available with corrugated armor and all Mojave cable constructions are compatible with all connectors intended for loose tube 250 micron glass, Hitachi Cable Mancheters asserts. Mojave cables are available through the company’s network of authorized distributors.
