Product Details

LA-ABC-001 Microduct ~288F


Loose Tube / Gel-Filled / All Dielectric
Single Jacket None Armored Optical Fiber Cable

Lexington Ames LA-ABC-001 series is ideal for air-blown installation in microducts, engineered and tested for existing microduct brands. The ODs range from 0.213″ (5.4mm) for less than 72 fiber count to 0.378″ (9.6mm) for 288 fiber count. The LA-ABC-001, Single Mode, 9/125, G.652.D is manufactured with GR-20 certified glass. Available in fiber counts from 12 to 288, the cable is sold in a reel of 13,000 to 20,000feet. The cable is designed and manufactured to travel at least 5,000 feet within microducts in most cases.

Standards and Certifications

ITU-T G.650, G.652.D. IEC 60793, 60794. RUS 7 CFR 1755. ISO 9001, 14001, OHSAS 18001. TIA-598-D. GR-20 (glass)


The cable core consists of color coded fibers, dry water swellable material, color coded loose tubes, PE filler (if necessary), SZ-stranded around the dielectric central strength member with water blocking yarn(s).

The cable structure is completed by the application of a core binder yarn(s), which with the core, are covered by an outer PE jacket.
