Typical Outdoor Armored Direct Burial (OSPDB) Jacket Applications:

Our Corning Altos® Outdoor Armored Direct Burial (OSPDB) Pre-Terminated Fiber Optic Cable Assemblies are rated for almost all outdoor applications.  These assemblies are the most durable and rugged assemblies we offer for permanent installation.  They are designed for installation directly buried in trenches and underground installation where rodent chew damage is a concern, overhead lashed to a guy wire, or secured to a building or other permanent outdoor structure.  This jacket design also offers superior crush resistance.  Our outdoor armored pre-terminated fiber optic assemblies are perfect for campus backbones, headend termination to a fiber backbone, and intra-building backbones.  They are also designed for a variety of voice, data, video, and image applications.  If installing in conduit we recommend using at least a 3" diameter conduit to accommodate for the assembly breakout.  

Choosing a direct burial rated jacket helps save time and money in outdoor applications where conduit is necessary, or in industrial environments which require extra protection. Although this option is priced higher than standard indoor/outdoor distribution cable that needs to be ran inside conduit, it outweighs its overall price when compared the cost of purchasing conduit and then the labor involved having to pull the cable through it.  This outdoor (OSPDB) armored cable has a heavy duty polyethylene (PE) UV and water proof jacket, corrugated steel tubing, and water blocking swellable tape surrounding the fiber optic strands.

Note: Polyethylene (PE) OSP cable is restricted to a 50 feet run indoors due to fire-code restrictions. 

Standard QuickTreX Manufacturing Features:

  • Our Corning Outdoor Armored Direct Burial (OSPDB) assemblies are made with genuine Corning® Altos® fiber optic cable, glass, and Corning® AFOP connectors.
  • Fast Custom ISO 9001 Certified & Corning Gold Manufacturing in the USA. 2-millimeter UV rated, sequentially labeled furcation tubing is installed on each strand for easy identification and extra durability before, during, and after the pull.
  • Heat shrink tubing, an OSP Outdoor rated breakout kit, and glue set is used at the transition from the jacket to the furcation tubing providing superior strength and strain relief while pulling the assembly.
  • Connectors inside the basket are staggered for less bulk and more flexibility.
  • Each connector is individually plastic wrapped to prevent contamination by pulling lubricants and/or other contaminants.
  • Each assembly includes a wrap around-label on both ends of the assembly which will include the QuickTreX part number and individual serial number. 
  • Each Assembly includes a full test report. During our testing process all fiber ends are visually inspected with a fiberscope of 400 power or better for surface defects including, cracking, pitting, and scratches, on the glass surface of the connector.  All connector ends are then tested utilizing a professional grade Loss Test Set.
  • The test report is saved in our database for 1 year and can be requested at any time.
  • Pulling Eyes (pulling baskets) if equipped are made from super strong polyethylene mesh and feature a free-spinning buckle to eliminate twisting of the cable during the pull. Heat shrink tubing is used at: 
       1. Where the basket meets with the turnbuckle (pull eye hook)
       2. Where the basket ends and connects with the cable jacket to prevent snags and promote a smooth pull. 

All assemblies 100ft and over will be placed on a spool for easy installation. Assemblies under 100ft will be neatly air spooled.

Our Corning Outdoor (OSP) Assemblies are made with genuine Corning® Altos® fiber optic cable and Corning® AFOP connectors.
