3- Stranding :

- Element of cabling: insulated conductors are assembled in star quads.
- Cabling elements:
· Quads are assembled in concentric bundles with a capacity of 8 pairs,
14 pairs and 28 pairs.
· Cables with 56 pairs are assembled in basic bundles of 14 pairs
· Cables having a capacity higher than 56 pairs are assembled in basic
bundles of 28 pairs.

4- Core wrapping

A dielectric polyester tape is applied over the cable core.

5- Screen

On the cable core cover is applied an aluminum tape.

6- Drain wire

The Drain wire consists of tinned copper with 0.5 mm diameter.

7- Outer sheath

The sheath consists of low density polyethylene. It is black and contains 2.5 0.5 mm of carbon black in compliance with the European standards requirements EN 50290-2-24

8- Suspension wire

The suspension strand is made up of assembled galvanized steel wires.
