RM-Series Round Messenger Cables


  • Outdoor aerial installations along utility poles for cable television, telecom or other outside plant campus backbone applications without the need for cable lashing or grounding


  • Lightweight, all-dielectric self-supporting (ADSS) construction is ideal for use near electrical power lines and in areas of frequent lightning
  • No messenger or lashing is required
  • Round cable construction for minimum wind drag and ice buildup
  • Aramid strength members reduce weight for longer span lengths
  • Wide operating temperature range of -55°C to +85°C
  • 900µm tight-buffer eliminates the need for costly and time-consuming installation of fanout kits or pigtail splices because connectors terminate directly to the fiber
  • Standard with Ultra-Fox Plus fiber (500µm)
