G-Series Subgrouping Corrugated Steel Tape (CST) Armored Cable


  • Ideal for installations where direct burial or rodent protection is required
  • Design allows subcables to be routed to multiple locations such as wiring racks and closets
  • Ideal for installations requiring an extremely rugged and reliable cable design where maximum mechanical and environmental protection is necessary
  • Easiest cable to install where routing of cables to multiple locations is desired


  • Inner cable is a fully functional G-Series Subgrouping riser-rated cable
  • High-performance components and construction
  • 6-fiber or 12-fiber subgroups available
  • The steel-armor is easily removed with an internal ripcord, leaving a fully functional intact riser-rated inner cable with original cable markings for identification
  • Helically stranded core for greater flexibility and mechanical protection of the optical fibers
  • Multifiber color-coded subcables, each similar to the D-Series Distribution cable, are easy to identify for improved cable management during installation
  • Subgrouping cable design permits mid-span access
  • Polyethylene(A) outer jacket for excellent UV and weathering resistance
  • Ideal for use in point-to-point runs in adverse environments
  • Wide operating temperature range of -40°C to +85°C
  • High-performance 900µm tight-buffered coating on each optical fiber for environmental and mechanical protection
  • Best design for multimode and single-mode fiber hybrid cables
  • Available with 6-fiber(4.5mm) or 12-fiber(5.5mm) subgroups
  • 2 to 48 fibers
