Microduct

Microducts for Micro Optical Fiber Cable Application

Technical Specification

GENERAL

Microduct is small High Density Polyethylene (HDPE) pipe, which may be in the form of individual pipe or as bundled pipes, and functions as optical fiber micro cable protection in underground application.

HDPE Microduct has the ultra violet (UV) resistant property, non-corrosive and non-conductive with smooth wall to easy micro cable installation. The bundled microducts such as 2-way, 3-way, 4-way, 7-way or other configurations can be deployed at severe conditions such as manual digging, manual boring & pulling techniques or sand-less trench installation.

CCSI microduct is designed to be strong, flexible, lightweight, durable, non-toxic, easy to install and smooth at the inner and outer layers with uniform thickness and easy of jointing. CCSI microduct is for direct underground buried installation or to be pulled into existing duct or conduit, for aerial installation between poles using lashing method and ideal for cable jetting, air blown and even with manual pulling installation.

CCSI microduct typically has small diameter of up to 16.0mm outside diameter, bundled of 2 or more inner-duct with extrusion process. The term of bundled micro-duct described as 2-way, 3 –way, 4-way, 7-way or other configurations according to the client requirements. The advantage of microduct bundled over conventional HDPE subduct are:

  • Low initial installation cost, for example 7-way Microduct can be inserted with one micro cable first and then additional cables can be pulled without the need to do digging and install other HDPE ducts for the future expansion.
  • Easy to install by inserting to existing duct or occupied duct.
  • Ease of branching and jointing
  • Micro-ducts and micro cables provide smaller enclosures, enabling operators to place them in most existing vaults and pedestals, saving restoration service time and money. Micro-ducts and micro cables combination affords the compromise of today’s cost versus need in the future

REFERENCE STANDARDS

The offered CCSI HDPE microduct pipes complies to ITU-T-REC-L.79 recommendation and annexes also compliant to IEC 60794-5
