OPGW/Ground Wire

OPGW S Stranded steel tube

Application: installation on medium and high-voltage power lines
OPGW S | Emcab

Central strength member (aluminum-clad Steel wires or aluminum alloy wires)


Optical fiber


Stainless steel tube filled with water-blocking gel


Stranded wires (Aluminum-clad steel wires and /or aluminum alloy wires)


Stranded wires (Aluminum-clad steel wires and /or aluminum alloy wires)

Up to 432 fibers

Aluminum-clad steel wires are corrosion resistant

Aluminum alloy wires shield the high-voltage conductors from lightning strikes
