An optical Fibre is a thin, long, transparent material (usually made of glass or plastic) that confines and propagates light waves. Fibre optics use light pulses to transmit information down fibre lines. At one end of the system is a transmitter. This is the place of origin for information coming on to fibre optic lines. The transmitter accepts coded electronic puls information coming from copper wire.
Advantages ofFibre Optic Cables over Traditional Wire Cables:
Easier and Cheaper installation
Many more fibres and channels per cable
Uses light signals
Consumes low power
Carries digital signals
Does not cause EMI effect (Electro Magnetic Interference)
Easier to access without transmission circuit outage
Easier and faster to repair and ideal for using in existing network
Does not experience temperature rise in the event of lightning strike.
Quick installation with no R.O.W. clearance required
Can be easily installed on road/ river crossing and hilly areas.
Overview of ADSS Cable
ADSS is a self-supporting optical fibre cable. It has no metal component and can be installed on live lines with no outages. Hundreds of thousands of miles of ADSS have been installed all over the world, on power lines rated up to 500kV.
Area of Application
On Power Lines
On Street Light Pole
From Pole to building
