Product Notes

Notes: Electrical values are expected performance based on cable testing and representative performance within a typical Belden system. Print Includes Descending Footage/Meter Markings from Max. Put-Up Length to 0. Suitable for Use in Buildings in Wet Locations. Not Suitable for Direct Burial. Fully Water Blocked and Sunlight Resistant (Black Jacket Only). Belden recommends using an entrance demarcation point when transitioning inside buildings with gel-filled OSP cables due to the cable design containing gel specific for wet outdoor environments. The suggested transition point is the REVConnect core coupler, part number RVACPKUBK-S1.
