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. Not Suitable for Direct Burial. 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.
