||FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: New ADSS Cable Placement System Introduction
Cable Placement System Specifically Designed For
Installation of All-Dielectric/Self-Support Cable in
Tough Environmental and Electrical Conditions.
April 2012, Trevose, PA -- Known for rugged and dependable outside plant cable installation tools and equipment, the General Machine Products Company, Inc. (GMP), Trevose, PA, is pleased to introduce the All-Dielectric/Self-Support Cable Placement System to its line of aerial cable placement solutions. The All-Dielectric/Self-Support (ADSS) Cable Placement System provides specialized equipment necessary for aerial installation of nonconductive, high-strength fiber optic ADSS cable over short, medium and long span distances.
As its name indicates, All-Dielectric/Self-Supporting cable requires no messenger wire for support. Therefore, placement is achieved in a single pass, making ADSS cable an easy and economical way to install a fiber optic network. This type of installation can also be a solution in an aerial environment where power cables are close by, or where a lashing operation is impossible due to the proximity of other cables on the poles.
Because ADSS cable can be deployed in a variety of tough environmental and electrical
conditions, components that make up the All-Dielectric/Self-Support Cable Placement System are specifically designed to meet the challenges work crews face. GMP's All-Dielectric/Self-Support Cable Placement System includes the equipment you need to install ADSS cable efficiently and
The Cable Pony Trailer Mounted Winch uses grooved, double bull wheels to provide superior
handling of the pulling rope, while providing a constant tension with a maximum capacity of up to 2,200 lbs. (1,000 kgs). The winch can offer line pulling speeds up to 130 ft. (40 M) per minute.
The ADSS Cable Placement System also includes a Payout Stand and Storage Reel. The
Storage Reel has a capacity of 2,000 ft. (609.6 M) of 5/16 inch. (7.9 mm) diameter rope. It is uniquely designed to be compatible for mounting either on the Cable Pony Trailer Mounted Winch or the Payout Stand.
Two (2) sizes of In Line Blocks and three (3) sizes of Starter Blocks are also offered with our ADSS Cable Placement System. This variety of blocks will maintain the bending radius
requirements for various cable diameters, load ratings, etc.
