Data Sheet

Conductors: Solid annealed bare copper in 22 and 24 AWG.

Insulation: Conductors are insulated. The conductor insulation is color-coded in accordance with industry standards.

Twisted Pairs: Individual conductors are twisted into pairs with varying lay lengths to minimize crosstalk and specific color combinations to provide pair identification.

Core Assembly: Cables of 25 pairs and less are assembled into a cylindrical core. Cables larger than 25 pairs are assembled into units, which are then used to assemble the core. Units are individually identifiable by color-coded binders.

Filling Compound: The core assembly is filled with an 80°C ETPR or PIB base jelly compound, completely filling the interstices between the pairs and under the core wrap.

Core Wrap: A non-hygroscopic, dielectric tape is applied over the core assembly to provide protection for the core.

Shielding: A corrugated, copolymer coated, 8-mil aluminum tape is applied longitudinally with an overlap. The shield interfaces are flooded with an adhesive compound to provide a moisture barrier and inhibit corrosion.

Support Member: A ¼ inch, 7-strand Extra High Strength (EHS) galvanized steel messenger serves as the support member and is an integral part of the sheath. The messenger is flooded to inhibit corrosion.

Jacket: A black, linear low-density polyethylene jacket is applied overall. The jacket provides a tough protective covering designed to withstand exposure to direct sunlight, atmospheric temperature changes, and stresses expected in standard installations.

Jacket Markings: Information including the manufacturer’s identification, pair count, AWG and product identification appears at 2-foot intervals. Sequential length markings appear at alternate 2-foot intervals.

4SProducts ALFOUR®-8F cables are designed for aerial applications where a filled cable design is preferred. The core and support member (messenger) lay parallel to each other forming a cross-sectional “Figure 8”. The messenger is an integral part of the cable sheath, yet readily available for gripping, pulling and tensioning. Installation is fast and easy using standard methods and hardware.
