Data Sheet

Conductors: Solid annealed copper in 19, 22, 24 and 26 AWG.

Insulation: Conductors are insulated with a solid polyolefin. The conductor insulation is color-coded in accordance with industry standard.

Twisted Pair: 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 or 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 unit binders.

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

Shielding: The dual shielding system consists of two metal tapes. Inner: A corrugated, copolymer coated, 8-mil aluminum tape is applied directly over the core wrap. The aluminum tape does not butt or overlap at any point along the length of the cable. Outer: A corrugated, copolymer coated, 6-mil steel tape is applied directly over the aluminum and overlaps. The shield interfaces are flooded with an adhesive compound to provide a moisture barrier and inhibit corrosion.

Support Member: A 1/4 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.

Outer 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.

Inner Jacket: A black polyethylene jacket.

Jacket Markings: Information, such as manufacturer’s identification, pair count, AWG, product identification and a telephone handset is printed at 2 ft. intervals on the cable jacket. Sequential footage markings are printed at alternate 2 ft. intervals.

Optional Designs: AsFOUR®-2-8 is available with an internal screen for use with T-Carrier systems.

4SProducts AsFOUR®-2-8 cables are designed for aerial installations. 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 fastand easy using standard methods and hardware.
