What is a fiber pulling eye?

Product description. The SimpleGrip fiber pulling eye by Fiber Cables Direct is ideal for installing pre-terminated fiber cables through conduit and inside walls. The SimpleGrip is easy to use, and it helps protect cables that can be easily damaged during the installation process.

What is the maximum pulling tension on the fiber optic cable?

600 lbF
Corning Optical Communications cable specification sheets are available which list the maximum tensile load for various cable types. The maximum pulling tension for stranded loose tube cable and ribbon cable is 600 lbF (2,700 Newtons).

What is the purpose of pulling grips and swivels?

The main purpose of a pulling grip is to give users a way to hold onto a cable as it is installed or removed from conduit and duct, or strung with overhead utility lines, according to Ken Hagemeyer, director of product management at Greenlee Textron.

How do you extract fiber optic cable?

Fiber optic cables should always be pulled by the strengthened yarn fibers inside the outer jacket. This strength member can be exposed by removing a small portion of the jacket with a three-hole cable stripper.

How do you remove armored fiber?

Fiber optic cable should only be pulled by these strength members unless the cable design allows pulling by the jacket. Any other method may put stress on the fibers and harm them. Swivel pulling eyes should be used to attach the pulling rope or tape to the cable to prevent cable twisting during the pull.

What is the bend radius of fiber optic cable?

The normal recommendation for fiber optic cable bend radius is the minimum bend radius under tension during pulling is 20 times the diameter of the cable. When not under tension (after installation), the minimum recommended long term bend radius is 10 times the cable diameter.

What is the tensile strength of fiber cable?

The amount of aramid fiber inside a typical indoor cable allows up to 200 pounds of pulling tension, while outdoor cables are rated at 600 to 800 pounds of tension. An additional strength member is used as a stiffener to maintain the allowable cable-bend radius and prevent kinking when pulling around corners.
