Inc., a global leader in infrastructure solutions for communications
networks, has introduced a new ConQuest®
conduit design capable of simplifying installation and management of
multiple cables in a single duct.
The new ConQuest® Detectable SubDuct conduit, with its innovative
design, targets underground cable networks having current and future
cable capacity requirements. As a simple and cost-effective solution, it
allows end-users to install a single-duct solution today that provides
additional capacity for future cable installations. This forward
planning eliminates the need to place additional dedicated conduit later
as the network expands. Each separate pathway is capable of carrying
individual cables while protecting against natural or
“CommScope’s SubDuct conduit establishes a throughway for end-users to
place multiple cables independently during a single installation,” said
Douglas Wells, director, Broadband, Hybrid Fiber Coax, CommScope. “With
the company’s proven track record for designing award-winning conduit
solutions for our customers, we believe this design provides them
additional options when installing today’s rapidly changing and
ConQuest® Detectable SubDuct’s unique design allows it to be customized
with various amounts of three-quarter inch chambers within a single
jacket, providing easy installation and allowing the use of
industry-standard couplers to match any end-user’s requirements. Made
from high-density polyethylene, the Standard Dimension Ratio (SDR)
11-rated inner chambers provide ample protection for all cables and are
ideally sized for the installation of standard all-dielectric fiber
cables up to 144-count. The robust design of ConQuest® Detectable
SubDucts permits the use of standard fiber-optic cables construction
rather than micro cables.
Furthermore, the design can be supplied with an optional integrated
18-gauge copper clad steel tone wire, allowing for the easy locating of
all-dielectric fiber-optic cables. The outer jacket can be easily
removed providing access to the inner ducts, allowing for easy
installation and bending in confined areas such as underground
pedestals. The conduit meets or exceeds the standards in ASTM D 3350-05
for Type III, Class PE 334480E (colors with UV stabilizer) or Class C
(black), high-density polyethylene.
