Modular armored areal cable kit (MAACK)
What does a MAACK consist of?
USC for MAACK: All-Purpose Optical Fiber Cables
USC stands for Universal Cable, which means optical fiber cables with flexibility, strength, and robust optical characteristics in one design. The material composition includes an inner tube that contains optical elements, steel wires for strength and flexibility, and a plastic sheath to protect the components against various external influences. It also gives the optical fiber cables more of a crush zone for harsh handling in the field. Dimensional and optical changes are available upon request.
