FIBERLIGN® Dielectric Support


The FIBERLIGN Dielectric Support (FDS) system is designed to gently, but firmly, support All-Dielectric Self-Supporting (ADSS) cable. It is intended for tangent support installations on lines that feature relatively low voltages, short spans and modest mechanical loads.


  • The approximate recommended maximum span lengths for the FDS are:
    • 600' for < 1.00" OD cable (NESC – heavy)
    • 300' for ≥ 1.00" OD cable (NESC – heavy)
  • Body and top are made from a high-strength, engineered dielectric material.  Zine plated bolts with washers secutre the top to the body.
  • Inserts are made from a soft, pliable dielectric material that gently grips the ADSS cable.
  • Threads onto standard 5/8" 11-UNC hot dipped galvanized thru-bolt
  • May be mounted horizontally or vertically
  • May be used as a stringing traveler at the structure on up to 10° line angles (20° in certain cases).
  • All components may be reused as desired if in good condition.

 

FIBERLIGN Dielectric Support

• Each Dielectric Support includes one complete insert (two halves) for the stated cable range
