FIBERLIGN® Formed Wire Dead-End


The FIBERLIGN Formed Wire Dead-End provides a simple, wrap-on application that is an easy-to-install alternative to bolted dead-ends. Bonding is integrated through the Current Transfer Tab, eliminating the need to purchase separate grounding clamps. This economic advantage reduces material and handling costs.


  • Helically-formed wire dead-end plus Structural Reinforcing Rods (SRR)
  • Structural Reinforcing Rods protect cable from excessive bending strain and compressive stresses
  • Simple, wrap-on installation
  • Standard assembly includes Current Transfer Tab (CTT) and 42 k lbs Thimble-Clevis
  • CTT provides economical grounding attachement designed to provide direct contact with OPGW
  • CTT fault current rating from 80 to 150 kA2 /sec
  • Standard designs are for Left-Hand-Lay OPGW (Contact PLP for Right-Hand-Lay applications
  • Tested to IEEE 1338 specifications, passing performance tests of 100 million aeolian vibration cycles and 100,000 galloping cycles
  • Optional Grounding Wire Assemblies and Linkage Hardware available
