Fiber optic cable: Successfully installed worldwide since 1982, SkyWrap is a fiber optic cable helically applied on ground wires or phase conductors. A specially designed spinning machine is used to wrap the cable under controlled conditions. This system offers a complete communication link designed and engineered for high-voltage environments at low cost.

SkyWrap is the ideal solution when access to the overhead line is problematic. The installation equipment is lightweight and easy to handle. And, with SkyWrap, there's no need to de-energize the line. The cable can be wrapped on the ground wire under live-line conditions.

• Use for both earth-wires and phase conductors
