Cable installation: Greenlee and Sherman+Reilly, Textron Inc. companies, introduce the all new ULTIMAZ Point-to-Point (P2P) Hybrid Fiber Drop Installation system. The ULTIMAZ P2P is a user-friendly solution used to install short sections of cables from 50 feet to 1,200 feet with ease.
The ULTIMAZ P2P offers a stress free installation CableJetting method that reduces the rate of damaged fiber optic cable. Installation speeds up to 600FPM allows a six times faster rate compared to hand pulling. This installation device comes with a handheld or stand-mounted hybrid design that utilizes this pushing or “jetting method,” that combines a low strain pushing force with a high speed air stream along the microcable surface for round or flat drop cables with outer diameters of 3.0mm to 10.5mm. Drops may be pushed via compressed air, or bottled air may be introduced into the system for longer distances. Although designed for drops, some cable duct combinations can yield installation lengths near 3,000 feet.
The ULTIMAZ P2P is lightweight and portable, weighing only 3lbs. This design reduces fatigue and injuries compared to hand pulling. The cable installs directly from the reel, so no pull lines are used. The ULTIMAZ P2P can be used to install both round and flat cables, and is also compatible with microducts from 10mm to 18mm in diameter. The use of a special insert will adapt to OSP ducts from 1/2 inch, 3/4 inch, 1 inch and 1 1/4 inch I.Ds. The ULTIMAZ P2P provides fast, safe, user-friendly installations for the ISP or the OSP.
