The current designs and materials utilized in the manufacture of Superior Essex filled OSP copper cables, including our EnduraGain™ OSP (CAT 5e, CAT 6) designs, are suitable for use at temperatures of -55° C.
Excellent cold temperature performance is often taken for granted by users of Superior Essex cable products. Industry standards specify cold performance at -20° C, which is well above the low temperature in many parts of the Northern states and Canada. A cable that merely meets industry standards would manifest itself in extreme temperatures as a jacket/insulation crack or a voltage failure, both of which could result in service problems.
