What are the low temperature properties of filled Outside Plant (OSP) copper cables manufactured by Superior Essex?

February 4, 2020

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.
