PRODUCT SPECIFICATION
VDC1
Vertical Deflecting Conduit
Product # 10101
Description
TeraSpans Vertical Deflecting Conduit (VDC) is a
two-part conduit system that zips together to encase
cable, blow tube, or pull string.

Applications
Vertical Deflecting Conduit (VDC) houses and protects
cable or blow tube in installations of the VIF system.
Used in both soft and hard infrastructures.

Features / Benefits

Protects 1 cable or blow tube (up to 6mm


outside diameter)
Thin profile with beveled edges to deflect
shovels, picks, and other tools
Modular system that allows for network
branching
Zippered installation of fiber cable allows for
runs that are limited only by cable reel length
(vs. pull / blow length)
Interchangeable sections lock together
VDC Zipper tool ensures cable is not
damaged during installation
Design allows for unlimited re-entry
Bright orange color for maximum visibility
Warning Fiber Optics Cable Inside marking
along all sections

Specifications

Approx. 0.224kg (0.49lbs)/trench meter;


11.18kg (24.64lbs) per 100m roll
Profile (assembled): 26.3mm x 10.3mm
(1.04 x 0.41)
Minimum 100m rolls
Rigid PVC
Micro-channel dimension: Approx 6.8mm x
7mm (0.27 x 0.28)

Water Freezing/Expansion Testing


Although VDC partially fills with water post-installation,
it does not come apart when the water freezes inside.
The VDC will shift slightly, preventing a build-up of
pressure from the expanding ice. Thus, the cable is
not affected.
Tool Required for Assembly: VDC1 Zipper Tool

MV3 Conduit
Product # 10501
Description
MV3 is a two part micro-channeling conduit system
designed for micro trench deployment. The conduit
contains three separated channels, which may contain
a variety of different cable, pull string or blow
tubing/innerduct types. The maximum cable/ tubing
diameter for this conduit is 6mm.

Applications
The MV3 conduit is used for any telecom network
infrastructure deployment where the general civil
infrastructure is in place (brown field areas).
This conduit is well suited for FTTH and FTTX
applications where high fiber count capacities and
many distribution cables/tubing are required.

Features / Benefits

R e v | 01
Mar 25, 2010

cable sizes to be installed in the same conduit.
Fits into a standard width diamond saw cut of
13mm (1/2).
Conduit is applied over the cable/tubing
elements with the zipper tool, thus
cable/tubing elements can be any continuous
length.
Cables and tubing elements can be pulled
within the channels like a traditional conduit.
Design allows for unlimited re-entry

PRODUCT SPECIFICATION
Spool Manager
Product # 18010
Description
TeraSpans Spool Manager is a tool which enables the
handling of cable, tubing, string and tracer wire spools
on a network construction site. The spools are
supported on spool rods which rest on two lift arms.
The lift arms can raise and lower heavy spools from
the ground by turning the small hand jack. The Spool
Manager can be hitched to the VDC Manager to form
a complete and portable system for dispensing and
zipping elements into VDC conduits. Multiple Spool
Managers can be hitched together to form a train in
the event that many cables are required for a network
build.
A broad range of spool sizes can be mounted on the
unit, up to a maximum diameter of 1212mm (4).
Multiple spools can be mounted on the same spool
rod. Cone shaped bushings allow any size of centre
hole on the spool to be connected. Quick release
clamps are used to hold the spools onto the spool
rods. A smaller diameter spool rod is provided for
elements such as string and tracer wire. Both rods
can be used concurrently.
The spool manager can be collaped for shipping and
storage.

Features / Benefits

R e v | 01

VDC Manager
Product # 30015
Description
The VDC Manager automates the handling and
zipping process for TeraSpans complete line of VDC
conduits. The two conduit coils are placed into the
spool rims, then mounted onto the manager. The VDC
is fed through the zipper tool which mounts at the front
of the unit. The VDC Manager is pulled along and the
two VDC halves come together in the zipper tool with
the cable/tubing/string elements inside. The conduit is
then ready for deployment. Alternatively, in tight
areas, the unit may be stationary and the VDC can be
pulled out.
The VDC Manager can be hitched to TeraSpans
Spool Manager to fully automate the handling of
cable/tubing/string, tracer wire and VDC. The
combined system is easily managed by one person
and keeps the network construction footprint very
compact. The system can be moved through narrow
areas and is small enough to operate on a sidewalk.
Both the VDC Manager and the Spool Manager may
be mounted on a truck or a trailer for further
automation. The cart is collapsible for shipping and
storage with no tools required.

Features / Benefits
