Air Blown Fibers (ABF) are extremely slim cable units with a diameter of only 1 to 1.6 mm. Despite the super slim design each Air Blown Fiber has a capacity of 2 to 24 fibers. Air Blown Fibers can be installed in all types of microducts with an inner diameter of 2 up to 6 mm. Air Blown Fiber are especially suitable for drop connections in Fiber To The Home installations.

  • Pre-terminated fiber on reel
  • Blowable ferrule at outer end
  • Time saving installation
  • Several connector options
  • Extra strong and durable design
  • Smooth, low-friction sheath
  • 2 fibers, G657A1 bend resistant fibers
  • Extra wide operational temperature range
  • Water and Ice tested
  • State of the art blowing performance
  • Zero sheath shrinkage


    Hexatronic Stingray is a high performance Air Blown Fiber Unit intended for blowing into microducts. The main application area is for fiber access networks such as Fiber To The Home (FTTH).


    The Hexatronic Stingray Air Blown Fiber is designed with durability and performance in mind. The unique design offers a combination of properties previously not available on the market. A sturdy fiber unit with state of the art fiber blowing performance increases the installation success rate and provides quick and problem free installation. The Stingray has a unique sheath material with zero sheath shrinkage, which means no fragile splice points or sensitive installations in wall outlets or fiber cabinets.

    The Air Blown Fiber unit is colored dark blue for good visibility when installed in semi-translucent microducts.

    The Air Blown Fiber is delivered in fixed lengths on cardboard reels with pre-terminated connector at inner end and blowable ferrule at outer end. For optimum blowing performance, use the Hexatronic Air Blown Tool LTT 179 2040.
