Forms a perpendicular branch with the VDC1 conduit system.


This T style fitting is instrumental in reducing costs in FTTH and FTTX applications, where easy branching is required during or post installation.

Features / Benefits

ID – 16108

  • Allows cable or tubing elements to be redirected into a perpendicularly attached VDC style conduit.
  • Can be installed into hard infrastructure with minimal disruption and excavation.
  • Can be installed onto the VDC1 conduit route during or post network installation onto a live network.
  • Forms a durable well protected transition.
  • Cables can be pulled through the T in the branching direction.
  • Allows networks to be built with a BUS style architecture vs. a star, which reduces conduit lengths and cost.
  • Design allows for unlimited re-entry.
  • Reduces the number of splice points and slack points required on a network.
