Are PROFOTECH devices for outdoor installation protected against rodents?

Modern specifications for outdoor cable require structural protection, including protection against rodents. The cable is armored with firm fiber-glass plastic, and special rodent repelling chemical additives are included in the cable housing during its manufacturing.

Fiber-optical cable used by Profotech provides full protection against rodents. Long-term experience of using Profotech's devices, installed both in field environment at substations and in engineering rooms, confirms the high level of security of optical cable systems – no cases of cable damage by rodents have been detected.
