Fiber Optic Ground Wire FOGW designs incorporate a fiber optic core with a protective covering over which is stranded a layer of Aluminum-Clad extra-high-strength steel. The unique placement of the fibers and the respective stranding of the buffer tubes assures strain-free fiber behavior throughout the service life of the FOGW, a quality required to assure a 50-year service life.
