ENOPAC, optical attached cable 
dielectric, not self-supported, optical attached cable

Note 1 to entry: OPACs can be used with one of the following attachment methods:

wrapped, known as an all-dielectric (wrap): using special machinery, a lightweight flexible non-metallic cable is wrapped helically around either the earth wire or the phase conductor;

lashed: non-metallic cables are installed longitudinally alongside the earth wire, the phase conductor or on a separate support cable (on a pole route) and are held in position with a binder or adhesive cord;

spiral attached: similar to the lashed cables except that the method of attachment involves the use of special preformed spiral attachment clips.

Note 2 to entry: OPAC cable designs are not covered by this specification.
