Emtelle's UK Sales Manager for Highways & Datacomms, Scott Modha introduces the new Emtelle GS150 Fibre Blowing Unit in our Guest Blog.


The Emtelle GS150 Fibre Blowing Unit is a small, lightweight unit, consisting of a machined aluminium body, with a compact wheel driven motor. It has an easy to read air pressure gauge, control panel and software controlled drive system.

It is supplied in a single carry case, small enough to be transported in a car - powered by a rechargeable battery pack, removing the need for a separate generator or AC power source, complete with an in-vehicle and mains powered charging pack.

Emtelle GS150 is used for all aspects of FTTX, capable of blowing fibre unit and micro cable sizes from 1.0 to 2.5mm into a micro duct of 5-8mm.

Tested by Emtelle at speeds of up to 115 metres a minute, the GS150 ensures a reliable and fast fibre blowing process, reducing time spent on site and increasing productivity.
