Multiplex Overhead Secondary Distribution Cable
National : ICEA S-70-547
Single Conductor Polyethylene-Covered Line Wire is rated for a 75°C normal conductor temperature, and is intended for use in overhead distribution circuits operating at primary or secondary voltages. The covering provides circuit protection against momentary contact with other conductors or trees. Because the covering carries no voltage rating, the conductors must be installed on insulators adequate for the intended service voltage. The user should consider the dielectric compatibility of the covering, insulator and conductor/insulator tie.
Conductors are available in the following constructions:
Aluminum conductor, steel reinforced (ACSR), concentric-lay stranded
Aluminum alloy 1350-H19 hard-drawn, concentric-lay stranded
Medium hard-drawn copper, solid or concentric-lay-stranded
The standard covering on the conductor is black linear low-density polyethylene (LLDPE). Alternatively, a covering of black low-density crosslinked polyethylene (XLPE) with a 90°C temperature rating is available upon request.
