  • Description
  • Parameter
Application:
Used for primary and secondary overhead distribution where limited space is available or desirable for rights of way.  Installed   as an uninsulated conductor; however, covering is effective in preventing direct shorts and instantaneous flashovers should tree limbs or other objects contact conductors in such close proximity.
The resulting close-proximity configuration minimizes the amount of space and hardware required for line installation; particularly useful in congested areas such as alleyways or tight corridors.

Construction:
Conductors are concentrically stranded, AAC (1350-H19), either compressed or full compact depending on conductor size, AAAC or ACSR. Available with high-density track-resistant polyethylene (HDTRPE) or Track-Resistant Crosslinked Polyethylene (XLPE) covering. Strand shield option available as shown in illustration.

Specifications:
Southwire’s 15kV – 35kV covered multi-layer tree wire meets or exceeds all applicable ICEA specifications and the following ASTM specifications:
ASTM B230 
ASTM B231 
ASTM B232 
ASTM B398 
ASTM B399 
ASTM B400
ICEA S121-733
