APPLICATIONS

 

Used to supply power, usually from a pole-mounted transformer, to the user's service head where connection to the service entrance cable is made. To be used at voltages of 600 volts phase-to-phase or less and at conductor temperatures not to exceed 75°C for polyethylene insulated conductors or 90°C for crosslinked polyethylene (XLP) insulated conductors.

 

 

SPECIFICATIONS

 

Southwire's triplex service drop cable meets or exceeds the following ASTM specifications:

 

• B-230  Aluminum Wire, 1350-H19 for Electrical Purposes.

•  B-231  Aluminum Conductors, Concentric-Lay-Stranded.

•  B-232  Aluminum Conductors, Concentric-Lay-Stranded, Coated Steel Reinforced(ACSR).

•  B-399  Stranded 6201-T81 Aluminum Alloy Conductors.

•  B-901  Compressed Round Stranded Aluminum Conductors Using Single Input Wire.

 

 

Southwire's triplex service drop cable meets or exceeds all applicable requirements of ANSI/ICEA S-76-474.

CONSTRUCTION

Conductors are concentrically stranded, compressed 1350-H19 aluminum. Insulated with either polyethylene or crosslinked polyethylene (XLP). Neutral messengers are concentrically stranded 6201, AAC, or ACSR.
