Product Image

APPLICATIONS

 

Used to supply 3-phase 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 quadruplex 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  Concentric-Lay-Stranded, 6201-T81 Aluminum Alloy Conductors.

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

 

Southwire's quadruplex service drop cable meets or exceeds all applicable requirements of 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. Conductors are manufactured with ridges for phase identification (one conductor one ridge, one conductor two ridges, one conductor plain.)
