APPLICATIONS

 

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.

Tree Wire - Used for spans where trees crowd the right-of-way, such as in wooded residential areas, when a minimum of interference with the environment is desired. Covering minimizes power outages due to conductor contact with tree limbs, reducing the need for frequent or severe trimming.

Spacer Cable - Installed with other spacer cables and a supporting messenger through a series of space-maintaining devices (spacers). The resulting close-proximity configuration minimizes the amount of space and hardware required for line installation; particularly useful in congested areas.
