Conductor Material and Size

Conductor material is a matter of both customer preference and required current carrying capacity

  • Copper conductor common for larger loads
  • When both copper and aluminum conductors can meet your requirements, the more economical solution will be a function of the metal and the cable component costs

Insulation Thickness:

  • For cables with a radial moisture barrier, “Southwire Standard Wall” reduced insulation thicknesses within the stress limits in AEIC specification CS9 are recommended
  • For applications requiring smaller cable diameters, specific designs are available upon request within the stress limits in AEIC specification CS9

Sheath material:

  • Copper and aluminum corrugated sheaths offer the best mechanical and moisture protection for your HV cable, and copper will provide better short circuit performance and improved connectability
  • Composite laminate sheaths in both copper and aluminum that offer excellent protection against moisture ingress

Jacket:

  • Standard outer jacket: extruded LLDPE with a co-extruded outer semi-conductive polyethylene layer for jacket integrity testing
  • Halogen Free Fire Retardant (HFFR) compounds are available upon request for installations in cable trays and ventilated troughs
