New Posters Showcase Southwire Utility Products - 2008

These new posters from Southwire provide handy reference summaries of transmission and distribution products.

If you need a quick reference to keep track of your options in power transmission and distribution, Southwire has what you need.

Two new line posters from Southwire are useful tools for cable specifiers in the energy industry.

The posters show:

Typical utility cable applications and cable types for each application and a transmission and distribution cable overview

A summary of options for Covered Aerial MV Systems

 

These new multi-colored sales tools are available in two sizes, 8 1/2 x 11 inches, which is convenient to put in a ring binder, and 28 x 36 inch wall posters.

General application areas

The new overview poster covers general applications of transmission and distribution cables. This poster shows cable application scenarios including generation, transmission, substation uses, distribution and service entrances. It summarizes both overhead and underground cable types, bare, insulated and shielded, and includes current transmission technology such as high-temperature superconductors.

Covered aerial MV conductors

Covered Aerial MV (CAMV) systems let you string three-phase distribution circuits up to 46 kV in much less space than traditional bare-conductor installations. CAMV systems let utilities easily add distribution capacity to existing poles. CAMV also allows new circuits in alleys, under bridges, and in other situations where clearance is limited. In environments where trees are close to the right-of-way, covered overhead cables can reduce outages and also the frequency, severity - and cost - of tree trimming.

The CAMV poster shows conductors, spacers, insulators, brackets and other specialized components used in CAMV installations. All of the conductors, specialized hardware and tools, plus technical support, for covered overhead installations are available from Southwire.
