Used to supply power, usually from a pole-mounted transformer, to the user's service head in areas where squirrels are known to damage the bare neutral by chewing. Damage can result in complete loss of the neutral, known to cause voltage stability problems at the service. Used at a maximum voltage of 600 volts phase-to-phase, or 480 volts to ground, and at conductor temperatures not to exceed 75°C for polyethylene conductors (poly) or 90°C for crosslinked polyethylene (XLP) insulated conductors.
