Used to supply 3 phase power , usually from a pole-mounted transformer to the use`s servic head where connection to the service entance cable is made . To be used at voltages of 600 volts or less phase to phase and at conductor temperature not to exceed 75 for PE insulated conductors or 90 for XLPE insulated conductors.
Quadruplex Cable Bare Neutral
The all-aluminum stranded conductors are Class AA or Class A 1350-H19 (AAC) or 6201-T81 alloy (AAAC). The aluminum conductor steel reinforced (ACSR) is Class AA. The direction of lay of the outer layer is right- hand.
Quadruplex Cable Options
Quadruplex Cable Application
Quadruple service drop cable is intended to deliver 4-wire three phase power from the secondary power line or pole-mounted transformer to the service-entrance conductors at the user’s building or other structure. It may also be used as pole line secondary with service splices at the pole or in mid-span.
Quadruplex Cable Construction
Conductors are concentrically stranded, compressed 1350-H19 aluminum. Insulated with either polyethylene or cross-linked polyethylene (XLPE). 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.)
Quadruplex Cable Standard
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.
Quadruplex service drop cable meets or exceeds all applicable requirements of ICEA S-76-474 .
Quadruplex Cable Features and Benefits
The insulated conductors of service drop cables are resistant to weathering, sunlight, abrasion, tearing, cutting and chemicals. This cable is rated at 600 volts with a maximum conductor operation temperature of 90°C for cross-linked polyethylene insulation.
