Reverse Twist Secondary (RTS) cable consists of two aluminum conductors insulated with extruded lead-free Cross-linked Polyethylene (XLPE), reverse twisted around an aluminum alloy or ACSR conductor which serves as a supporting neutral. RTS cable meets the requirements of ANSI/ICEA S-76-474. Conductors meet ASTM B231, B232 and B399 as applicable.
Secondary Cable (RTS) Bare Neutral
The all-aluminum alloy stranded conductors are Class AA or Class A 6201-T81 aluminum alloy (AAAC). The aluminum conductor steel reinforced (ACSR) is Class AA. The outer layer is right-hand.
Secondary Cable (RTS) Options
Secondary Cable (RTS) Lashing Wire
Secondary Cable (RTS) Features and Benefits
The insulated conductors of RTS cables are resistant to weathering, sunlight, abrasion, tearing, cutting and chemicals. Conventional equipment can be used to string RTS. This cable is rated at 600 volts with a maximum conductor operations temperature of 90°C for extruded cross-linked polyethylene insulation.
