Aerial Bundled Cable

Overhead Cables/ Powerlines/ Overhead Conductors

1. Covered line wire
Covered line wire is used primarily for overhead secondary distribution lines. It is not an electrically insulated conductor and is treated as a bare conductor when installed.

2. Duplex service drop
To supply 120 volt aerial service for temporary power at construction sites, outdoor or street lighting. For service at 600 volts or lower at a conductor temperature of 75 °C maximum.

3. Triplex service drop
To supply power from the utility lines to the weather head. For service at 600 volts or less (phase to phase) at a conductor temperature of 75°Cmaximum for polyethylene insulation or 90°C maximum for crosslinked insulation.

4. Quadruplex service drop
Used to supply 3 phase power, usually from a pole-mounted transformer to the user’s service head where connection to the service entrance cable is made. To be used at a voltage of 600 volts or less phase to phase and at conductor temperature not exceeding 75°C for polyethylene insulated conductors or 90°C for crosslinked polyethylene insulated conductors.
