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.
Quadruplex 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.
Overhead (OH) quadruplex service drop cable consists of three aluminum conductors insulated with extruded lead-free Cross-linked Polyethylene (XLPE), twisted around a bare conductor which serves as a supporting neutral. Service drop cable meets the requirements of ANSI/ICEA S-76-474
The all-aluminum stranded conductors are Class A, Class B, or SIW compressed 1350-H19 aluminum. Solid conductors are H16 temper.
The insulation is Black extruded lead-free Cross-linked Polyethylene (XLPE).
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 righthand.
Phase identification is provided by means of White print legend markings on one phase conductor, one rib on another phase conductor, and two ribs on another phase conductor.
