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 voltages of 600 volts or less phase to phase and at
conductor temperatures not to exceed 75°C for polyethylene insulated conductors
or 90°C for crosslinked polyethylene (XLP) insulated conductors.
Conductors are concentrically stranded, compressed 1350-H19 aluminum. Insulated
with either polyethylene or XLP crosslinked polyethylene. Neutral messsengers
are concentrically stranded 6201, AAC, or ACSR. One conductor is manufactured
with an extruded ridge for phase identification.
Quadruplex service drop cable meets or exceeds the following ASTM
Wire, 1350-H19 for electrical Purposes.
conductors, Concentric-Lay-Stranded, Coated Steel Reinforced (ACSR)
Service Drop cable meets or exceeds all applicable requirements of ICEA
Designated sizes are ACSR 6/1 diameter equivalent and AAC with equivalent
resisivity per ATM B-399 for 6201.
Conductor temperature of 90°C for XLP, 75°C for Poly; ambient temperatures
of 40°C; emissivity 0.9; 2ft/sec wind in sun.
