SPEC 83250

Quadruplex LLDPE Service Drop. ACSR Neutral - Messenger

Aluminum Conductors With Linear Low Density Polyethylene Insulation.

...

Construction:

  1. Conductor:Conductors are stranded, compressed 1350-H19 aluminum
  2. Messenger:ACSR Neutral
  3. Insulation:Linear Low Density Polyethylene (LLDPE)

Applications and Features:

Used to supply 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 phase-to-phase or less and at conductor temperatures 75°C for Linear Low Density Polyethylene (LLDPE) insulated conductors.

Specifications:

  • ASTM B230 Aluminum, 1350-H19 Wire for Electrical Purposes
  • ASTM B231 Standard Specification for Concentric-Lay-Stranded Aluminum 1350 Conductors
  • ASTM B400 Standard Specification for Compact Round Concentric-Lay-Stranded, Aluminum 1350 Conductors

    Notes:
    1. DC resistances include a 1% length factor for plexing.
    2. Inductive reactance assumes the neutral is carrying current.
    3. Phase conductors assumed to be reverse lay stranded, compressed construction.
    4. Phase spacing assumes cables are touching.
    5. Resistances shown are for the phase conductor only.
    6. Ampacity based on conductor temperature of 75°; ambient temperature of 40°C; emissivity 0.9; 2 ft./sec. wind in sun.
