Quadruplex Service Drop Wire

The ABC cable has been widely used in our country with the advantages of excellent electric properties, strong ability to resist short circuit, long service life, light weight, easy to install, operate and maintain, etc


The quadruplex cables are suitable for use as drop cables from a pole-mounted transformer to the service entrance of a structure, or as the secondary distribution between poles. The cables should be limited to the voltages of 600 volts or less (phase to phase) at conductor temperatures not to exceed 75°C for polyethylene insulation conductors or 90°C for crosslinked polyethylene(XLPE) insulated conductors.


ASTM B230, B231, B232, B399, B498, ICEA S-76-474 Standard


The phase conductors are concentrically stranded compressed 1350-H19 aluminum and insulated polyethylene or crosslinked polyethylene (XLPE), The neutral messengers are concentrically stranded AAC, ACSR, or 6201 aluminum alloy. The conductors are manufactured with ridges for phase identification (one conductor with one ridge, one conductor with two ridges, and one conductor is plain).

Technical parameters:

(1)Designated sizes are: ACSR 6/1 diameter equivalent and AAC with equivalent resistivity per ASTM B-399 for 6201.
