Prysmian Group offers a comprehensive range of low-voltage secondary distribution cable
Prysmian Group provides a variety of 600-volt-rated secondary power distribution cables that can be either flexible or rigid with the compounds varying from PE to low-smoke zero-halogen. Our comprehensive portfolio can be tailor-made to meet markets and customers specifications and standards. For our full breadth of low-voltage product, see Inside Low Voltage below.
Inside Low Voltage
Underground NetworkToggle Details
Prysmian’s PowrNet® 600 Volt secondary network cable was engineered for use in congested urban secondary network duct and buried systems in wet or dry locations where maximum reliability, ease of installation and low-smoke cables are required.
Underground DistributionToggle Details
Prysmian’s PowrServ® XL 600 Volt-rated, lead-free XLPE insulated underground distribution cables in single, duplex, triplex and quadruplex configurations may be installed direct buried or in duct and are resistant to abrasion, impact and sunlight. These cables are suitable for temperatures of 90°C in wet or dry locations.
Prysmian also offers secondary underground distribution 600 Volt cables in various constructions with extra flexibility (SUPERFLEX™), toughness and self-repairing technology (SUPERSEAL®).
Underground Abuse ResistantToggle Details
Prysmian Group provides low-voltage cables for secondary underground distribution in abuse resistant constructions such as PowrServ® AR XLPE/HDXLPE cables (in duplex, triplex and quadruplex configurations) and 600 Volt SUPERTUF™ ruggedized cables that provide extra mechanical toughness balanced with flexibility.
Underground Tri-RatedToggle Details
Prysmian’s PowrServ® 600 Volt tri-rated, lead-free XLPE insulated underground distribution cables in duplex, triplex and quadruplex configurations are designed for secondary power distribution circuits. They are rated temperature in wet or dry locations, resistant to abrasion, impact and sunlight, and meet all applicable requirements of ANSI/ICEA Standard S-105-692 and UL Standard 854. PowrServ tri-rated is listed as a Type USE-2/RHH/RHW-2 cable and may be installed direct buried or in duct or conduit.
Overhead Service DropToggle Details
Prysmian’s PowrServ® OH 600 Volt-rated overhead service drop cables in duplex, triplex and quadruplex neutral-supported constructions may be used for overhead service entrance applications. Duplex is intended to deliver single-phase power. Triplex is intended to deliver 3-wire single-phase power. Quadruplex is intended to deliver 4-wire three-phase power. They meet all applicable requirements of ANSI/ICEA Standard S-76-474.
Covered/Line WireToggle Details
Weather-proof line wire is used for overhead transmission and distribution lines. The covering provides mechanical protection to the conductor and is resistant to weathering and chemicals. If the conductors accidentally come into contact due to high winds, falling tree limbs or other disturbances, the covering resists short circuits and the tendency for conductors to weld together.
Covered/Tree WireToggle Details
Tree wire is used in areas with overhead power lines that have a potential for contact with trees or other debris. The durable covering helps to protect against electrical faults due to contact. Tree wire consists of a single conductor (AAC, AAAC, or ACSR) covered with either a single layer of thermoset track-resistant covering, a two-layer thermoset covering with a track-resistant outer layer, or a three-layer thermoset covering with a track-resistant outer layer and a thermoset semi-conductive conductor shield. These designs may be used as spacer cable with the appropriate accessories.
RTS/PLAC Secondary Cable Neutral SupportedToggle Details
Reverse twist secondary (RTS) cable is used as a secondary overhead distribution cable for 3-wire single phase power. The alternating lay direction (left-right-left) provides additional cable length for mid-span taps. The insulated conductors of RTS cables are resistant to weathering, sunlight, abrasion, tearing, cutting and chemicals. Conventional equipment can be used to string RTS.
Cable in DuctToggle Details
Prysmian Group’s PowrServ® Combined Duct & Cable offers an economical alternative to pulling cable in previously installed short lengths of duct joined with sleeve couplings. The inherent construction advantages and versatility of the PowrServ design are ideally suited for underground secondary distribution systems.
