Duplex Service Drop Aluminum Conductor is a type of electrical cable that is commonly used in residential and commercial buildings to supply power from the utility company's power lines to the consumer's meter base.
Duplex overhead service drop cable is primarily used to deliver electrical power from an overhead power distribution system to residential buildings. Here are some common applications of duplex overhead service drop cable:
Residential power supply:
Duplex overhead service drop cable is commonly used to supply power to residential homes in urban and suburban areas. The cable is installed between the utility pole and the weatherhead or meter base on the building, providing a safe and reliable connection to the electrical grid.
Temporary power supply:
Duplex overhead service drop cable can be used to provide temporary power to construction sites or outdoor events. The cable is installed between a temporary power source and the location where power is needed, providing a temporary power supply until a permanent solution can be installed.
Duplex overhead service drop cable can be used to supply power to low-voltage lighting systems in residential and commercial areas. The cable is installed between the transformer and the lighting fixtures, providing a safe and efficient power source for lighting.
Stranding the Conductors:
The first step in constructing duplex service drop aluminum conductor is stranding the individual conductors together. The conductors are twisted together to form a stranded cable, which is stronger and more flexible than a single solid conductor.
After stranding, the cable is covered with a protective jacket made of a weather-resistant material such as polyethylene. The jacket protects the cable from moisture, sunlight, and other environmental factors that can cause damage.
Each of the individual conductors in the cable is then insulated to prevent electrical leakage and ensure safety. The insulation is typically made of a material such as polyvinyl chloride (PVC) or cross-linked polyethylene (XLPE).
