Quadruplex Overhead Service Drop Cable is a type of electrical cable used to supply power from an overhead utility pole to a residential or commercial building. It is called "quadruplex" because it consists of four insulated conductors twisted together, and "overhead" because it is installed above ground.
Quadruplex overhead service drop cable is primarily used to deliver electrical power from an overhead power distribution system to residential and commercial buildings. Here are some of the common applications of quadruplex overhead service drop cable:
Quadruplex overhead service drop cable is commonly used to supply power to residential homes in rural or 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.
Quadruplex overhead service drop cable is also used to supply power to commercial buildings such as stores, offices, and factories. The cable is installed in a similar manner as in residential applications, providing a cost-effective and efficient solution for power delivery.
Quadruplex overhead service drop cable is widely used in agricultural applications, providing power to irrigation systems, livestock facilities, and other agricultural operations in rural areas. The cable’s durability and resistance to weather conditions make it ideal for these types of applications.
Quadruplex overhead service drop cable is commonly used to supply power to streetlights in residential and commercial areas. The cable is installed between the utility pole and the streetlight, providing a safe and reliable power source for lighting public areas.
The first step in constructing quadruplex overhead service drop cable 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.
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).
Quadruplex service drop cable meets or exceeds the following ASTM specifications;
B-230 Aluminum Wire,1350-H19 for electrical Purposes.
B-231 Aluminum conductors,Concentric-Lay-Stranded.
B-232 Aluminum conductors,Concentric-Lay-Stranded,Coated Steel Reinforced(ACSR).
Service Drop cable meets or exceeds all applicable requirements of ICEA-S-76-474
NOTE:Designated sizes are:ACSR 6/1 diameter equivalent and AAC with equivalent resistivity per ASTM B-399 for 6201.
Conductor temperature of 90 oC XLPE,75 oC for Poly;ambient temperatures of 40 oC; emissivity 0.9;2ft/sec/wind in sun.To determine current ampacity by conductor size,please consult The National Electric Code,latest edition.
