Tree Wire, Overhead Cable, 5 KV, AAC/XLP (ANSI/ICEA S-66-524)
AAC (1350-H19), AAAC or ACSR conductors, concentrically stranded. Available with black or gray trackresistant, high-density polyethylene (HD) or black track-resistant crosslinked polyethylene (XLP) covering.
Used for primary and secondary overhead distribution where limited space is available or desired for rights-of-way. Installed the same as bare conductors, however, covering is effective in preventing direct shorts and instantaneous flashovers should tree limbs or other objects contact conductors in such close proximity. Tree Wire - Used for spans where trees crowd the right-of-way, such as in wooded residential areas, when a minimum of interference with the environment is desired. Covering minimizes power outages due to conductor contact with tree limbs, reducing the need for frequent or severe trimming. Covered Aerial MV Cable - Installed with other Covered Aerial MV cables and a supporting messenger through a series of spacemaintaining devices (spacers). The resulting close-proximity configuration minimizes the amount of space and hardware required for line installation, particularly useful in congested areas.
