Price (Per FT.)
Aluminum Conductor 15KV URD cable is primary used for underground distribution, in direct burial or installed in conduit. 15KV URD cable is suitable for use in wet or dry locations. URD cable is to be used at 15,000 volts or less and not to exceed 90°C temperature in normal use.
Aluminum Conductor 15KV URD cable has a solid or compressed concentric strand soft drawn 1350 series aluminum conductor per ASTM.
Aluminum Conductor 15KV URD cable has an extruded thermoset semiconducting shield, which is free
stripping from the conductor and bonded to the insulation.
Aluminum Conductor 15KV URD cable has naturally high dielectric strength TR-XLPE insulation. There is also extruded thermoset semiconducting insulation shield. Optional EPR insulation is available upon request.
Aluminum Conductor 15KV URD cable has a concentric neutral shield consisting of solid bare copper wires helically applied and uniformly spaced over the insulation shield.
Aluminum Conductor 15KV URD cable has a black jacket of linear lows density polyethylene (LDPE), which is sunlight, abrasion and heat resistant. The jacket has 3 red stripes, the NESC lightning bolt and sequential footage markings.
Frequently Asked Questions - Aluminum conductor 15kv mv105
What are the temperature specifications of the Aluminum conductor 15kv mv105?
The Aluminum conductor 15kv mv105 can be used continuously at 105°C. It can withstand 140°C when it is a case of emergency overload and even 250°C for short circuit conditions.
What are the common applications that the Aluminum conductor 15kv mv105 is used for?
This cable is suitable for both wet and dry locations where direct burial is required. It can also be installed in underground ducts and open air. It can be used in power circuits that require15,000 volts or less.
What is the advantage of using aluminum conductor for this cable?
Aluminum conductors are light weight when compared to copper cables. It is easier and more flexible to work with which greatly improves the job efficiency. Aluminum conductors are preferred for use in great distances as iteasy to install and maintain. Copper conductors of the same specifications would require more support for the cable to be secured.
Do I have to be worried about “cold creep” when I use this aluminum conductor?
“Cold creep” or “cold flow” is the instance where the elasticity of the conductor is affected slowly over a period of time. Usually the conductor expands when it is warm and contracts when it is cold. However, with each warm and cool cycle, there is a reduction in the tightness of the wiring which may result in loose connections. However, this phenomenon can be reduced when the wires are installed properly and with regular maintenance.
How is the Aluminum conductor 15kv mv105 constructed?
It comes with 1350 series Aluminum for the conductor with Class B stranding as per ASTM standards. When it is mentioned 15kv, then the cable would require a shield. The insulation can be EPR-based in accordance with ICEA S-97-682 and it has semi-conducting properties. Finally, it is covered with either a PVC or an EPR jacket.
What does the “MV” stand for inAluminum conductor 15kv mv105?
MV stands for medium voltage which is in accordance with UL 1072. MV cables are generally used as the primary power feeder in all kinds of commercial and electrical projects. MV cables can be used in both wet and dry locations.
What are the various factors that the cable is resistant to?
The Aluminum conductor 15kv mv105has a sunlight resistant jacket and a heat and moisture resistant insulation. The cable has passed the IEEE 383 flame test and the IEEE 1202 flame test.
