Aluminum 600V URD cable is designed for use in secondary distribution circuits, where installed in duct or direct burial applications. Maximum operating temperature is not to exceed 90°C in wet and dry locations. Voltage rating is 600 volts. As an option, this cable can provided pre-pulled into duct.
Aluminum 600V URD cable has a concentric strand or compressed 1350-H19 series aluminum conductor. Conductors are cabled together, with surface printing for identification. The neutral conductor has a yellow stripe.
Aluminum 600V URD cable has a black cross linked polyethylene (XLP) insulation.
Duplex Aluminum Conductor Direct Burial 1350 Series 600V URD
This is another 600 V rated cable with two electric conductors hence the name Duplex Aluminum Conductor cable. This cable has properties which rightly make it a cable for secondary power distribution.
Aluminum conductors used for this cable are designed in either concentric strand or in compressed series. The advantage with a compressed conductor is the reduced bulkiness. Compressed conductors are also stronger and tougher. But the stranded conductors are highly flexible and tend to have lower electrical resistance. Stranded conductors therefore reduce power loss and are also easier to use in applications where flexibility is vital.
Aluminum 600 V URD cable has its two conductors coupled together and surface printing helps in identification of the conductors. The color for the neutral conductor is always yellow stripped.
Versatile insulation system made of cross linked black polyethylene material helps to secure the cable conductors. This insulation is water tight, repulsive to corrosive substance, resistant to oil, heat and flame. Cross linking a polyethylene helps to achieve an excellent strength that makes the material suitable for covering this cable used in harsh conditions like direct burial installation.
According to its design, Aluminum 600V URD is fitted for use in secondary distribution circuits. Its good electrical conductivity, versatility and sturdy insulation are properties which enable it to be used for both duct and direct burial installations.In these adverse applications, the temperature may go high above the normal ranges but thanks to Aluminum 600V URD cable which has a maximum operation temperature of 90 degrees Celsius in both wet and dry places.
Since it has two conductors, this cable makes circuit connections easier, neater and more efficient. It has a voltage power rating of 600 volts, good for medium size utilities. The cable is also designed with an option, provision of pre-pulling into duct.
