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.
Quadruplex Aluminum Conductor Direct Burial 1350 Series 600V URD
This Aluminum URD cable has four conductors hence the name Quadruplex Aluminum conductor. It is 600 Volts rated thus suitable for low and medium voltage utilities. This cable is also designed for direct burial and has unique properties to appropriate it for its areas of applications.
It is constructed using either concentric strand or compressed conductors. Compressed conductors comprise of 1350-H19 series of conductors, this compression process produces strong and stable conductors which are not easy to bend compared to the concentric stranded type. Compressed conductors are fit for systems where strong conductors are needed while stranded conductors fit applications where twisting and flexibility is needed. These conductors are coupled together and surface printing for identification is put on the cable cover. Neutral conductor is stripped yellow.
Aluminum URD quadruplex cable has a black insulation system made from cross linked polyethylene (XLP). Cross linked thermoset are stronger, they are more reinforced and reliable.This insulation is water tight and resistant to sunlight, tear and abrasion. It therefore provides the cable with security against destructive agents in the applications.
Aluminum 600V URDQuadruplex cable is designed to help in wiring secondary power distribution circuits. These circuits wired using the cable can be installed either in duct or directly buried in the ground. The cable strength, versatility and enduring insulation make it to work well in these harsh applications. Even in adverse temperatures, Aluminum 600 URDquadruplex cable serves. It has a maximum operation temperature of 90 degrees Celsius and can work in both wet and dry places. The cable has a voltage power rating of 600 volts, good for medium and small size loads. The cable is also designed with an option, provision of pre-pulling into duct.

Frequently Asked Questions - QuadruplexAluminum URD
Where do I apply QuadruplexAluminum URD and what are its uses?
QuadruplexAluminum URD is mainly applied as a secondary distribution circuits. It is used for underground service at 600 volts and lesser. It can be used for safe underground cable connections that can be installed in ducts and direct burial in earth. It can withstand a maximum of 90°C temperature to operate and should never exceed. It can be used in wet and dry places.It is long lasting and can be used in such place where heat, oil, and ozone are present. It is also chemical resistant. Due to its usage underground, it does not tear and is abrasion resistant.
What are thestandards and specifications of QuadruplexAluminum URD?
QuadruplexAluminum URD conductor 600V cable meets the following standards and specifications.
What is Concentric Stranding and how does it help protect the cable?
ThisAluminum 600V URD cable has concentric stranding. Stranded conductors are manufactured in a series of configurations. The most common and the best one is the concentric stranding or true stranding. The other stranded conductors are unilay concentric, equilay concentric, and unidirectional concentric.
You will find in concentric stranding a center wire that is bounded by one or more layers helically worn in a geometric pattern, reversed alternatively and increasing the length of the cable. These geometric patterns are produced in 7, 19, 37, 61 strands, which actually provides protection for the cable. The strands are maintained in position throughout the entire length of the cable.
Another advantage of concentric stranding is the tight diameter that is maintained throughout the conductor. This type of concentric constructions provides a uniform surface which goes well with all types of insulation, especially thin walls and provides maximum performance of the cable.
What do I need a cross linked polyethylene insulation?
All Aluminum 600V URD cables has black cross linked polyethylene insulation. Cross linked polyethylene is commonly abbreviated XLP. It is a type of polyethylene with cross links. It is used predominantly in building services, pipe work and insulation for high tension, high voltage electrical cables. If you get to know about cross linked polyethylene insulation cables, you will never go back on other cables.
You need a cross linked polyethylene insulation cables because they:
