CIC cable with a full neutral provides reliable circuit security in underground distribution systems. They provide greater mechanical protection against accidental dig-in than the direct burial UD cables normally installed.
The Okolene® duct protects the cable in adverse soil conditions (stone, coarse backfill, corrosive soil conditions, etc.).
The Okoguard CIC cable is commonly installed where the ground above the cable will be finished with asphalt paving, landscaping, structures, etc.
URO-CIC is particularly advantageous when used in landscaped residential areas since system expansions may be accomplished without disturbing the lawn and shrubbery.
Okoguard is Okonite's registered trade name for its exclusive ethylene-propylene rubber (EPR) based, thermosetting compound, whose optimum balance of electrical and physical properties is unequaled in other solid dielectrics. Okoguard insulation, with the distinctive red color and a totally integrated EPR system, provides the optimum balance of electrical and physical properties for long, problem free service.
The triple tandem extrusion of the screens with the insulation provides optimum electrical characteristics.
Okonite URO cables are factory installed within a polyethylene conduit. This URO-CIC (Cable-in-Conduit) has many of the advantages of a jacketed cable provided the ends of the conduit are sealed.
The bare copper concentric wires are uniformly spaced around the insulation screen and are sufficient in number to supply full conductivity of the power conductor. The flexible polyethylene conduit provides an economical factory assembled cable-in-conduit with mechanical protection against accidental dig-in, and easier installation.
