Aerial Bundle Cables (ABC)
Aerial Bundle Cables, often referred to as Aerial Bundled Conductors or simply ABC, are low voltage cables for overhead line power, so called for combining multiple single core cables together. With applications including temporary power distribution to street lighting and secondary pole-to-pole service cables, they are lightweight stranded aluminium conductors, both single core and multi-cores, covered with a UV-resistant XLPE insulation. Whilst Aerial Bundle Cables are used in rural power distribution in some countries, they are more commonly used in temporary power installations such as on construction sites. As insulated cables they are often preferred to bare conductors which are installed and separated by air gaps but where sparks and shorts in the event of high winds may cause resulting bushfires in dry climates or risk nearby property. The XLPE insulation material allows the ABC to be tightly bundled with just a bare neutral – additional steel wire supports similar to those in ACSR can also be incorporated as catenary wires .
Our Low Voltage ABC are manufactured in accordance with BS7870 and have a voltage rating of 0.6/1kV. With the insulation it also meets Class II according to IEC 61140 in protecting against electric shock. Aerial Bundle Cables have an operating temperature range of -40oC to +80oC and can be installed in temperatures as low as -20oC.
Specifying ABC for overhead line power
Determining the suitability of Aerial Bundle Cables for your overhead line application and the accompanying cable size calculation can be supported by our technical team. They will consider the application, the installation environment, and the regulations of the project country, and will guide your decision to specify Aerial bundle cables or other OHL products along with accompanying cable accessories.
