Hornet - Bare and PVC
The Hornet Overhead Line range is an All-Aluminium Conductor (AAC) manufactured specifically for the Railway industry and holds Network Rail Approval. It is designed to be used as a bonding cable for rail overhead line applications.
Bonding cable also acts as an earthing wire, providing a route to Earth from the Power supply and ensures electrical continuity. This provides part of a fail-safe in the event of failure.
