- Spacer Cable offers compact configuration and reduced clearance requirements
Spacer Cable has been used by utilities for many years to improve the reliability and power quality of primary distribution systems while making them more resistant to storm damage. The cable design, system strength, and compact configuration can also serve to address other concerns that can crop up on a utilities distribution system. The compact configuration and reduced clearance requirements allow for multiple circuits to be installed on a single pole, and thus combating right of way problems and saving money by reducing the number of poles required. Over or under building Spacer Cable Systems in substation exits, alleyways, and feeder circuits can greatly reduce the cost of adding capacity.
- Hendrix Wire & Cable Spacer Cable offers ideal power quality for environmentally sensitive areas
Overall the spacer cable system strength makes Hendrix Spacer Cable ideal for long spans of up to 1500 feet. The ability to span rivers, freeways, marshes, and lakes provides a cost-effective, environmentally sensitive solution to difficult design problems. What's more, the close spacing of each individual phase conductor results in lower total line impedance and maintains voltage, reducing the need for voltage improvement equipment on long runs.
Hendrix Wire & Cable Spacer Cable Systems come equipped with a conductor covering that is able to withstand temporary contact with tree branches and other vegetation, thus reducing outages and improving power quality. This, along with the compact configuration of the system, greatly reduces the need for vegetation removal during circuit installation, cutting tree trimming costs by 50 to 80 percent. Additionally, wildlife is protected from exposure to lethal currents.
