Double Jacket, All-Dielectric, Self-Supporting (ADSS) Aerial Loose Tube Fiber Optic Cable

PowerGuide® is your prime cabling solution for high-performance aerial applications, including power transmission and distribution networks, with excellent long-span capability up to 3,281 feet (1,000 meters or more). Each PowerGuide® cable is custom designed to ensure exceptional long- term reliability and performance.

PowerGuide® Tracking Resistant (TR) Cable

Because ADSS cables are often installed near energized power conductors, we offer two PowerGuide® outer jacket materials. For electric field space potentials up to 12 kV, PowerGuide® cable features a polyethylene sheath. For space potentials up to 25 kV, PowerGuide® Tracking Resistant cable features a specially formulated jacket that resists tracking (dry band arcing). Contact us for a complete system analysis to determine which PowerGuide® cable design to employ.
