Kerite (Seymour, CT) announced a full line of preassembled aerial cable for use between substation getaway riser cable and the circuit’s open-wire distribution portion, for express feeder circuits with site limitations, and for installation along space-constrained alleys and backyard boundaries and areas subject to tree-related storm damage. Kerite’s preassembled aerial cable is composed of three shielded conductor cables banded together plus a messenger wire. The conductor, either aluminum or copper, is insulated with the company’s Permashield semiconducting layer and discharge resistant EPR system, which is used by Kerite on cable designs up to 138 kV. The cable’s insulation shield:
- Is a free-stripping design
- Consists of a 5 mil cupro-nickel or copper tape and/or copper concentric wires.
- May also have an overall jacket (single conductor cable).
