Spacer Cable Systems enhance limited-space substations.

July 2, 2012

Intended for substation applications, Spacer Cable Systems consist of messenger cable that supports structure, polyethylene spacers to hold cable across spans, and covered conductor cable. Spacer cable reduces right-of-way requirements at substation exits, promotes efficient use of limited space in substations, and increases reliability on critical feeder circuits at substation exits. After being installed and attached to messenger, spacers support, separate, and clamp phase conductors. Read More
