ADSS cable is loose tube stranded. Fibers, 250m , are positioned into a loose tube made of high modulus plastics. The tubes are filled with
a water-resistant filling compound. The tubes (and fillers) are stranded around a FRP (Fiber Reinforced Plastic) as a non-metallic central
strength member into a compact and circular cable core. After the cable core is filled with filling compound. it is covered with thin PE
(polyethylene) inner sheath. After stranded layer of aramid yarns are applied over the inner sheath as strength member, the cable is
completed with PE or AT (anti-tracking) outer sheath.
Can be installed without shutting off the power
Excellent AT performance, The maximum inductive at the operating point of AT sheath can reach 25kV
Light weight and small diameter reducing the load caused by ice and wind and the load on towers and backprops
Large span lengths and the largest span is over 1000m
Good performance of tensile strength and temperature
The design life span is 30 years
The actual status of overhead power lines is taken into full consideration when ADSS cable is being designed. For overhead power lines under 110kV, PE outer sheath is applied. FOR power lines equal to or over 110kV, AT outer sheath is applied. The dedicate design of aramid quantity and stranding process can satisfy the demand on various spans.
ADSS cable complies with Standard IEEE P 1222 as well as IEC 60794-1.
Three Kinds of ADSS Cable Cross-section diagram
1.Single Jacket 50-150 meter Span ADSS fiber optic cable
Single Jacket ADSS fiber optic cable is adopt to Stranded S-Z structure,In the central is FRP strength member,all fibers are positioned into PBT loose tube with different colors.It is available a Span from 50 meters to 150 meters. The maximum allowable tension range is 1000~3500N.
2.Double jacket Uni-tube ADSS fiber optic cable
3.Double Jacket Stranded ADSS Fiber Optical Cable
the fiber loose tubes are surrounding around a central strength member (usually as FRP material). And the rest parts are similar to the central tube structure. This type is able to obtain longer fiber length. Although the diameter and weight is relatively big, it is better to be deployed for large span
