LV & MV aerial bunch cables

Aerial bundle cables, or simply ABC, are cables for overhead lines and combine multiple single core cables together.

APAR manufactures low-voltage, XLPE-insulated, heavy-duty cables. XLPE cables have higher electrical strength retention, short circuit rating and better electrical, mechanical and thermal properties. The cables are precision-engineered to meet specific requirements and high service performance. Moreover, XLPE cables have better resistance to moisture and to surge currents. XLPE Cables also have higher cable operating temperatures at 900°C, and short circuit temperatures at 250°C.

Multi core cables can be used for analogue and digital signals, as well as power distribution. They are often used to simplify the physical setup of a system and to provide a neater connection between two pieces of equipment. We have also developed higher-ampacity XLPE cables suitable for maximum continuous operating temperatures of 105°C.
Application These cables are mainly used for low-voltage power distribution by utilities supplying power to industrial and commercial enterprises, and for various equipment, large motors and other connected loads.
Characteristics Suitable for use on AC 1 phase or 3 phase (earthed or unearthed) for low voltage up to and including 1100 V.These cables can be used on DC systems for rated voltage up to and including 1500 V on earth. The inner/outer sheaths of PVC/PE/FR/FRLS/LSOH are available as per customer requirements. The armouring of single core cables with aluminium flat strip/round wire or tape is provided. For multi core cables, the GI Steel can be in flat strip, round wire or tape.The conductor used is generally Class 2 stranded compacted. 8000 series aluminium can also be provided.
Applicable standards I.S. 7098 PART 1 , IEC 60502-1 and BS 5467 specifications for the voltage range of 600/1000 volts and 1100 volts. They can also be manfuactured as per AS/NZS 4026 & AS/NZS : 5000.1
Product range 1 core armoured, unarmoured, PVC/PE sheathed cables 600/1000 V & 1900/3300 V up to and including 1000 mm²2 core armoured, unarmoured, PVC/PE sheathed cables 600/1000 V & 1900/3300 V up to and including 400mm²3 core armoured, unarmoured, PVC/PE sheathed cables 600/1000 V & 1900/3300 V up to and including 400mm²4 core armoured, unarmoured, PVC/PE sheathed cables 600/1000 V & 1900/3300 V up to and including 500mm²2,3 and 4 core cables with reduced neutral conductor: both armoured and unarmoured. PVC sheathed cables 600/1000 V and 1900/3300 V up to and including 400 mm²5 core cables up to and including 150 mm²
Advantages Long service life with defect-free insulation. Lower laying cost due to comparatively smaller diameter of cable and higher weight. Lower installation charges, as the diameter of the cable is smaller, with a smaller bending radius, which requires less space for cable laying.
