Milford, N.H.-based Hendrix Wire & Cable, a provider of overhead and underground power distribution products, has released spacer cable systems.
According to Hendrix, the company's spacer cable systems can help reduce the amount of vegetation that must be removed when clearing right-of-ways for distribution circuits, because spacer cables are more compact and can withstand temporary contact with branches without causing outages. Reducing right-of-way clearance by 20 feet can result in up to 6.5 tons of carbon dioxide per mile being removed from the atmosphere every year.
A spacer cable circuit is confined to less than one foot, which reduces trimming requirements and allows multiple circuits to be placed on a single pole, or even the same side of a single pole. The result can often lead to new circuits being added to existing poles without additional vegetation removal, according to Hendrix.
Spacer cable systems from Hendrix are designed with a covering that limits the electrical charge on the surface, which allows temporary contact with branches without causing a failure, Hendrix explains. All Hendrix polymer components are made of 100% No.2 HDPE recyclable plastic.
