Aerial Bundled Cables help in the provision of electricity to building from the transformer. When it comes down to LV-ABC accessories that are available on There are mainly two types of ABC cables, the service cables, and the Distribution Cables. It is important you are aware of the fact that there are two routes to take during installation; on building walls and on poles.

Advantages of the ABC Technology

  • It is very easy to be maintained and repaired just in case of an accident or failure
  • It is very easy to be installed and it is light to handle (a variety of accessories)
  • Compared to the traditional PVC, superior insulation (XLPE) is used.
  • There is less overloading as a result of non-adherence of ice in water
  • There is reduced risk of fire, just in case at any point there is a broken line
  • The messenger is earthed in case of failure
  • There is a high level of protection against contact (trees, birds)
  • Reduced risk of electrical shocks, just in case of contact with a human (insulated conductors)
  • There is provision of a better security compared to the bare overhead lines OHL
  • There is a reduced safety distance between the other lines and buildings
  • Rather than copper, a relatively low-cost Aluminum is used.
  • They are a very affordable option compared to buried cables.

It is vital you are aware of the fact that multiple conductors are what make the bundle. There are four, which include one neutral messenger and three phases. The F5 conductor is more often used for street lighting, and it can be found in the bundle too.

You already know that an LV cable is one of the issues that we are currently dealing with in the electrical and telecommunications sectors. In this post, all of the advantages of each will discussed. So if you would like to know the different advantages and disadvantages of this type of cable, both for broadband and baseband. Let’s start then. LV cables are used for networking and other kinds of telecommunications and electrical uses.

LV networks with insulated conductors have many advantages over bare conductor lines.

The voltage drops are reduced due to the low value of linear reaction from the voltage.

The quality of service is improved because:

  • isolated cables are subtracted from accidental contact with foreign bodies;
  • intervention in operation, especially in live work, is facilitated;
  • in case of rupture of supports or the fuse device of the suspensions, there is maintenance in the temporary operation of the network.

The construction is simplified because the regulation does not impose minimum distances horizontal barriers (such as buildings and trees), which translates to easier installation of these LV cable systems.  For example, in forested areas, the reduction of the pruning width to the strict minimum necessary for the passage of vehicles used for construction and operation. The ease of building a new network should also be highlighted when it comes to building new wiring systems with LV cables.

LV cables can also be cheaper. Although LV cables are the best conductor of electricity, it is rarely used. This is due to the high price of these wires. Copper wires drive a little less well but are much cheaper compared to silver. The most common metals for the conduction of electricity are copper and aluminum. Copper conducts better than aluminum, is more flexible, has the higher tensile strength and can also be welded more easily. The disadvantages of copper: it is more expensive and heavier than aluminum.

LV cables are the most commonly used network cables on the market right now and because of all of the advantages of each, it is not hard to see why.

What is an LV cable exactly?

The core of the LV cable is located in the center of the cable. In turn, it can be solid, formed in this case by a single thread, or it can be formed by several threads. It is the one in charge of transporting the electronic signals that constitute the information.

The dielectric is an insulating layer that is responsible for separating the core of the wire mesh. If they touch each other, a short circuit will occur and the noise or signals that are lost in the mesh will pass through the copper wire.

There are obvious advantages to using LV cables as a driver. These advantages are the reason why LV cables are among others used as high voltage cables. The LV cables are: Less heavy, based on the load, LV has the same conductivity as copper, etc. As you can see LV cable wires are way more advantageous than other kinds of wired systems. And it is only natural for electrical and telecommunications companies to deploy LV cables in their sectors.
