Underground distribution cable
TANO cable’s Underground Distribution Cable (URD) is predominantly used for primary underground distribution in conduit systems suitable for use in wet or dry locations, direct burial, underground duct, and where exposed to sunlight. To be used at 15,000 volts or less and at conductor temperatures not to exceed 90°C for normal operation.
Standards & References：TANO cable 15kV HI-DRI Primary UD TRXLP Cable meets or exceeds the following ASTM specifications:
B3: Soft Annealed Copper Wire
B8: Concentric-Lay-Stranded Copper Conductors, Hard, Medium-Hard or Soft
Construction：The cable is composed of a moisture blocked reverse lay, compressed stranded soft drawn copper, covered by a semi-conducting cross-linked polyethylene strand shield, a tree-retardant cross-linked polyethylene primary insulation, and a semi-conducting cross-linked polyethylene insulation shield. Conductors are available with 100% insulation level. A concentric neutral of bare copper wires and a sunlight resistant, -40°C rated, insulating linear low density polyethylene jacket are applied over the insulation shield. The cable is identified by surface print on the jacket and with the lightning bolt symbol for supply cables indented in the jacket. Has red extruded stripes.
