    The Duplex Aluminum Service Drop Cable comes with two concentric-lay stranded conductors, one insulated phase conductor, and one bare neutral messenger.  Aluminum components of the cable are aluminum 1350-H19, an alloy that maximizes the conductivity of aluminum while adding strength for mechanical efficiency.  The phase conductor is insulated with a standard polyethylene or crosslinked polyethylene jacket to protect the conductor from excessive dryness, moisture, and sunlight.  The cable can handle up to 600 volts at temperatures between 75° and 90°C depending on the insulation type.

    The Duplex Aluminum Service Drop Cable can be used as an overhead line, most commonly used for lighting.  This cable is often used for street lighting and outdoor lighting situations.  The cable can be used in construction areas for temporary service to power lightning and machinery as well.  The option of standard polyethylene or crosslinked polyethylene insulation depends on the climate and weather conditions where the cable will be used.  The standard polyethylene insulation can handle temperatures up to 75°C.  This option is preferred in mild climatic regions where high heat is not an issue.  Crosslinked polyethylene can handle temperatures up to 90°C and is preferred in more harsh regions such as desert or tropical regions.
