• Superior Essex Cable BDW A Solid Annealed Copper Cable

    Product Details

    BDW A is a filled, double-jacketed buried wire intended for direct burial applications. Applications include distribution circuits and service entrance wires. BDW A is designed to withstand installation stresses. BDW A is filled with an ETPR compound, which completely coats each insulated conductor and fills the air space between conductors. BDW A is recommended for non-gopher areas. Each conductor is insulated with solid polyolefin in distinctive colors. The insulation of the tip conductor is marked with a stripe of the mating ring insulation color to reduce the possibility of splitting pairs during installation.

    Features:
    • Polyethylene inner jacket
    • Polyethylene outer jacket
    • Dual rip cords

    Benefits:
    • Provides additional mechanical and moisture protection
    • Provides tough, flexible, protective covering that withstands exposure to sunlight, atmospheric temperatures, ground chemicals and stresses expected in standard installations
    • Facilitates jacket removal

    Specifications:
    Conductor: Solid annealed copper

    Insulation: Polyolefin

    Core Assembly: Individual conductor dimensions are tightly controlled to limit resistance unbalance of twisted pairs; pair twist lays are varied to minimize crosstalk and meet capacitance unbalance limits

    Filling Compound: Wire core is completely filled with 80°C ETPR compound, filling the air spaces between insulated conductors

    Inner Jacket: Polyethylene

    Shield: Smooth, copolymer-coated, 8 mil aluminum tape applied longitudinally over inner jacket and bonded to outer jacket; space under the tape is flooded to eliminate all air space

    Outer Jacket: Black, polyethylene

    Standards Compliance:
    • ANSI/ICEA S-86-634-2011
    • RoHS-compliant

    Applications:
    • Direct burial
    • Distribution circuits and service entrance wires
