Aerial Drop Wire (CCSR) - Copper Telephone Cable
PVC insulated copper covered steel reinforced drop wire cables are designed for extending and open wire line or distribution cable pair from a pole and/or cable terminal to a building.
Two round 18.0 AWG solid 30% conductivity extra high strength copper/steel wires serve dually as conductors and strength members. Optimized tensile breaking strength and elongation assure superior toughness against ice loading and impact from falling ice-coated tree limbs and other mechanical shocks.
Conductors are laid in a parallel configuration and covered with flame and abrasion resistant, black polyvinyl chloride compound that serves as both insulation and jacket. One raised ridge tracer on one edge of the jacket provides conductor polarity identification.
