The LT/LV AB cables (aerial bunched) cable is a very novel concept in overhead power distribution, as compared with conventional bare conductor in overhead distribution system, AB cables provides higher safety, reliability, lower power losses and ultimate economy by reducing installation, maintenance and operative cost. This superior system is ideal for rural distribution and especially attractive for installation in difficult terrains such as highly areas, forest areas ,coastal areas etc. These cables are designed, manufactured & tested conforming to IS: 14255 & other international specifications. AB cables is also considered as choice for power distribution in congested urban areas in developing urban complex AB cables is a better choice because of its flexibility for re-routing as demanded by changes in urban development plan.
AB cables are highly reliable and insulation has been developed to withstand extreme cold and intense sunlight. Disturbance and faults occur five to ten times more often in open wires lines than in AB cable lines. There is no risk in touching the live cable and the insulation reduces the number of short circuits and overvoltage faults in overhead cables during thunderstorms. Few hardware accessories are needed which are different for different size of cables. Streets can be lit only at little extra conductor for lighting. The cable can be supplied with one or two insulated conductors for street lighting.
In comparison with bare overhead distribution line AB Cable has very high reliability in maintaining power services because power and neutral conductors are insulated with the best dielectric, resulting in the following advantages:
LV AB Cables manufactured by Dynamic Cables meets the requirements of all international standards like ASTM, BS, IEC, NFC, etc.
