Hendrix Aerial offers spacer cable systems for substations
By Anthony Capkun
Hendrix Aerial—a Marmon Utility LLC company—is offering Hendrix Spacer Cable Systems. Spacer cables allow for multiple circuits to be on each pole, reducing right-of-way requirements at substation exits and along the distribution line where multiple circuits are required. Furthermore, over- or under-building spacer cable systems in substation exits can greatly reduce the cost of adding capacity. In addition to saving space, the cable covering and the mechanical strength of spacer cable systems provides increased reliability on the feeder circuits at substation exits. A spacer cable system consists of a messenger cable that supports the structure, polyethylene spacers to hold the cable across spans, and covered conductor cable.
