ASWire® (Telecom Copper Cables | Copper Wires and Drop Wires | Aerial Service Wire)
Multi-pair, self-supporting Aerial Service Wires (ASW) are used for subscriber lines in exchange plant; single-pair is often used for lateral runs from an aerial plant. In both single and multi-pair types, the wire core is laid parallel to a solid steel support wire and jacketed in an integral extrusion to form a “figure-8” configuration utilizing a 0.109″ solid, extra high strength steel support member.
Conductors: Solid annealed copper in 19, 22 and 24
Insulation: Each conductor is insulated with solid high-density color coded polyethylene resulting in excellent electrical and mechanical properties. Standard color codes are used for pair identification with color compounds chosen for electrical balance and permanency.
Assembly: Individual conductors are carefully twisted into pairs in a manner designed to minimize resistance unbalance. In multi-pair constructions, pair twist lays are varied to minimize crosstalk and meet capacitance unbalance requirements. Twisted pairs are formed into a firm, round core.
Outer Jacket: A black, high-molecular-weight, polyethylene provides a tough, flexible protective covering that withstands exposure to sunlight, atmospheric temperatures, and stresses encountered in standard installations. The steel support wire is jacketed in an integral extrusion with the core.
