AFL offers complete solutions for traditional and new applications for electric utilities

Electric utilities have relied on AFL for over 30 years. From transmission and substation accessories to cable and fiber optic hardware, AFL’s solutions improve the reliability of critical electrical and optical infrastructure used for the transmission and distribution of electricity. That same infrastructure also supports fiber-to-the-home networks for delivering new services to your electric utility customers. 
FTTx Network Solutions
Implementing these state-of-the-art fiber optic networks, known in the industry as FTTx , on your existing electrical and optical infrastructure requires a knowledgeable, reliable and experienced partner. Turn to AFL, the only provider that offers a complete portfolio that includes end-to-end passive infrastructure.
Transmission and Compression Solutions
AFL has a complete portfolio of fiber optic cable and hardware for basic, high tension or long span aerial installations plus services designed to meet the most demanding transmission and distribution environments. We provide a full line of all-dielectric self-supporting (ADSS) aerial cables, Optical Ground Wire (OPGW), loose tube cable, customized solutions and supporting hardware and accessories.

Featuring the industry’s most complete lines of compression accessories, AFL offers dead ends, jumper terminals, joints, T-taps, repair sleeves and terminal connectors. These are designed to operate, regardless of the electrical load, at a temperature lower than that of the conductor. AFL offers a complete line of compression accessories including:
  • Standard Compression accessories for ACSR, AAC, AAAC, ACAR, EHS ACSR, AWAC, Alumoweld® and steel ground wire conductors
  • Quick Compress® accessories for all four conductor types—ACSR, AAC, AAAC and ACAR—without separate fittings for each conductor type
  • HiTemp® Compression  accessories for applications exceeding operating temperatures above 120°C (248°F)  
  • IMPACCT® (Implosive Accessory Technology) for ACSR and ACSS high-temperature conductors up to 765 kV
  • 3M™ ACCR Conductors for improved heat dissipation for conductor operation up to 250°C
  • ACCC Conductors for carrying up to twice the current of a conventional ACSR conductor of the same diameter and similar weight
Substation Solutions
With more than 80 years of design and manufacturing expertise, our Dossert® product line offers a wide range of substation accessories for deployment by electric power utilities. Our substation products feature superior product performance designed to improve the reliability of the critical electrical and optical infrastructure used for the transmission and distribution of electricity.
AFL’s substation accessories are made for low voltage up to 765 kV applications that involve cable, pipe, flat or tubular bus and integral web connections. Complementing the entire substation family, Swage grounding, bus and cable accessories use a compression technology process called "swaging" that enables installation of aluminum bus accessories without the need of a welder. These Swage products allow the electric utility to install the accessories faster and more efficiently with lower installation costs over the welding process.  AFL is your full-line supplier for all types of accessories—welded, bolted and Swage applications—available in bronze or aluminum materials.
