Product Description

Optical Phase Conductor (OPPC) is used as an alternative telecommunications solution when there is no existing ground wire, meaning Optical Ground Wire (OPGW) is not a viable option. The basic construction is similar to conventional OPGW, only it is designed to simulate the mechanical and electrical characteristics of the phase wire it replaces. Unlike OPGW, where the cable is not carrying continuous current, OPPC is energized along high voltage power lines. Therefore it requires specially adapted splice boxes and insulators to accommodate the live line conditions.

AFL can design a cable to accommodate your precise application. To do so, we need the  properties of the phase conductor you are seeking to replace. With that, we can do the rest.
