A Look at ADSS Cables

ADSS Cables, or All-Dielectric Self-Supporting Cables, are cables that are capable of supporting themselves without needing any conductive metal elements.


Why is this important? Well, this makes them able to avoid conducting electricity so they don't need any other elements to protect them from the electricity in electrical wires, making them very valuable for that type of installations.


Since they can be installed along the electric transmission lines they allow cost and trouble saving for electric companies, therefore they tend to use them a lot in their projects.


Since they are so strong and self-supported ADSS Cables also can be installed in reasonably big distances between poles, they are also cheaper than OPGW cables.


So all in all, ADSS Cables are an excellent option when dealing with communication through electric transmission lines.
