ADSS Advantages to Strand and Lash Fiber Cables in Aerial Electric Utility Applications

August 24, 2018

All-dielectric self-supporting (ADSS) fiber cables provide advantages over strand and lash fiber networks for electric utility applications in many cases. Some of these advantages to ADSS cables include:

  • No metallic components – can install in supply space and grounding is not required
  • Little to no “make ready” cost
  • Lower hardware costs
  • Speed and ease of installation
  • Minimal long term maintenance
  • Longer expected design life

In most scenarios, these advantages lead to a lower total cost for the electric utility. This paper will further explore some of the advantages of using ADSS cable as opposed to a strand and lash fiber cable for aerial electric utility applications.
