EARTHWIRES AND CONDUCTORS WITH INTEGRATED OPTICAL FIBRES
OPGW/OPPC - ANOTHER HIGH-TECH PRODUCT FROM LUMPI-BERNDORF, FOR UNIMPEDED DATA AND ENERGY TRANSMISSION
Fibre optic earthwires/conductors for combined energy and data transmission in the field of telecommunications are among the high-tech products available from LUMPI-BERNDORF. The strands may be used either as earth wires or as phase conductors.
The actual communication elements, the optical fibres, are arranged in small stainless steel tubes. In conjunction with a moisture-repellent gel, the hermetically-sealed small steel tubes provide optimal protection against mechanical stresses and humidity. So as to make it possible to distinguish between the small stainless steel tubes, they may also be equipped with a surface marking if required.
THE USE OF HIGHLY-RESISTANT STEEL WIRES IN CONJUNCTION WITH A THICK ALUMINIUM COATING GIVES CONSIDERABLE ADVANTAGES COMPARED WITH CONVENTIONAL GALVANISED STEEL WIRES.
LUMPI-BERNDORF has been processing ALUMINIUM CLAD STEEL WIRES since 1970. These are highly-resistant steel wires that are coated with aluminium in a special extrusion process and then drawn out to the required final diameter using a hydrodynamic drawing process. They are used in overhead conductors as a replacement for galvanised steel.
ALUMINIUM CLAD STEEL WIRES are used to produce our own overhead conductors and are also supplied to the cable industry.
OVERHEAD CONDUCTORS - able to withstand long-term thermal loads up to 80 °C
MORE THAN JUST STANDARD
The standard overhead conductor is used for a long-term thermal load of up to 80 °C. In order to increase transmission performance while keeping the same conductor design, aluminium conductors aluminium clad steel reinforced (ACSR/ACS) may be used in place of aluminium conductors steel reinforced (ACSR). In this case, the galvanised steel wires are replaced by aluminium clad steel wires of the same diameter.
LUMPI-BERNDORF IS A GLOBAL COMPANY SPECIALISING IN THE MANUFACTURE OF WIRES AND OVERHEAD CONDUCTORS FOR ELECTRICAL ENERGY AND DATA TRANSMISSION.
Thanks to uncompromising quality awareness and consistent further development of our products, we are the strategic partner for energy producers and power grid operators when it comes to implementing complex projects and solutions to problems.
With the production of wires and special overhead conductors to increase distribution and transmission performance while simultaneously reducing disruptive environmental factors, we are also a pioneer in environmental protection issues, particularly when it is a case of developing sustainable solutions for the future.
