ABC is a very innovative concept for overhead power distribution as compared to the conventional bare conductor overhead distribution system. It is being designed, manufactured & tested as per IS:14255:1995. It provides higher level of safety and reliablity, lower power losses and ultimate system economy by reducing installation, maintenance & operation cost. ABC are much lighter, economically feasible and higher current rating of at least 10% more than underground armoured cables.ABC aluminum conductor are mainly XLPE Insulated and each core are twisted round a aluminum alloy Bare stranded conductor called messenger. The messenger conductor facilitates suspension of the cable on hooks and clamps in street lightning poles. Hooking and pilferage of power is perused. Installation time is much less.
