How do I determine the Sag and Tension Guideline for self-supporting cables?

February 4, 2020

When installing self-supporting copper cables, determine the storm loading district where the installation will take place. Storm Loading districts are defined in the National Electrical Safety Code (NESC) for the continental United States, but may be further defined by state and/or local codes and ordinances.

Once identified, the loading district along with the product / pair count and AWG can be used to access guidelines for span lengths, sag and tension data. Learn more about Sag and Tension Guidelines by clicking the link here.
