Grounding & Static Wire

Grounding & static wire are all essential components in the utility industry. AWG offers many types of electrical wire and cable and can ensure you obtain exactly what you need.

  • Grounding Wire
    Grounding Wire

    Grounding Wire

    Grounding wires act as a crucial safety measure against electric shocks and fires, providing a low electrical impedance path to ground. They are installed with static wire and transmission lines.

  • Static Wire
    Static Wire

    Static Wire

    Static wire is installed along the top of utility poles, typically above the transmission wires. Its role is to reduce any electrical damage that might occur during storms by dispelling power surges from lightning strikes. Static wire is usually made from galvanized or aluminized steel.

Transmission & Distribution Cables

Power transmission is the process of moving electrical energy from a power source, such as a power plant, to an electrical substation where it can be distributed to end users. This conductors and cables must be produced from high-quality, reliable materials to ensure reliable access to electricity. At AWG, we offer many solutions for handling large amounts of electricity efficiently.

  • Overhead Conductors

    Overhead Conductors

    Overhead conductors are key components in the transmission and distribution of electrical power. These conductors are typically made from materials like aluminum, which is often reinforced with a steel core to enhance strength and conductivity. They are strung between tall utility poles or transmission towers and are exposed to the open air, which serves as an insulator.  AWG offers a range of aluminum overhead conductors such as ACSR, ACSR/AWG, AWAC, ACSS, AAC, AAAC, ACAR, Bare Aluminum Twisted Pair, ACSR/TW, and ACSS/TW.

  • Tree Wire and Spacer Cable
    Tree Wire and Spacer Cable

    Tree Wire and Spacer Cable

    AerialGuard® Cable (tree wire and spacer cable) is intended for use in overhead primary and secondary distribution systems rated 15 -35 kV (nominal) typically to prevent faults due to contact or where space is limited. The track resistant 3-layer system prevents short-circuits and flashovers in the case of contact with trees or wildlife. When installed correctly, this system is effective at preventing system outages, damage, or fires as a result of falling trees or branches.

Low & Medium Cables

Low & Medium Voltage wire & cable transmit electricity from generating plants throughout the electrical grid. At AWG, we offer low and medium-voltage options to meet diverse application needs.

  • Low Voltage Cables
    Low Voltage Cables

    Low Voltage Cables

    Low-voltage electrical cables are suitable for voltages up to 2,000 volts. They are typically made from tin-copper, bare copper, or aluminum. AWG offers SunGuard® photovoltaic wire and our patented TowerGuard CCA® cable. These low-voltage electrical cables are installed in building wiring, battery energy storage systems (BESS), and wind and solar applications.

  • Medium Voltage Cables
    Medium Voltage Cables

    Medium Voltage Cables

    Medium voltage electrical cables are used with voltages from 5,000 to 35,000 volts. These cables are designed for applications that require large amounts of power, such as utility or renewable generation facilities. With medium voltage cables, the insulation system is crucial. AWG offers PowerGuard® medium voltage power cables. These products typically feature copper or aluminum conductors insulated with water tree-retardant cross-linked polyethylene (TR-XLPE) or ethylene propylene rubber (EPR).

Multiplex Cables: Overhead and Underground

Multiplex utility cables are designed to carry multiple electrical signals simultaneously, enhancing efficiency and reducing the need for multiple separate cables.

  • Overhead Cables
    Overhead Cables

    Overhead Cables

    Since they are installed above ground, overhead multiplex cables reduce maintenance costs, since they are fast and easy to access. Overhead cables can transmit high voltage signals easier than underground installations since they do not require components like duct banks and vault. AWG offers overhead and underground multiplex electric wire and cable.

  • Underground Cables
    Underground Cables

    Underground Cables

    Underground cables are insulated electrical wires that can be directly buried or installed in ducts for distribution of electricity.

Armored Cables

Armored Cables are types of electrical cables that are equipped with a protective metal covering to enhance their durability and safety. The armor layer, typically made from steel or aluminum, provides additional protection against physical threats like crushing, cutting, and rodent damage. This makes armored cables particularly suitable for use in environments where the risk of mechanical damage is high, such as in industrial settings, underground systems, or in buildings’ structural elements.

Industrial Control Cables

Control Cables

Substation control cables control cables are specialized cables used within electrical substations to facilitate the control, monitoring, and protection of the power transmission and distribution network. These cables are essential for carrying low voltage signals between control equipment, relays, switches, and other critical components within the substation.

Portable Power Cables

Portable power cables or extension cords are multi-conductor cables that are used to establish temporary electrical connections or flexible links between fixed and mobile or moving systems. These cables must be flexible and easy to transport.

Fiber Optic Cables

Fiber optic technology involves the use of fibers made from glass or plastic to transmit data as pulses of light. Fiber optic cables are multi-optical cable assemblies that carry light. They can contain up to thousands of optical fibers within a plastic casing. Also known as optical fiber cables, these components transfer data signals much faster than traditional electrical cables. They are used in long-distance telecommunication or high-speed data connection applications.
