Malesela Taihan Electric Cable Also known as M-TEC, has been a leading player in the cable industry in South Africa for over 50 years. Established in 1911, M-TEC has developed into a market leader in the wire and cable industry and today the company is ranked as one of South Africa’s largest manufacturers and suppliers of Aluminium overhead conductors, copper products, low and medium voltage power cables and various optical fibre cables
Aluminium Overhead Conductors
AAC – All Aluminium Conductors These conductors are used in low, medium and high voltage overhead lines. AAC has seen extensive use in urban areas where spans are usually short but high conductivity us required. AAAC – Aluminium Alloy Are used as a bare conductor cable on aerial circuits that require a larger mechanical resistance than the AAC and a better corrosion resistance than the ACSR. The sag characteristics and the strength-to-weight ratio of the AAAC conductor cable is better than both AAC and ACSR. ACSR – Aluminium Conductors Aluminium conductor steel-reinforced cable (ACSR) is a type of high-capacity, high-strength stranded conductor typically used in overhead power lines. The outer strands are high-purity aluminium, chosen for its good conductivity, low weight, low cost, resistance to corrosion and decent mechanical stress resistance. OPGW Overhead Conductors OPGW or known as Optical Ground Wire is a type of cable or wire that is used in transmission lines construction. It is also known as optical fiber composite overhead ground wire. It can serve as a grounding wire, shielding wire, and at the same time a cable used for communication purposes Use / Application Power line protection system Power line operation system Maintenance data information system Monitoring and controlling electrical power system
OVERHEAD CONDUCTORS Aluminium Overhead Conductors 66kV-765kV range (SABS) AAC – All Aluminium Conductors, AAAC – Aluminium Alloy, ACSR – Aluminium Conductors Steel Reinforced OPGW combines a ground wire for shielding overhead power transmission lines together with optical fibres for transmission of communication signals. The products designed to resist strong winds,lighting and short circuit current
