BICC® Brand TransPowr® Self-Damping Conductor

General Cable’s TransPowr® Self-Damping Conductor (SDC) design features a gap between the steel core and the surrounding aluminum layer(s) that prevents the formation of standing waves along the span, resulting in higher design tension. Thus, the SDC offers the possibility of shorter towers, longer spans, and better reliability.


  • Conductor consisting of a steel core surrounded by one or more self-supporting aluminum A1 (1350-H19) or A4 (6101-T83) layers
  • Includes Standard (S1A), High (S2A), or Extra High (S3A) strength steel in the core materials
  • Meets or exceeds the requirements of CAN/CSA C61089
