ARAD Covered Conductor is a messenger wire supported primary distribution system using covered conductors in a closed triangular/delta configuration. the messenger wire is tensioned to an initial tension and the three covered phase conductors are suspended from the messenger wire using the specially designed spacer. The messenger wire is the support member and earth of the system because of its high strength and high conductivity. The all aluminium conductors (AAC) are double insulated and have the ability to withstand temporary contact between phases or contact with other objects like falling tree branches, without causing service interruptions. The unique design of the Hendrix system allows the phase conductors to be hung from the messenger wire by means of the spacer which results in virtually no tension on the conductors.
