250 MCM Hofstra Single Aluminum Conductor 600V URD
250 MCM Hofstra Single Aluminum Conductor Underground Direct Burial 600V URD
Allowable Ampacity for 250 Hofstra Single Aluminum Conductor Underground Direct Burial 600V URD: 320 Amps
The Aluminum 600V URD is designed to serve in the secondary distribution circuits for power. In these secondary circuits, the electrical cable is installed in duct or direct burial applications. Due to its versatility, conductor strength, and insulation integrity, it works well for these outdoor applications. It is also used in wet and dry places since the cable has a maximum operating temperature of 90°C. The electrical cable is also designed to provide an option of pre-pulling into ducts.

Aluminum 600V URD is approved to meet design, production and application standards. The following are some of the standard it has met:
Approved by ICEA S-105-692
Accepted by RUS
This is an aluminum conductor cable. The conductor is designed in two forms: either concentric strand or compressed. The stranded type tends to be more flexible compared to the compressed series of aluminum conductors. The 1350-H19 series of compressed aluminum conductors are suitable for applications where flexibility is overlooked and cable rigidity is guaranteed.
Aluminum 600V URD cable has black resistant cross-linked polyethylene (XLP) insulation. The conductors are normally cabled together with XLP insulated aluminum ground or bare copper ground and covered with reinforced binder tape. XLP insulation is tough and resistant to impact, abrasion, chemicals, acids, oils, industrial solvents, and changes in weather.
