Utility tools: Southwire’s Utility Wire Catalog App provides easy viewing of utility conductor and cable product information such as applications, specifications, construction and data for each product in the extensive line. This Southwire app is now available in the App Store for use on Apple products and features an easy-to-navigate diagram so the user can select products based on where they are used in the utility system. The mobile app allows users to browse the complete catalog, search for products based on use, and scan a product barcode in the field to access the technical specs on the conductor. The Southwire Utility Wire Catalog App also enables the user to compare products, save jobs for future reference, and export product information that can be easily transmitted and shared.
