ACSR ALUMINUM CONDUCTOR STEEL REINFORCED

ACSR ALUMINUM CONDUCTOR STEEL REINFORCED

APPLICATION

Used as bare overhead transmission cable and as primary and secondary distribution cable. ACSR offers optimal strength for line design. Variable steel core stranding enables desired strength to be achieved without sacrificing ampacity.

PRODUCT FEATURES

Aluminum alloy 1350-H-19 wires, concentrically stranded about one steel core. Core wire for ACSR is available with class A, B, or C galvanizing; “aluminized” aluminum coated (AZ); or aluminum-clad (AW). Additional corrosion protection is available through the application of grease to the core or infusion of the complete cable with grease.

SPECIFICATIONS

ACSR bare conductor meets or exceeds the following ASTM specifications:

  • B-230 Aluminum Wire, 1350-H19 for Electrical Purposes
  • B-231 Aluminum Conductors, Concentric-Lay-Stranded
  • B-232 Aluminum Conductors, Concentric-Lay-Stranded, Coated Steel Reinforced
  • B-341 Aluminum-Coated Steel Core Wire for Aluminum Conductors, Steel Reinforced (ACSR/AZ)
  • B-498 Zinc-Coated Steel Core Wire for Aluminum Conductors, Steel Reinforced (ACSR/AZ)
  • B-500 Zinc-Coated and Aluminum-Coated Stranded Steel Core for Aluminum Conductors, Steel Reinforced (ACSR)

1. Resistance is calculated using ASTM standard increments of stranding, and metal conductivies of 61.2% IACS for EC (1350), and 8% IACS for steel. AC (60 Hz) resistance includes current dependent hysteresis loss factor for 1 and 3 constructions.
2. Current ratings are based on 75°C conductor temperature, 25°C ambient, 2ft/sec wind, 96/watts/sq. foot sun, 0.5 coefficients of emissivity and absorption.
