ACSR/AW – Aluminum Conductor Steel Reinforced/AW Core

Product Description

Concentric-lay-stranded conductors made from round Aluminum Alloy 1350-H19 with an aluminum-clad steel core, either AW2 (normal strength) or AW3 (high strength).

Application

Primarily used as the phase conductor for overhead transmission and distribution. It is preferred over conventional ACSR because of its higher corrosion resistance, lighter weight, longer service life, and reduced power loss.

Specification Data

ASTM B-230 Aluminum wire, 1350-H19 for electrical purposes
ASTM B-502 Aluminum-clad steel core wire for aluminum conductors, aluminum-clad steel reinforced, either AW2 (normal strength) or AW3 (high strength)
ASTM B-549 Aluminum conductors, concentric-lay-stranded, aluminum-clad steel reinforced (ACSR/AW)
