AAAC – All Aluminum Alloy (6201) Conductor

Product Description

Aluminum Alloy 6201 wires, concentrically stranded.

Application

Used as bare overhead conductor for primary and secondary distribution. Design utilizes a high-strength aluminum alloy to achieve a high strength to weight ratio. Affords better sag characteristics. Aluminum alloy gives AAAC (6201) higher resistance to corrosion than ACSR.

Specification Data

ASTM B-398 Aluminum Alloy 6201-T81 wire for electrical purposes
ASTM B-399 Concentric-lay-stranded 6201-T81 Aluminum Alloy conductors
