ACSS/AW – Aluminum Conductor Steel Supported/AW Core

Product Description

ACSS/AW is a composite concentric-lay-stranded conductor. Aluminum-clad steel strands, either AW2 (normal strength) or AW3 (high strength), form the central core of the conductor with one or more layers of aluminum 1350-0 wire stranded around it. The aluminum-clad steel core carries most or all of the mechanical load of the conductor due to the “0” (fully annealed or soft) temper aluminum. The steel core wires are protected from corrosion by an aluminum coating.

Application

ACSS/AW is used for overhead distribution and transmission lines. It is designed to operate continuously at elevated temperatures up to 250˚C without loss of strength; it sags less under emergency electrical loadings than ACSR/AW; it is self-damping if pre-stretched during installation; and its final sags are not affected by long term creep of applications requiring increased current with existing tensions and clearances, new line applications where structures can be economized because of reduced conductor sag, new line applications requiring high emergency loadings, and lines where aeolian vibration is a problem. ACSS/AW offers strength characteristics similar to ACSS, along with slightly greater ampacity and resistance to corrosion due to the aluminum-cladding of the steel core wires.

Specification Data

ASTM B-609 Aluminum 1350 round wire, annealed intermediate tempers 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)

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)

ACSS – Aluminum Conductor Steel Supported

Product Description

ACSS is a concentric-lay stranded composite conductor made up of a core of galvanized steel strands and one or more layers of annealed or soft 1350-0 Aluminum. The steel core wire is Class A galvanized zinc-coated steel which, due to the annealed or soft temper Aluminum, carries most or all of the mechanical load of the conductor. Upon request the steel core is available in High strength.

Application

Aluminum conductor steel supported (ACSS) cable is used for overhead transmission lines. ACSS is designed to operate continuously at higher temperatures up to 250ᵒC without loss of strength, which allows for a significant increase in current carrying capacity over ACSR. ACSS is self-damping, sags less than ACSR under emergency electrical loadings, and its final sags are not affected by the long term creep of aluminum. These advantages make ACSS useful in new line applications where structures can be optimized due to the reduced conductor sag or where high emergency loads may be required; or in lines where Aeolian vibration is a problem. Existing lines can be re-conductored using ACSS to allow for increased current using the existing clearances and tensions.

ACAR – Aluminum Conductor Alloy (6201) Reinforced

Product Description

ACAR is a concentric-lay stranded conductor made up of Aluminum 1350-H19 and Aluminum Alloy 6201 strands. While the 6201 Alloy strands usually make up the core with the Aluminum 1350 stranded around them, in some constructions the 6201 Alloy can be distributed in the layers of 1350 Aluminum. The Aluminum Alloy 6201 wires of ACAR preform much like the galvanized steel core of ACSR by mechanically reinforcing the conductor while offering a much higher ampacity. For equal weight, ACAR conductors offer higher strength and ampacity than ACSR conductors.

Application

Aluminum conductor alloy (6201) reinforced (ACAR) is used as bare overhead transmission and both primary and secondary distribution cable. A good strength to weight ratio make ACAR a preferred choice for lines where both strength and current carrying capacity are the foremost considerations.
