Steel Reinforced Aluminum Conductor

Application

Aluminum Conductor Steel Reinforced (ACSR) Cables are used as bare overhead transmission conductor and as primary and secondary distribution conductor and messenger support. ACSR offers optimal strength for line design. Variable steel core stranding enables desired strength to be achieved without sacrificing ampacity.

Standard

Basic design to ASTM standard

Specifications

Caledonian's ACSR bare conductor meets or exceeds the following ASTM specifications: 1.B-230 Aluminum Wire, 1350-H19 for Electrical Purposes. 2.B-231 Aluminum Conductors, Concentric-Lay-Stranded. 3.B-232 Aluminum Conductors, Concentric-Lay-Stranded, Coated Steel Reinforced (ACSR) 4.B-341 Aluminum-Coated Steel Core Wire for Aluminum Conductors, Steel Reinforced (ACSR/AZ). 5.B-498 Zinc-Coated Steel Core Wire for Aluminum Conductors, Steel Reinforced (ACSR). 6.B-500 Metallic Coated Stranded Steel Core for Use in Overhead Electrical Conductors. 7.B-802 Zinc-5% Aluminum-Mischmetal Alloy-Coated Steel Core Wire for Aluminum Conductors, Steel Reinforced (ACSR).

Construction
Aluminum 1350-H19 wires, concentrically stranded about a steel core. Standard core wire for ACSR is class A galvanized. Class A core stranding is also available in zinc-5% aluminum-mischmetal alloy coating. For aluminum-clad (AW) ACSR, please refer to the ACSR/AW catalog sheet Additional corrosion protection is available through the application of grease to the core or infusion of the complete cable with grease. ACSR conductor is also available in non-specular.
