Product Details

ACSR Aluminum Conductor Steel Reinforced

Product Description:

Similar to All Aluminum Conductor, this conductor is centered by a steel galvanized central core. The steel core can be
varied to achieve the desired durability and conductor strength. The outer layers of this conductor are made of
aluminum, providing a corrosion-resistant, long-lasting product. Application of grease to the core or to the entire cable
can further improve the cables resistance to corrosion.

Applications:

Like AAC, ACSR is primarily used as an overhead transmission cable and can also be used for primary and secondary
distribution. This conductor is typically preferred in a heavy construction area because of its reinforced steel core.
Although it is heavier than AAC, it can be moved in and out of a construction area relatively easily. This cable is also
useful in areas with high winds or frequent storms.

Specifications:

In accordance with specifications set forth by the American Society for Testing and Materials:

This product is composed of a variety of aluminum conductors. B-230, 231, and 232.
Steel reinforced core is coated with B-341 aluminum, B-498 Zinc, and B-802 Zinc-5% Misch Metal alloy.
