ACSR Conductors & Accessories

ACSR (Aluminum Conductor Steel Reinforced) conductors are composed of multiple l


ayers of aluminum wire concentrically stranded with a coated steel core of high
strength. The core
can be single wire or multiple stranded as per the requirements of size. The var
iable nature of the stranding in the steel core enables the achievement of desir
ed strength without
compromising on ampacity. ACSR offers high tensile strength for line design and
with a lightweight structure, are ideal for use as transmission & distribution c
ables. We provide ACSR
conductors and aluminium conductors and allied accessories that are ideal for di
verse applications.
