AAAC bare conductors meet or exceed the following ASTM specifications:
B-230 Aluminium Wire, 1350-H19 for Electrical Purposes
B-398 Aluminium Alloy 6201-T81 for Electrical Purposes
B-524 Concentric-Lay-Stranded Aluminium Conductors, Aluminium Alloy Reinforced ACAR, 1350/6201
ACAR (Aluminum conductor aluminum alloy reinforced)Used as overhead transmission cable and as primary,secondary distribution . A good strength-to-weight ratio makes ACAR applicable where both ampacity and strength are prime considerations in line design; for equal weight, ACAR offers higher strength and ampacity than ACSR.Heat Resistance Aluminum Alloy Strand is suitable for substations,power plants and other large-current transmission,saving engineering investment.
AAC consists of 6201-T81 aluminum alloy core concentrically stranded by aluminum 1350 H-19 wires.
