ACSR conductors meet or exceed the following ASTM B-230 Aluminum Wire, 1350-H19 for Electrical Purposes
B-232 Aluminum Conductors, Concentric-Lay-Stranded,Coated Steel Reinforced (ACSR)
B-341 Aluminum Coated (Aluminized) Steel Core Wire for Aluminum Conductors, Steel Reinforced (ACSR/AZ)
B-498 Zinc Coated Steel (Galvanized) Core Wire for Aluminum Conductors, Steel Reinforced (ACSR)
B-500 Zinc Coated and Aluminum Coated Stranded Steel Core for Aluminum Conductors, Steel Reinforced (ACSR)
ACSR used as bare overhead transmission cable and as primary and secondary distribution cable. ACSR offers optimal strength for line design. Variable steel core stranding enables desired strength to be achieved without sacrificing ampacity.
ACSR is a concentrically stranded conductor composed of one or more layers of hard-drawn 1350H19 aluminum wire stranded with a highstrength coated steel core. The core maybe single wire or stranded depending on the size.
