Used as bare overhead transmission and as primary and secondary distribution cable.It has good characteristics such as simple structure, convenient installation and maintenance, low cost for the line, large transmission capacity. It is also suitable for laying across rivers and valleys where special geographical features exist.ACSR/AW offers strength characteristics similar to ACSR, along with slightly greater ampacity and resistance to corrosion due to aluminum-cladding of the steel core wires.
ACSR/AW bare conductor meets or exceeds the following ASTM specifications:
• B230 Aluminum 1350-H19 Wire for Electrical Purposes.
• B502 Aluminum-Clad Steel Core Wire for Use in Overhead Electrical Aluminum Conductors.
•B549 Concentric-Lay Stranded Aluminum Conductors, Aluminum-Clad Steel Reinforced (ACSR-AW)
Aluminum 1350-H19 wires, concentrically stranded around aluminum-clad steel core.
