Aluminum Conductor Steel Reinforced (ACSR)

Aluminum Conductor Steel Reinforced, Bare
Bare Overhead Transmission Cable

Construction
Category Conductor Description ACSR, a non-homogenous conductor, is a concentric-lay-stranded conductor made from round aluminum 1350-H19 (extra hard) wires and round, coated steel core wire(s)
  • The favorable strength/weight ratio, achieved by the lightweight, strong conductivity of aluminum coupled with the high tensile strength of steel, makes ACSR conductors a preferred choice for overhead power transmission and distribution projects
  • ACSR conductors are manufactured in accordance with the ASTM specification B232
  • Other ASTM referenced specifications include B230, B498, B500, B606, B802, B803, B957 and B958
