Overhead Line Conductor

AAC/TW Overhead line conductors

  • All Aluminium Conductor
  • Trapezoidal Shaped Conductors
  • Bare

AAC/TW used as a bare overhead conductor. There are two designs of AAC/TW. One design gives an equal area of aluminium when compared to the standard AAC conductor sizes. The other design is conductor with overall outside diameters that are in fixed-increments.

Use of this conductor in the equal area design allows comparable ampacity in a smaller diameter conductor when compared with standard AAC conductor. Use of this conductor in the fixed-increment diameter design allows more ampacity in an equal diameter conductor when compared with standard AAC conductor.

Bare conductor meets or exceeds the following ASTM specifications:

  • B230 Aluminium 1350-H19 Wire for Electrical Purposes
  • B778 Shaped Wire Compact Concentric-Lay-Stranded Aluminium Conductors (AAC/TW).
