ACAR Overhead Line Conductor

ACAR Overhead line conductor

  • Aluminium Conductor
  • Aluminium Reinforced Reinforced
  • Bare

ACAR used as bare overhead transmission cable and as primary and secondary distribution cable. 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.

Bare conductor meets or exceeds the following ASTM specifications:

  • B230 Aluminium 1350-H19 Wire for Electrical Purposes
  • B398 Aluminium-Alloy 6201-T81 Wire for Electrical Purposes.
  • B524 Concentric-Lay-Stranded Aluminium Conductors, Aluminium-Alloy Reinforced (ACAR, 1350/6201).
