ACSR Aluminium Conductor Steel Reinforced Conductor

Used as bare overhead transmission conductor and as primary and secondary distribution conductor and messenger support. ACSR offers optimal strength for line design. Variable steel core stranding enables desired strength to be achieved without sacrificing ampacity.

ACSR Aluminium Conductor Steel Reinforced Conductor APPLICATION

ACSR is available in a range of steel contents ranging from 6% to 40% for additional strength. The higher strength ACSR conductors are commonly used for river crossings, overhead earth wires, and installations involving extra-long spans.

The ACSR conductor can against any given resistance, be manufactured to different tensile strengths, so a high tensile strength combined with its lightweight properties means it can cover longer distances with fewer supports. Due to the greater diameter of the ACSR conductor, a much higher corona limit can be obtained which is advantageous on high and extra-high voltage overhead lines.

With simple structure, the aluminium conductor steel reinforced is easy to set up and maintain, with low cost and high power transmission capacity. It is advantageous for the ACSR to be put up across a valley or river or under other various special geographic conditions.

The advantages of ACSR are sound electrical conductivity, high mechanical strength, high tensile strength etc. It is used for power transmission lines with various voltage levels and plays an important role in the electricity transmission field.
