AAC conductor is also known as an aluminum stranded conductor. Aluminum Stranded Conductor is manufactured from electrolytically refined aluminum, with a minimum purity of 99.7%.
Basic design to BS 215-1 / BS EN 50182 / IEC 61089 / ASTM B 231/B 231M / DIN 48201-5 standards
Concentric lay stranded Aluminum Conductor (AAC) is made up of one or more strands of hard drawn 1350 aluminum alloy. These Aluminum Stranded Conductor are used in low, medium and high voltage overhead lines.
AAC has seen extensive use in urban areas where spans are usually short but high conductivity we required. The excellent corrosion resistance of aluminum has made AAC a conductor of choice in coastal areas.
Because of its relatively poor strength to weight ratio, AAC had limited use in transmission lines and rural distribution because of long spans utilized.
All aluminum conductor cables are made up of one or more strands of aluminum wire dep.
