Aluminum conductor steel supported-trapezoidal wire is widely used in overhead distribution and transmission lines. This product has the special design of equal area and equal diameter. The equal area design enables equal capacity to go through smaller diameter conductor compared with a standard ACSS conductor. The equal diameter design allows more capacity to go through an equal diameter conductor compared with a standard ACSS conductor.
The aluminum-clad or zinc-5% aluminum mischmetal alloy coating protects the steel core wires from corrosion. High, extra and ultra high strength steels are also available. Non-specular finish can be used in all ACSS products.
