SPEC 80130

AAAC-6201

All Aluminum-Alloy Conductor. Bare.

...

Construction:

  1. Conductor:Aluminum-alloy 6201-T81 wires, concentrically stranded.

Applications and Features:

Used as bare overhead conductor for primary and secondary distribution. Designed utilizing a high-strength aluminum-alloy to achieve a high strength-to-weight ratio; affords good sag characteristics. Aluminum-alloy gives 6201-T81 gives AAAC higher resistance to corrosion than ACSR.

Specifications:

  • ASTM B398 Standard Specification for Aluminum-Alloy 6201-T81 and 6201-T83 Wire for Electrical Purposes
  • ASTM B400 Standard Specification for Compact Round Concentric-Lay-Stranded, Aluminum 1350 Conductors
