SPEC 80140

ACAR

Aluminum Conductor. Aluminum Alloy Reinforced. Bare.

...

Construction:

  1. Conductor:Aluminum 1350-H19 wires, concentrically stranded about an aluminum-alloy 6201-T81 core.
  • Although the alloy strands generally comprise the core of the conductor, in some constructions they are distributed in layers throughout the aluminum 1350-H19 strands.

Applications and Features:

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.

Specifications:

  • ASTM B230 Aluminum, 1350-H19 Wire for Electrical Purposes
  • ASTM B398 Standard Specification for Aluminum-Alloy 6201-T81 and 6201-T83 Wire for Electrical Purposes
  • ASTM B524 Concentric-Lay-Stranded Aluminum Conductors, Aluminum-Alloy Reinforced (ACAR, 1350/6201)
